I have mixed feelings about his "workspace". At least he has some room treatment.

 I just couldn't watch the whole thing. I'm stumped by what I saw. I have had crappy listening environments before, yet, non as small and cluttered as this. I shake my head. Obviously, his wife has locked him downstairs, and he has made the best of it.

Too much disorder in his house! I couldn't live like that.
But then again I have all of the screws in my light switches and outlets orientated the same way. I might be a little OCD.

I am very intrigued with his suspended isolation system that he had his table on. That was very cool.

It actually works quite well. Having had a similar situation in the past, the solution is near-field listening. There are a lot of similarities between near-field listening and headphones (which work almost anywhere).

He has some serious $$$ sunk into that kit though ... when he can find it LOL ;D

Yikes! For a moment I thought I was watching an episode of Hoarders on A&E.
Seeing that mess for more than a few minutes I started to develop an itchy rash.

Really, if all you had to work with was THAT room, then why wouldn't you be into phones? One of the ultimate experiences would be coming directly from the *balanced* phono amp, into the *balanced* phone amp, and then into *balanced* phones. I mean a phono cartridge is already a balanced design to start with. Go ahead, you got money. Spend a few grand on phones, and much more on the rest, and hey, your on top.
