Hey everyone , I've loved both music and audio gear for quite a long time, so I think I'll fit right in at SBAF! My interests as far as audio/music go include: Music that shows a clear passion for craft, in any genre. Bonus points if it's well-produced/there's something notable about the sound itself. I especially love jazz, progressive rock, and most electronic music. I'm always on the lookout for new music. My latest obsession has been deep- diving on Japanese City Pop; especially the artists that were seemingly inspired by Steely Dan in the 80s. Getting the highest performance I can out of relatively modest audio gear. My go-to gear at the moment: For listening on Mac, a Sennheiser HD 6XX with an OriGen G2 DAC (love its form factor, controls, and the fact that it's bus-powered), using DMGAudio EQuick via Rogue Amoeba SoundSource for system-wide EQ. For mobile, I currently bounce between the following: HiBy R3 Pro, SanDisk Clip Zip with Rockbox, and a modded iPod Classic 7th gen. I tend to prefer a v-shaped sound signature, so my current favorite-price-to-performance-ratio IEMs are the CCA C10, [MMCX-modded] Sony MH-755 and Sony XBA-H3. To me they're proof that price is not correlated to performance, since I've tried much fancier IEMs and still love these the most.
