|Forum Post Count:
||3 hours, 3 minutes ago
|Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):
||Learning whatever I didn't know the day before.
|What I do for a living:
||Not screwing up too badly.
||Sennheiser HD-800, AKG-702 (2nd time), Hifiman HE-5LE. Owned and sold: Sennheiser HD-650; HD-600 (will buy again); AKG 702; Denon D-5000. Tried but didn't buy: Beyerdynamic T1, Ultrasone Edition 8, Grado PS1000, Denon AH-D7000, Hifiman HE-6. All excellent with distinctive and positive characteristics, just not for me.
|Headphone Amp Inventory
||La Figaro 339 (various tubes), a great, great amp!; Audio-gd C-2SA (upgraded volume pot and internal wiring); Audio-gd NFB-11.32; Shanling PH-3000 (x2), an underestimated best-buy in amps; Darkvoice 3322 (a s@#$-load of different tubes), beautiful sound and noiseless performance. [No sinophobia, or xenophobia, in my family tree.] Threshold 400A (for the HE-5LE).
||1. Audiomecca Mephisto IIX transport & Enkianthus X MK. II DAC; Exemplar-Denon 2900 SACD; VPI TNT MK. V, JMW 12.5 arm, ZYX Airy-1000 cartridge (home rig).
2. MacBook Pro (USB); Audio-gd DI; Audio-gd NFB-3
3. MacBook Pro; M2Tech HiFace; TubeMagic D1 DAC
||Ridge Street; Pure Note; Virtual Dynamics; Locus Design Group (USB x2)
||Various. Cables are all massive, anaconda-like suckers. (Scares the crap out of visitors to my music room when they look down.) Presently working with county executives to erect my own, audio-dedicated power station.
|Other Audio Equipment
||An embarrassing (and unnecessary) amount.
||False idols, incense burning, chanting, virgin sacrifices, whatever works.
||Like Buddy Rich, I am allergic to most Country music, except by Ray Charles, k.d. lang or Alabama. Classical, Jazz, and the great rock bands from the 60s, 70s & 80s all bring me a lot of joy.
||Dying as expected and not a second before.
|Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)
||My wife's chest!
