Hi all my name is Dan Reardon as my username states, not very imaginative but it works. Live in North Hills of Pgh. Glenshaw to be exact. Love audio mostly speakers but I dabble in electronics as well. Started with a Heathkit at 8 or 9 and now retired and finally have time to tinker.

Hey Dan

Welcome aboard.   Good to see you here.  Lots of good folks on this forum.  Your knowledge will be useful.

Guys, Dan is being extremely modest, unless your idea of 'tinkering' is entirely recapping a piece just for fun!

See you this week after those fuses come in.

I listen to a wide variety of music: Classic Rock (emphasis on Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler, Dylan etal), I also really like female vocalists (Jasmine Thompson, Paula Cole Eva Cassidy and others). I listen to many other genres as well Classical and Opera are perhaps least listened to. My music enjoyment is best summarized as this similar to wine, I can not always tell you what I like but if I hear it I know very quickly if I like it.

Welcome Dan. Did you happen to mean Tektons? If so, which model? I've got a pair of Lores which I can't see ever giving up.

Yes Tekton Lore is what I have very efficientI like them alot but my KEF 103.2 seem to be more articulate certainly not as dynamic though.
