Vsonic GR-07 Classic - daily use IEMs

Headphone Amp Inventory

Oppo HA-1 - my current and favorite
Meier Corda Jazz - for my computer audio, very nice little amp
Headroom Maxed out Home - one of the very first reference quality headphone amps, used for 15 years
Wheatfield HA-2 - excellent tube SET OTL amp, just not my cup of tea

Adcom 5800 - 25 years old, still like new, sweet yet neutral and powerful, love this amp
Home-built ladder stepped attenuator - designed & built, used for years, then sold
Home-built DACT CT-100 - built from a kit, the best phono amp in existence? Maybe. Still use occasionally for all the LPs

Behringer DEQ 24-96 - high quality digital EQ, the power of the dark side
Tascam SS-R1 - digital recorder
Rode NT-1A microphones - 1" cardiods, clean, fast, wide bandwidth
