• My Audio Gear

    Good reviewers shouldn't just have good gear, they should also have relatable gear. If you see or hear otherwise, I'd caution you to reconsider. While my gear list isn't as extensive of what's in The Spirited Uncle M's Sound Lab, the gear I do have serves specific purposes. Here's what I'm currently running in my listening room, at work, and elsewhere, for personal and review purposes.
