About Me:

Born in 1978; have been into technical hobbies since childhood.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Photography, amateur radio, listening to music, reading, geeking out by my electronics workbench...

What I do for a living:

Working in engineering/R&D for a manufacturer of subsea handling equipment.

Headphone Inventory

AKG K240 (early nineties vintage)
AKG K450 for while on the go.
Audeze LCD-X.

Headphone Amp Inventory

Benchmark DAC2 HGC
Nuforce uDAC-2 to keep the K450 company while traveling.

Source Inventory

Nothing fancy:
-A mid-nineties Marantz CD67 mkII CD player
-Cambridge Audio BD650 for SACD/DVD-A
-iMac
-Denon TU-1500RD AM/FM tuner
-Linn LP12 ('04; no upgrades)
-DIY RIAA stage

Cable Inventory

I have done enough work on matching transmission lines to not bother too much about the properties of the (for all intents and purposes) DC cables utilised in hi-fi.

Power-Related Components

Wall outlet.

Other Audio Equipment

Densen Beat B-100 integrated amp; System Audio Exact speakers and Velodyne CHT-12Q 12" subwoofer.
Sony PCM-M1 and Tascam DA-P1 DAT recorders; pair of Neumann KM184 mics; DIY phantom power when using the KM184s with the PCM-M1.

Music Preferences

Just about anything involving real instruments; rock, jazz, blues, pop, industrial, classical... I probably spend most time listening to the Einstürzende Neubauten, Neil Young, Tom Waits, The Pixies, Coltrane, Sibelius, Trembling Bells, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, the list goes on and on...

Interests (non-headphone)

Photography (I spend lots of time shooting, both film and digital), reading, ham radio, politics (Card-carrying member of the Norwegian Liberal Party (The Liberals; NOT the Progress Party, for those familiar with Norwegian politics.))

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

My cameras! Both digital and analog, I love photography as a creative outlet. A couple of Nikon SLRs (D3; FM2n; FM3a; F4; F5; more optics than I care think about, amassed over the past 23 years.), a Leica M4 and a Zeiss Ikon ZM with 35&50mm Summicrons, 90 Tele-Elmarit, Fujica G690BL 6*9 ('Texas-Leica') with 65 (f/5.6), 100 and 180mm lenses.
