Been told to say hi
« on: February 10, 2013, 12:26:03 PM »
Hey everyone!

I'm a semi-recent Pitt grad working in the Pittsburgh area.  I became hooked to high end audio when I inherited my mother's pair of ADS speakers.  Recently I began my foray into building speakers.  It was awesome and I'll definitely continue to build my own sets.

Welcome to the forum!  Not familiar with ADS speakers but I am sure they sound great!  I'll try not to pick a fight with you for graduating from PITT!  :P  I figure I would be grossly outnumbered.  Take some pictures of your system.  I would love to see it.

Word homie.
I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.
