About Me:

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):


What I do for a living:

bridge between corporate people and project team

Headphone Inventory

FAD Pandora Hope VI : why the Japanese put a locking mechanism on the detachable cable? Anyway, sold it after a month

Hifiman HE-500 : why woman cannot stand the sound leaked from it, it was designed like that

Shure SE535LTD RED : anything wrong with a guy wearing red? next time I get a red custom cable for it

Yamaha EPH-100 : where I put it?

few old earphones from Sony Walkman : miss those college days

Headphone Amp Inventory

Topping TP22 : takes it balanced output (via speaker taps) for HE-500, but input is still singled end...

iBasso PB2 : Hirose connector termination is such a pain

Maverick D1 : takes its tube-out for home Hi Fi, may be give it a new housing and add TA2024 pcb on it.

Topping TP60 : hmmmmmm

Source Inventory

iBasso DX50 : hates it with no optical out, hates it with no AK like leather case

iBasso DB2 : hopefully can find L shape Hirose connector to replace the straight connector

Matrix Mini-i Pro

Cable Inventory

any good cable will do, regardless pure silver, spc, occ, ofc, single core, 7 strands, 19 strands bla bla bla. I don't have golden ear but I definitely got wooden ear

Power-Related Components

cheap power conditioner

Other Audio Equipment

Yamaha CD-N500 : takes it ability to play hi-res audio file and internet radio
Yamaha A-S700 : you do need an amp to drive speaker
Audio Space Houston Mini 1998 SE
KEF Q300 : if no speaker then no point to get player and amp
X-LS Encore : cheaper but better than KEF
PSB Alpha LR1 : free out from R.I.P. Z5500
Logitech Z5500 : R.I.P. together with PS3

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

Canon 'L' lens, I changed DSLR but keep the L lens
Fujifilm X100s - those add-on accessories almost the price of the body. Sellers taking advantage of its retro look?
