Album of the week: John Mayer Paradise Valley

I love this album. It has such a chill vibe. And the audio mix is awesome. This album must be heard on a good pair of headphones to truly appreciate how well the audio mix truly is. You can literally hear every instrument being played in all the songs of this album.

Sony WH-1000XM4

The new award winning headphone from Sony couldn’t come at a better time. Released in August 2020, I was one of the first few to own the Sony WH-1000XM4 when it was officially released.

My humble turntable set up

Up at last. It’s a great start. The speakers is perfect for my small room, and the space fits both the turntable and the speakers.
