About Me:

Audio-nut/Musician/Chemist

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Making music, reading up on the latest tech, small electronics projects, and cars.

What I do for a living:

I am a chemist working for a CRO in PA, living in NJ.

Headphone Inventory

Senn HD600, iGrado, Grado HF-1, Grado HF-2, A/L iM716, Shure E2, Shure E3, Head-Direct RE1, Head-Direct RE0, Head-Direct RE252

Headphone Amp Inventory

A portable custom-built by ktpg here on Head-Fi that I've had for years, and a Head-Direct EF1 (RCA cleartop 12AU7).

Source Inventory

Echo Indigo, EMU 0404, EMU 0404 USB, iAudio X5L, Sony MZ-S1 (two), Denon DP-790

Cable Inventory

The "nice" cables I have were made by a guy named John jrwicetrk2@att.net. I don't believe cables make a difference in sound quality (unless they're acting as a restriction), but I can appreciate good workmanship and believe that oxidation-resistant gold plating is worth the money.

Other Audio Equipment

Klipsch Forte II, Klipsch B-3, Harman/Kardon 430 twin-powered receiver, Marantz 2220B, some other vintage receivers.

Audio-Related Tweaks

I use flat pads on my HF-1's...call me crazy.

Music Preferences

Classic Rock, Progressive Rock/Metal, Classical, Pipe Organ, Blues (I play blues harmonica), others

Interests (non-headphone)

Playing a lot of music: Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Contrabass clarinet, Alto Sax, Bari Sax, Pipe Organ, Blues Harp.

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

I use a loudbark mic on my blues harp rig, fantastic microphone.
