About Me:

Love music...would love to talk with you about favorite bands in avantgarde-metal, or postrock genre

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Or radio-rock/alternative/hip-hop; .talk music in general ;)

hotsauce, grip strength, computers.

What I do for a living:


Headphone Inventory


SR325is w/ V4 magnum mod (black anodize)

Headphone Amp Inventory

asus expansion headphone amp card

(eyes set on some vintage receivers)

Source Inventory

FLACs fed to my greedy ears through mediamonkey<---amazing program

(eyes set on a TT ...already started collecting the vinyl xD)

Cable Inventory

Black dragon 10' for my Magnum 325s (mainly because the stock cable went bad, and meow I have 10' of freedom)

Power-Related Components

? not sure... i use a Tripp Lite ISOBAR8ULTRA 8-Outlet ISOBAR Surge Protector if that's what goes here :3

Other Audio Equipment

(my main set up): g-d audio NFB 17.2 which screams at a pair of emotiva pro airmotiv 5s.

Music Preferences

I'm obviously a huge motW fan but I listen to everything; with a partial inclination towards avant garde metal (mr. bungle, nuclear rabbit, idiot flesh, dog fashion disco, etc.) solo pianists (Dax Johnson, Rob Costlow, Ludovico Einaudi, etc.) and post-rock (maybeshewill, GY!BE, Mogwai, etc.) tons of artists that have prog. jazz or blues influences frequent my playlists. While I do listen to all genres of music anything "heavy" or "slow/acoustic" generally finds a soft spot, so-to-speak.

Interests (non-headphone)

I love to scour the internet (through wicked-awesome usage of YouTube, music-map, and pandora) for "new" bands/artists. This began to (more frequently than not) introduce me to bands that are no-more & have long-OOP material. Falling in love with such a band can only prompt one to search for orig. source material (CDs/LPs/cassettes)

I found myself, often times, spending lots of cash on rare albums so I could obtain FLACs...from there a collection was born.
...typing it out like that on a HiFi forum that is known to be a cancer on wallets begets the question, Is my true hobby: hating money?
