The regular ODAC
Technics SL-7 turntable -> Grado Gold1 t4p cartridge -> Little Bear T8 SS discrete MM/MC preamp [back to vinyl :( ]
Aiwa AD-F770 - because vinyl isn't stupid enough. but no really, cassettes do sound nice..
Yulong D100 (ODAC+O2 either beat it in SQ or are at least equivalent)
Technics SL-1210MK2 > Shure m97xe > Angle Audio phonostage — I eventually found vinyl too much of a pain in the arse.
Zero DAC 09 LT1364 + 2x LM4562
I don't believe in cables. Anything beyond the scientific/physical properties like capacitance, resistance and inductance is snake oil/Imagination/BS/Someone's profitable business.
The Doors, Alina Orlova, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, White Stripes, Simon & Garfunkel, Nouvelle Vague...wherever Spotify takes me. Psychedelic/sung poetry/dreamy slow music
