My ownership is limited, but my experience is deep...

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Things that are interesting

What I do for a living:

Employed at a dealer specializing in Naim but with great access to all sorts of goodies...

Headphone Inventory

NB: I've attended many audio shows and Head-Fi meets, and working for a dealer allows me to learn about products in unusual depth (not just trying for 5 minutes) as well as to develop an explicit, value- and performance- driven strategy for building true audiophile systems.
