I dabble in audio.

Don't take anything I say as gospel, I don't add nearly enough snake oil to my hifi recipes :-)


Wouter's page : Audio and stuff

First and foremost, I'm an engineer. I started out building amplifiers and stuff, listening to loud Rock and Heavy Metal, and from there grew into Jazz (not that big a leap, since my father was a great Jazz fan), Classical and Opera. I tend to like the stuff that sound good, with an interesting rhythm. I'm not so much into traditional Jazz or Fusion, but more into Swing and Big Band. I also really don't like dramatic sopranos.

Current earwork, Mafikizolo's Love Potion. And here's the best brass player in the world.

System

Thorens TD-160 turntable, Shure ME75EJ. Cash Converters, late nineties, R35.

NAD 1130 Stereo Preamplifier.

Harman / Kardon HD720 CD player.

Re-capping

The seventies and eighties was a bad time for electrolytic capacitors. They get old. Equipment starts acting funny when that happens. Replacing all the capacitors with new (105C) units just makes things better.
