Long time listener, first time caller.
« on: April 13, 2017, 10:42:22 PM »
Hi all, been poking around the board for awhile. Lots of good info and good people it seems.  Finally decided to make myself an account. I've been playing around with audio gear since before I can remember. Just recently got into messing around with tubes, built myself a single stage tube preamp about a month ago. I've really enjoyed getting back into the hobby after a few years away from it. Hope to learn some thing from this community as well as lend a hand if anyone needs it!

Well I can say I don't have anything against McIntosh, but my user name is actually my initials (real original I know lol), but I've never actually put my ears to any mcintosh gear. The 9303 is from my near and dear magnavox console pull, I'll post some pics of the mods and prettying up I've done to it soon. As far as music goes, I like damn near anything other than "pop country", but I must say I'm a metal/rock guy at heart. Though I do have a special place in my heart for a good acoustic guitar piece.  I'll also add that I like to repair vintage gear and build custom speakers as well, it's my own form of relaxing therapy. Nothing better to me than sitting down with a soldering iron and a few meters!
