Hi. I'm new to SBAF and pretty new to the world of audio equipment. That said, I am not new to music. I have been a composer for most of my life, just graduated college with a degree in music, and do some electronic music production on the side. Since I just graduated, I lack the funds to break into the world of true hi-fi audio, so I've mostly been exploring various not-so-expensive options and older gear that's come down in price since its time. Right now I'm using a few AKGs (K553 for production, K712 / K400 for listening) running off JDS Atom / Topping D10. I enjoy audio gear sort of more as works of engineering and art than for practical purposes, and I'm looking forward to getting more into it. My music taste run into pretty much every genre, but I especially have a soft spot for classical, ambient, post-rock, J-pop, and various other experimental genres. As for other hobbies, I love roller coasters and enjoy bowling. I will probably not post anything for quite a while, but I'm looking forward to being around.
