Howdy folks!!
« on: December 28, 2018, 06:10:11 PM »
Howdy folks,

First time here so I thought I'd stop by and say hi. Was encouraged to join this forum by a gentleman known as Tom.
Have been into audio since I was about 6 years old. As the years went by I got more and more into it. I have a small collection of things which are mostly vintage. I do have a soft spot for British equipment.

Version 2.0 Garbage is playing on a Marantz 2250B and Cerwin Vega D3 as I type this. Nothing too special but they are brands I find nostalgic.
These days I tend to collect and hoard gear if anything. I've recently found the more involved I get in the hobby. I meet more folks who share the love of audio and music. I have learned a lot of things through the years. But there are many things I still don't know or understand.

But perhaps the most important thing I've learned and enjoyed is the camaraderie in the hobby.

Very happy to be here. I feel very honored :)

Sincerely,
Brian

Yeah, this is my local home and that is my national home.   I just recently picked up a pair of D3s at the thrift but haven't refoamed them yet so I can't comment on the sound.   So many projects, so little time.

My avatar was originally created to be the "record label logo" for some nedledrops and restorations I had shared on line before the Blue Meanies drove that kind of thing so far underground.
