    Thanks for the welcoming words. Thanks for the invite Lurch, sadly the apple crumble I'm digging into right now could be the closest thing to a bake off I'll be making for a while....but one day !

    Newbie Intro's

    Hi, I've been a member for a while, but never introduced myself...apologise for that ! I've been more of a reader than a writer, and have used the site mainly as a resource for sensible advice, although I have bought & sold a couple of things. Anyway, it's a great site, which I've spent far too many hours on, losing myself in audio daydreams. From mid 80's to mid 90's, I was heavily into my hifi, be it on a very limited budget. I was an avid reader of all the hifi mags, much to my partner at the times puzzled dismay. However, mid 90's I lost interest somewhat, sold my gear, bought a mini system....blah, blah, blah. Anyway in the last 5yrs, I've been trying to assemble a decent system once again... the vinyl was calling me ! Depressingly this still had to be accomplished on a very limited budget. I've bought all my bits 2nd hand, starting with a project 1.2, Arcam A85, & focal 905's. I spent many hours on here, looking for advice, and relearning the dark arts of vinyl replay. I'm banished to the attic so the room dictates the kit somewhat. It became clear, after a few years that I'd have to up the budget a bit to get what I wanted. I've since been slowly swapping & adding bits & pieces until, now I feel I'm pretty much where I want, & can afford to be. My latest purchase; a pair of Opera Callas gold speakers, seem to have been the final piece in the jigsaw. I finally feel I can rest where I am, I'm now listening to the music, not constantly picking at the presentation. Obviously you should never say never, but right now...I'm happy. Thanks all for making this site what it is ! Si
