What I do for a living:

Source Inventory

Music room: Schitt Bifrost Multibit hoovers up the bits from Macbook Air/Amarra (USB), Onkyo CD transport (coax), & Airplay (optical). Goes to main stereo preamp/amp/speakers/subwoofer, and Valhalla2.

Other Audio Equipment

Amps and speakers

Audio-Related Tweaks

3rd rear "ambient" speaker in main 2 channel system, a la Hafler and Brian Eno. Driven by the 2 POSITIVE speaker amp output terminals, to extract the difference signal. Subtle, but when you disconnect it you miss it.

Music Preferences

Rock and classical and blues and rock and soul and rock and hip-hop and indie and punk and rock and trip-hop and rock and r'n'b and freak and metal and folk and psychedelic rock and jazz and rock and funk and chamber and dance and ragas and piano sonatas and string quartets and space and dub and country and rock. No bluegrass. If I had a single bullet? Can't decide whether to use it on Billy Joel or the Eagles. Or Rush. Dang I need a full magazine.
