Source Inventory

Current: Audio-gd Master 7 w/ usb TCXO upgrade

No longer: Audio-gd Fun version B (Earth OPA and DA8741 Module)

Cable Inventory

Cabledyne 1 Meter USB (The search for usb is over (tape over +5V and ground))
Wireworld Ultraviolet USB 1 Meter (experiment, lowest expectations yet. Detailed, yet slightly fatiguing)
2 2-meter Cabledyne Silver xlr for speakers

Power-Related Components

1 Cabledyne Silver 14 gauge, with free Furutech end upgrades on my dac
3 Shunyata venom 3 (Much more noticeable than the pangea 9. Beginning to think the Pangea was crippling performance (bass bloat and hardness to treble))

No longer:
Pangea 9 (experiment, appeared to affect sound positively. Actually make treble edgy.)

Other Audio Equipment

Herbie's Tendersoft Tenderfeet (experiment, need to A/B)
Airmotiv 4 speakers (now on 40 inch speaker stands, with Herbie's Sticky Von Schweikert Special dampers)
Full tower pc case fitted with damping material

(Off-ramp 5/6, when I've managed to get everything else in order)

Music Preferences

Classical
Progressive rock

Techno
Rock
Some J-pop
Gaming Music (Final Fantasy so good)
Movie Soundtracks

"If I find the sound agreeable, I shall listen"

However...

NOT COUNTRY.
