My current iPod dock is a 3.5mm stereo headphone cable that breaks out RCA to phono, then feeds into a BBE Sonic Maximzer 322, then out to a Sonic Impact Super T Amp, then from there into a pair of Omega speakers I custom ordered from Louis around 6 years ago.
Sometimes I swap out the Super T Amp for an Almarro 318A glass amp, although the STA sounds 99% as good and doesn't eat $erious bucks in re-tubing on a regular basis.
Nothing here specifically reflects on someone unless I call them out by name. Instead, it is just a collection of stuff I think is funny, or find interesting. If you are offended, that is about you and not about me.
