About Me:

I am here :-) Not much to add with a 100 char limit :-/

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Music, technology, life, art, nature, cycling, hiking, classic cars, photography, everything.

What I do for a living:

I.T (Large scale, Unix, storage, networks)

Headphone Inventory

Soundmagic E30 IEMs - Looking to upgrade to VSONIC R07 GR07 (when I can find some).

Headphone Amp Inventory

Fiio E07K (Andes)
Fiiio E09K (bought this for the volume knob :-) )
Little Dot 1+ currently w/ Mullard M8161 / CV4016 tubes and MUSES 02 op-amp.

Source Inventory

Fiio X3 ( I wish it would dock with the E09K, like the Andes does).
Sansa Clip+ 8GB (My first DAP)
Laptop w/ iRiver.

Cable Inventory

Nothing special yet. Research needed, as there is a lot of "snake oil" in the cable market.

Power-Related Components

Mains filter

Audio-Related Tweaks

Modded Grado SR80i : Vented diaphragm (4-holes), removed plastic grille and button with wire mesh grille, damped chambers with adhesive felt. Same treatment on SR325 except griille mod.

Some tube and op-amp rolling on LD1+ amp. Vbe mod adding 2 more capacitors to eliminate transients at around 10KHz.

Music Preferences

Really, a but of everything if it is well played and recorded.
