Full Disclosure: This list combines equipment I’ve purchased at retail cost, equipment I’ve purchased on industry accommodation, equipment I’ve been gifted, and equipment I hold on long-term loan. I do not currently contribute editorial content to any audiophile publications but I feel that it is important to make this clear for inquiring minds. :)
