This is the system I have:
Music Hall MMF 2.2 for Turntable
Ortofon 2M Blue Phono Cartridge
Project SpeedBox 2 for the 33/45 conversion (increases sound quality tremendously)
Speakers: Joseph Audio RML7
Receiver: Yamaha RX-V861
CD/DVD still thinking...the pioneer "elite" BDP-23FD is ok..there are better for this price.

The following user says Thank You to Big Mike for this post:
First choice: Seal. <-- this is my work music. Nothing better to trade or write code to.
Second choice: Mozart piano sonata's, any and all, or Bach, Beethoven, Brahms Mozart piano concerto's
Third choice: My mega mix: Seal, Beatles, Led Zepplin, U2, Prince, Sheyrl Crow, CCR, Eagles, Sinatra, Simon & Garfunkel, AC/DC, Van Halen, PM Dawn
Fourth choice: all other music: pop, rock, rap, big band with a dash of country. <--- this mix drives my wife crazy! One minute your listening to Eminem, lose yourself, then comes John Lennon Imagine, then Strike it up then Sammy Davis Jr! Works for me though!
For the record, I am a bit of a music freak. Currently have 14,000+ songs in my collection.

Trade what the market is doing; NOT what you think its going to do.
If I REALLY need to focus then I might have silence, but occasionally I'll listen to "easy listening" Baroque for background music. Most other music, including Classical, can be too jarring or rhythmic distracting me. Check out Sunday Baroque for a good streaming source.
music is very important for me when trading, it actually helps me keep focused and not lose my sanity being alone. When there is complete silence I tend to get a little absorbed in my own thoughts rather than being positively guided by music.
The music has to be the right type and that usually means no vocals. I enjoy pure instrumentals and something that resonates with my mood
Buckethead is a good candidate
the atmospheric guitar lead and riffs are unparalleled
