|What I do for a living:
||Corporate I.T. stuff.
Audio Technica ATH-W3000ANV (My goto phone for late night listening.)
FAD Piano Forte VIII (New acquisition. I desperately need to update my amp and DAC in order to see what these can do. A little nervous about how fragile the cable looks.)
Grado SR125 (I resurrect these occasionally but for me they are a little bright).
JVC HAS400B (Cheap as chips and sound surprisingly good. A nice change of pace from iem's while on the street.)
Rock It Sounds R-50 (For places and people where the XBA-40s just look too weird.)
Sony XBA-40 (Nice. Lower end oomph that I was missing from the R-50s. Electronica is awesome on these.)
Stax SR-007 Mk1 (Not much use at the moment. The Stax amp is a little under powered for these but I really need to look seriously at getting a better source.)
Thunderpants (These sound fine and look the business.)
Etymotic ER4P (Broken cable so gently resting in its container.)
Yamaha EPH-100 (Left driver gave up the ghost. Sadly missed.)
|Headphone Amp Inventory
||Project Ember. Neat little hybrid amp with DIY roots.
Stax SRM-1/Mk-2 PP
Gone and Forgotten
Meier Audio Corda Aria (headphone amplifier and USB DAC). Although I owned this for years it was barely adequate.
||Super GEEK portable DAC & headphone amp (Kickstarter project - estimated delivery January 2014). This little fellow will support high res formats like DSD & DXD.
GEEK Pulse (indiegogo project - desktop version and due in first quarter of 2014).
GEEK Blue (indiegogo project - add-on to Pulse to stream audio via Bluetooth due in first quarter of 2014).
Valab NOS USB. This is a cheap and soulless DAC. Looking forward for the reviews for the premium Schit DAC for a possible upgrade.
|Other Audio Equipment
||Anthem Integrated 225 SS amplifier
Osborn Eclipse speakers
||Progressive Rock, Chill-out & downtempo electronic styles, chamber music / string quartets, classical guitar, ukulele music, minimalism (e.g. Steve Reich). My music horizons are constantly expanded by my 2 daughters whose tastes range from gangster rap, various forms of house / dj dance styles to eclectic and obscure bands - the more unknown the better.
||I commute daily on a Rocky Mountain bike. I'll never make the tour de France but it is awesome being out and enjoying being a big kid.
