I’m hesitant to embrace new technology especially when it comes to audio products. My turntable is still frequently used and I think of my vinyl record album collection as somehow sacred. Years ago I tried to become a true hi-fi snob but thought most of the widgets and gizmos touted by so called audiophiles were overpriced frivolities that missed the basic point of just relaxing and enjoying the music.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
