Interests (non-headphone)

Started with reel to reel then to cassettes (in the sixties) moved to Super VHS then to DAT then to MD High then to MP3 at 320 or FLAC whenever possible. Always disliked Apple's control of the music and the issues with ipod sound quality - I read Steve Jobs book and completed my dislike for his attempt to ownthe music and not let us tinker with what we buy from Apple. Great designs and good direction in forcing the progressive thinking i.e. Pixar.
