About Me:

Born unexpectedly.

What I do for a living:

Not screwing up too badly.

Power-Related Components

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 totally unnecessary) amount.

Audio-Related Tweaks

False idols, incense burning, chanting, virgin sacrifices, whatever works.

Music Preferences

Almost exclusively: Classical, Jazz, and the great rock bands from the 60s, 70s & 80s all bring me a lot of joy.
Like Buddy Rich, I am allergic to most Country music, except some by Ray Charles, k.d. lang or Alabama.

Interests (non-headphone)

Dying as expected and not a second before.

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

My wife's chest!
