Don't take anything I say as gospel, I don't add nearly enough snake oil to my hifi recipes :-)
First and foremost, I'm an engineer. I started out building amplifiers and things, listening to loud Rock and Heavy Metal, and from there grew into Jazz (not that big a leap, since my father's 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.
You can have a look at my system, which of course changes every now and then, go and see what music I like listening to, read what I have to say about the old-fashioned vinyl records, or check out my speaker DIY and everything else DIY pages.
At the moment my system is somewhat disassembled (I haven't played a record for two years, and I'm feeling the strain :-). I want to built a TNT FleXy so that I can set the system up again.
Capacitors get old. Equipment starts acting funny when that happens. Replacing all the capacitors with new (105C) units just makes things better.
