About Me:

I'm an old divorced guy with a geeky sense of humor.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Head-Fi, good food, drink, stimulating conversation and debate. Can't stand bullies or liars.

What I do for a living:

Professional Computer Geek. Really. Yes I'm old, but that just makes me smarter and better looking.

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)
Monoprice 108323 (Gave to my son - he hates them too - uncomfortable and cheezy)

Razer Carcharias (broke after 6 yrs)
Sony MDR NC-40's (earpiece connection broke after 6-odd yrs)

Headphone Amp Inventory

Schiit Magni
Bravo Audio V2 (x 2)
(I'm not cheap, I'm frugal.)

Fiio E6 (these are junk IMO)

Source Inventory

Schiit Modi DAC
Pure i-20 iPod DAC (using this again, carefully)

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
An ancient Kenwood solid state amp demo unit (circa 1980)
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.
