||I am a lover of music and books.
|Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):
||i search for the max quality sound for less than one thousand dollars for each piece of the chain
Fostex th 7-b ( for the price, 60 dollars in canada, i think that this headphone is marvellous)
Hifiman he-400 ( famous reputation for the ratio quality/price)
Audiotechnica ath-m50 ( very good bass )
|Headphone Amp Inventory
Ember project ( very good and very versatile, each tube is a new universe of sound) surprisingly high ratio quality/price/flexibility
Aune t1 tube dac/amp ( good synergy pairing with the ath m50 and the fostex, not with the He 400 for my ears)
Pa2v2 ( i dont use it now, but for the price interesting deal )
Bravo ocean tube amp ( good synergy with the He 400 and with the AKG 701)
Beresford Bushmaster mkII with Ankaka Battery charger ( a pure marvel for the price)
Hifimediy asynchronus usb Sabre DAC ( 57 dollars and i am sure one of the best dac less than 200 hundred dollars, and an optic converter, all in one)
+ hifimediy usb isolator (that make in the chain an audible difference to my ears)
Aune t1 tube dac/amp. ( bad synergy with Hifiman He 400)
||Morrow ma 1 interconnect rca cable ( quality/ price ratio extraordinary, and my most important discovery in audio) + Morrow Ma3 and this upgrade with the ma3 make a big difference...
|Other Audio Equipment
||Swan m10 2.1 multimedia speakers ( quality/ price ratio impossible to exceed, it cost me one dollar on ebay and the retail price is around 125 dollars) the sound is very musical, and if you are on a tight budget dont kill yourself buy it....You will smile ...( i pair the Swans internal amp with the Ember pre-amp with high gain and high resistance output setttings function and its make all the difference )
Sorbothane feet are miraculous product for vibrations...They produced more clear bass and image...
||classical, world and jazz...
