|Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):
||Photography keeps me alive. Writing sometimes contributes. Pining.
|What I do for a living:
||Webmaster (how is that even still a thing)
||Sennheiser HD 650
Sennheiser HD 558 (Uncomfy now that I have the 650s)
JVC HA-FXD80 (Bit too big)
Ortofon eQ-5 (Too big, too sibilant)
Musical Fidelity EB-50 (Hate)
Some old Shure I don't like
|Headphone Amp Inventory
||Cassabria stage in RWA Signature 16
||Mac Pro, mostly ALAC rips, iTunes, Halide Bridge, Channel Islands VDA-2.
||Bypassing cable completely, I have hired a fleet of audio fairies to gently suck up, process internally during flight, and then toot out all of my signals. It's not the most transparent process, but the distortion that is present is warm and pleasing.
|Other Audio Equipment
||Main/desk system is a pair of Audience Clairaudient The Ones driven by a Red Wine Audio Signature 16 Integrated w/ Cassabria HPA stage.
Loft bed system is a Gallo Micro Nucleus SE driven by a ZVex iMPAMP in parallel mono.
My pile of equipment from my past that isn't currently seeing use includes Klipsch Heresy IIs (wood ones), a flaky Superphon Revelation II preamp, the rack-width Roku Soundbridge, a busted Luxman PA, and the backup PA - a functional but not particularly pleasant 6 channel Rotel. I've got a weird Sansui linear-tracking TT that plays both sides of an LP, an old B&O TT in need of a cartridge, and my last TT was a Pro-Ject that I sold off for pennies. Next TT will be a VPI.
||Add a martini to the listening experience. Place unlit scented candle on Class A amp. Envelop body in cashmere.
Winter is largely berlin school & classical.
Spring turns to folk type stuff and the gentler side of indie rock.
Summer brings heavier and/or more electronic-focused indie, as well as heavier/darker experimental electronic (think EN or krautrock).
In autumn I merely listen to the leaves crinkling.
||Photography. Graphic design & illustration. Poetry. Gender politics. Roses.
|Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)
||Pentax MX. Contax T. Leica M2.
HP 16C. HP 71B. HP 41C.
Riedel lead crystal. Barr Hill Gin. Vya extra-dry.
