About Me:

Founding member, Grumpy Old Men Club.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Aside from Head-fi, I search for the mythical Honest Woman.

What I do for a living:

I help save the world from Evil.

Headphone Inventory

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (250)
Sony MDR 7506 w/Beyer earpad mod (very nice btw)
Audio Technica ATH M40FS (Seems to need extended break-in to be listenable)
Superlux HD 681 (for my son - nice $30 cans, and he can hear me when I holler at him)
Koss KSC75 clip ons (amazing for $15 bucks, great for workouts)

Monoprice 108323 (Ear piece broke after < 1 yr of use, head band uncomfortable - don't buy these)
Razer Carcharias (broke after 6 yrs, nice while they lasted)
Sony MDR NC-40's (earpiece connection broke after 6-odd yrs)

Headphone Amp Inventory

Schiit Magni
Bravo Audio V2 (one stock, one modified)
(I'm not cheap, I'm frugal.)

Fiio E6 (these are junk IMO)

Source Inventory

Schiit Modi DAC
Pure i-20 iPod DAC (no longer sounds harsh - but I wonder why?)

Cable Inventory

Monoprice RCA cable (this was a mistake)
Auvio RCA cable
Mediabridge USB cable (this is pretty nice)

Other Audio Equipment

iPod shuffle and Nano
Sony DEJ011 Portable CD Player (these are becoming rare)
A JVC home theater system that I want to replace
A pair of speakers I built myself 25 years ago, complete with a passive crossover I designed myself.
My cell phone has a radio in it.
A nice HD radio.

Audio-Related Tweaks

Tubes. Lots of them.

Music Preferences

Mostly the Good Kind.

Interests (non-headphone)

Wait, didn't you already ask me that?

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

I have computers. Too many computers.
