About Me:

US Army Veteran, disabled, back problems, BA in Philosophy in 1978

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Electronics, music, German (learning), Amplifier building. I don't want to make friends here.

What I do for a living:

Retired from working hard ... Disabled

Headphone Inventory

Etymotic ER4P, Etymotic 6i isolator, Ultimate Ears - Triple Fi 10 PRO, Yuin OK1;OK2; OK3; PK2; PK3, Head Direct RE0 and RE ZERO, Ortofon e-Q7, Sleek Audio 6, Grado 325is, Sony MDR- SA5000, and others. Panasonic HP-HJE900 Zirconia. Note: Yuin PK1 Was in the list but it became unfunctional almost since I bought them, woe for me because I waited about 2 years, no guarantee. Bad quality, I think, will not buy another.

Headphone Amp Inventory

Phonitor 2730, Practical Devices XM5, Cmoy (bought on eBay), self assembled Mini3 and M3, FiiO E7. Muse Mini DAC with 4 TDA1543 DAC ICs (got it to take the optical signal from the Shanling CD Player as an input to the Phonitor).

Source Inventory

Sansa Fuze 4Gig with 16Gig card; Sansa Clip 8Gig with 8Gig card. And Lastly, an Ipod classic 160G. I also use a Media Player to hear music and see movies. The quality of my Media Player is exceptional, music output is from an optical cable.

Cable Inventory

Ordered to build cables for my Phonitor 2730 with Canare L-4E6S, their Quad audio cable with Neutrik NJ3FC6-BAG connectors. Neutrik connectors for the input of the amplifier. I don't hear difference between cables, however, nice made cables look better, do they?

Other Audio Equipment

Harman Kardon HK3490 (Stereo 120 watts per channel). Speakers Ascend Acoustics CBM170, Shanling PCD3000A CD player.

Audio-Related Tweaks

I use all my equipments manufacturer's default.

Music Preferences

Almost all genres.

Interests (non-headphone)

Good music and good movies.

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)

Movie DVDs, Satellite Television (FTA), Philosophy Books, Technical Books, I discovered the MEDIA PLAYERS that use a Hard Disc and/or SD Cards, USB inputs of any kind (Hard Discs, memory sticks, etc.) I presently own one that reads DVD ISO files (movies, that is), read FLAC, OGG, WAV, MP3, DTS audio, and many others. It has a DIGITAL output that can be the input of a DAC and it produces the best audio QUALITY that I have heard in my life. Media players are the next advance in media players. You can rip SACDs and hear them, and can have 2 Terabites or more of media files. I own the Argosy HV335T 3.5" HDD 1080P HDMI Mobile Video Media Player bought on eBay to GOWHOLESALER.
