  • About

    Gender:
    Male
    Location:
    Saint Paul, Minnesota
    Occupation:
    Professor
    Interests:
    Hockey, woodworking, music (in that order) and cheesy movies like Super Troopers (hence strooper).
    Headphone Inventory:
    What I own now:
    MrSpeakers Alpha Prime
    Audeze EL-8 Open
    Fostex TH-X00
    Audio Technica ATH-ESW990H
    Shure SE215

    3/4 bought on head-fi.

    -----------------------------------------------
    Others I've owned:
    Beyerdynamic T90
    Audio Technica ATH-W5000
    Phillips Fidelio L1
    Shure SE 425
    Shure SE 846
    Campfire Audio Jupiter
    Campfire Audio Dorado
    Oriveti New Primacy
    RHA MA 750i
    A pair of Sennheisers bought in 1985 that were stolen in the early 90s--don't remember the name/number, but damn I loved them.

    All but one sold on head-fi.
    Source Inventory:
    Resonessence Concero HP
    Audeze Deckard
    Onkyo DP-X1A
    Audirvana Plus on a Mac Mini with 4TB raid drive (which is 120 GB short of filled)
    Cable Inventory:
    It took me awhile, but I've learned that MY money is best spent on better headphones, better sources and more music, not cables. I'll pay to get balanced cables, a better length, and/or less microphonics, but not for super special secret formula metals or 2^n (with n >= 3) braids. If other people hear improvements that justify the cost, I'm happy for them. I don't and would much rather buy music with the difference in $$$.
    Other Audio Equipment:
    Wonderfully "broken in" early Rotel amp, Thorens turntable and floor-demo ADS speakers purchased with money earned mowing lawns, bagging groceries, mopping floors and selling plasma--lots of plasma. All approaching years old and still going strong (several drive belt and needle replacements notwithstanding).
    Music Preferences:
    Things my kids will discover in 20 years.
    Gear-Fi:
    Festool woodworking equipment. The audiophile of wood.
    Like all of us, I'm looking to get the best sound I can afford. I feel like I'm getting pretty close, but wish I'd avoided a couple of dead ends and bad decisions along the way.
