NEC 6AK5W/EF95, 1968, Japan
USSR 6N6P-I, 1986, Russia

The valves I'm using in my headphone/pre amp at the moment. I don't swap the 6N6P-I's around as they handle the power output.

Early Christmas for me. Sort of.

It's the end of October so it's been a year since I bought my CD player and started listening to music through physical media again. When I first bought the player, I think I had around 50 or so releases on CD to listen to. Now, that number sits at 170 and it only continues to grow.

The shift back to physical media has had a really big impact on me. I can honestly say, I get a much better experience listening to music through CDs than just playing it on my PC or phone. It's more enjoyable and it's a great way to fight against major depression.

The player it's self has to be the best purchase I've ever made in terms of audio. It wasn't expensive, has the best audio quality I've ever heard and it has a year left on it's warranty yet it has not given me a single issue since Onkyo have built it like a tank.

Here's to a year of physical media which I really hope never dies off. I really don't want to ever touch this cloud and streaming stuff that is becoming popular. I want something to hold, as if I actually own a copy of the music. Thankfully, I see CD releases increasing within the indie scene, which is how I can get so many of them anyway.

Asura's newest album, Radio Universe, is out now!

The CD version is unfortunately delayed until the 4th of November due to a pressing error but you can still grab the download in a lossless format.

I can honestly say, this is the album of 2014 for me. Asura has taken all the excellence of his former albums, sprinkled in new ideas and successfully made a masterpiece.

Current audio set up, which I really like so far. The DAC Box S USB (left, bottom) is used for PC sound (games, notifications, etc) while the MUSE NOS DAC (right with all the wires sticking out) is for music playback, both from my CD player and PC via coaxial & optical. There's a little passive mixer not shown so I can hear both at the same time.

Looking through the CDs I currently have and what I have on the way, it seems I really have fallen in love with the psychedelia scene and I'm really happy about that. I know only one other person who's as heavy into it as I am, although I wish I knew more. I guess it's just a rare taste.

I do still buy non-psychedelic music but that's mostly from Ultimae Records. I've been keeping a watchful eye on Altar, Suntrip, Zion 604 and DAT recently, with many others watched in my Bandcamp list.

I've already got my CD reserved. I cannot wait for it to be released. :D
