HiFi Trade?

The number of like's you got must have taken a lot of praiseworthy comments...wa-wa-we-wa!
I think I should add that because my knowledge of Hi Fi is very limited, certainly when compared to some of our more experienced contributors, I tend to haunt the less technical threads, usually in the Public Bar and music forums.
But I don't let that stop me posting if I do feel I have something to contribute. I'm glad to say that this is a friendly forum and, if I've ever been mistaken, I've never been shot down in flames or had the metaphorical seven shades of p*** taken out of me. Thanks lads!

Hi all, archetypal grumpy old man here.
Used my Uni grant to get my first system back in '76 ( and hence got my first job behind a bar). I will now bore you all by telling you how much better it was in my day, good music ended with the 90's, etc.etc..

Welcome, you'll fit right in here with all the other grumpy old men ;)
For me, the eighties is when music went downhill. As ever this is a personal opinion and there'll be many who disagree.

Post your system details in the "What's your bits and bobs" thread and that'll help should you have any queries.

Hi, and welcome Martin, plenty of grumpy old buggers here. Well, I know I'm getting more like my hero (Victor Meldrew) everyday.

I though Victor was modelled on you, John? 😆

Welcome, Andy. Get stuck in - we don't bite (much). New viewpoints always welcomed!

Afternoon all, although I'm apparently 'new' I'm actually a returner, having been on the community up until about 7 or 8 years ago, then dormants since, lost in the multi-channel AV abyss. Anyway, I'm back to 2 channel and glad to be back. I was hoping 2-channel life would be simpler, but surprise surprise, it's not the case...
Looking forward to reading everyone's thoughts on a wide range of subjects, and getting sage advice when needed. Thanks!!

Hi, I guess I'm a youngster by usual hifi standards, I used to work in the trade a few years ago, not in sales, I was behind the scenes. But meant I was introduced to HiFi and got some great deals on kit.
Hey Jake, Welcome. It's always nice to have someone new with different points of view and experiences.
