    2X 20" Apple Cinema Displays (DVI: 1680X1050) - Twelve(!) years old, still going strong.
    Mitsubishi HD-6800 1080p Projector (HDMI 30,000:1 CR) - 100" Screen
    Cable Inventory:
    Zu Mission at the moment
    Monoprice Premium HDMI: 25ft and 15ft - GREAT cables

    Power-Related Components:

    Ear cleaning. Think about it...
    Other Audio Equipment:

    DeOxit/ProGold
    VPI 16.5 - Super loud
    Audio-Related Tweaks:
    Poor logic and occasionally taking my Writing (BS) degree off the wall and staring at it, longingly...
    Music Preferences:
    Even awful music is great if it invokes a memory. Baby Krea and D.R.A.M are fun wastes of space and voltage.

    Also, try BeaTunes for OSX (I refuse to write "macOS") sometime; it's a great utility for people who love music, and data. Audirvana is super dope, too.
    Gear-Fi:
    Omega and Tockr watche

    10.5.9 Leopard was the last great Mac operating system. 10.6.8 is okay...
    The sound of a Dual/Quad G5 Power Mac will always bring a smile to my face, and a warm front to my room.
