I’ve been an audiophile for the last 18 years or so.  My audio philosophy is that all good things come from very high detail in reproduced music.  I like to use solid state for my amplification, and all the good things that come from that such as dynamics and low distortion.  For pre-amplification I use tubed preamplifier and phono stage.  My listening is 80% analogue, and 20% digital.  Since I finally have a decent digital front end in AURALiC, I am starting to spend more and more time with digital.  I listen to Jazz and Classical music, with a small amount of Rock, Folk and World music…
