    I try to put in an honest day's work for an honest day's pay.
    I like New Stuff.
    I like going out to eat with my kids at every restaurant known to mankind.
    Headphone Inventory:
    Grado SR80e (wow, and I mean, wow)
    Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (250)
    Sony MDR 7506 w/Beyer earpad mod (Grado's kick these in the teeth)
    Audio Technica ATH M40FS (Seems to need extended break-in to be listenable)
    Koss KSC75 clip ons (amazing for $15 bucks, great for workouts)

    Monoprice 108323 (Ear piece broke after < 1 yr of use, head band uncomfortable - don't buy these)
    Razer Carcharias (broke after 6 yrs, nice while they lasted)
    Sony MDR NC-40's (earpiece connection broke after 6-odd yrs)
    Superlux HD 681 (broke after < 6 months of use, junk)
    Headphone Amp Inventory:
    Schiit Magni
    Bravo Audio V2 (one stock, one modified)
    (I'm not cheap, I'm frugal.)

    Fiio E6 (these are junk IMO)
    Source Inventory:
    Schiit Modi DAC
    Pure i-20 iPod DAC (no longer sounds harsh - but I wonder why?)
    Cable Inventory:
    Monoprice RCA cable (this was a mistake)
    Auvio RCA cable
    Mediabridge USB cable (this is pretty nice)
    Other Audio Equipment:
    iPod shuffle (my Nano finally broke)
    Sandisk Clip for bike riding
    A growing inventory of Bluetooth speakers
    Sony DEJ011 Portable CD Player (these are becoming rare)
    A JVC home theater system that I want to replace
    A pair of speakers I built myself 25 years ago, complete with a passive crossover I designed myself.
    My cell phone has a radio in it.
    A nice Boston Acoustics HD radio with a flaky on-off volume knob, that I can't fix. Sounds great when I can get it to turn on.
    Audio-Related Tweaks:
    Does Tinnitus count?
    Music Preferences:
    Fusion Jazz, Alt Rock, A Capella.
    Former musician, enjoy almost any genre sans Rap, etc.
    I have computers. Too many computers.
    Trying to make a difference in the world since the 70's.
