Confessions of a DigiPhile I

I love music - both immersing myself and loosing track of time and also as a sound-scape to my everyday life.
I think of myself as a hard core puritan analogue audiophile.
Well, that is until recent!
DigiPhile would be a better description now.
My youth was spent creating music and other art as well as enjoying concerts and my ever evolving stereo system.
Cassette -> 2 track -> consumer record player -> audiophile-ish record player (Thorens TD 321, Mørch UP-4 arm, Ortofon MC2000 pickup, Ortofon T2000 step-up).
I hit the point of diminishing return of further investment and concentrated on enjoying the music.
CD's crept in some 10 years ago, but the sound never could compete with my analogue rig.
Then I discovered that my iPhone could play CD quality, and suddenly my entire CD collection found it's way to iTunes on my MAC.
iTunes spontaneously started to feed my rig wirelessly through the AirPort.
I hardly did anything, it just sort of crept in.
A year ago I had to face that I too had slipped into digital music.
32 weeks ago I found CA and decided to GO ALL INN.
This blog is going to tell my DigiPhile story.
I am a Technology Strategist, so I'll use my abilities to GO ALL INN to get the best in my spending range from the get go.
NO half measures
NO gradual upgrades
NO tweaking of hardware
My analogue rig has been up to par for 20 years.
I'll aim for the same with my DigiPhile rig.
Stay tuned: T minus 5, all systems are GO!
