Cable Inventory

I wish cables would not exist.
I also do not belive in added benifits of audio related cables.
Maybe some low eddy current design or mono crystal-ish design have something to it.. fair enough, but 800$??

Power-Related Components

Buck-boost stabilizer.

Other Audio Equipment

Genelec A8050 studio monitors
Nord Lead 2

Audio-Related Tweaks

I once built many speakers, which turned out nice and even a few pairs of headphones that turned out awful.
Many years of tinkering with room acoustic treatment.

Music Preferences

Almost anything that is recorded well.

Artists/Groups/Composers: Archive, Garbage, The Tool, Meshuggah, Puscifer, Radiohead, Portishead, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Nicolas Jaar, Massive Attack, Infected Mushroom, Benn Jordan (Flashbulb, Acidwolf etc), Fu_k Buttons, BT, Arvo Pärt, Rachmaninov, Mahler, Beethoven, Miles Davis and the list goes on.

I don'd like country, most of r'n'b, 80's pop in general and i don't think i ''dig'' hip-hop.

Interests (non-headphone)

Knife sharpening. Japanese knives.
Lathe. Workshop.
Project buggies.
Select few computer games.

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

Leatherman Surge multitool
Victorinox small pocket knife and large pocket knife
