    Sorbothane duro70 treated HiFiMAN HE-400 headphones thanks to Richard51 and a large ferrite clamp on my cables from the external power supplies. I hate RF which is a problem many audiophiles discount especially is these days of WI-Fi, Bluetooth, swtching power supplies, digital clocks, Tv's, and especially computers, The list goes on and on... Our enviorment is polluted with Radio Frequency Interference and electromagnetic induction(EMI) Also indespensible is my Ayre Acoustics IBE CD. The best $20 you'll ever spend.(Got mine for free) Check out Ayre Acoustic's website. They also make outstanding high-end gear way out of my price range.

    Rock, classical, and Alternative Country-Steve Earle, My Morning Jacket, Lucinda Williams. Son Volt and the band who started it all-Uncle Tupelo. Rock-Pink Floyd, Foo Fighters, Eric Clapton, Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree, Frank Zappa, Smashing Pumpkins, Talking Heads, Steely Dan, Jesca Hoop, man I could go on and on.
    Gear-Fi:
    Just my modeling setup plus I constantly raid the local library for CD's to check out and rip onto my laptops hard drive. My library is networked with 20 other libraries so I can get a lot of music that way.
