A quick 'hello'

Post by DavidN » Fri Feb 07, 2020 11:27 pm

It's getting late in the evening, but I'm glad to have found this forum, so an intro is time well spent...

I'm David from North Wales, with a career in IT. As an antidote to the new technologies, my own interests go the opposite way: film photography and analogue audio.

My mainstay system over decades has been a Rega Planar 2, with Sugden A48II driving Linn Index speakers. Just lately I bought a Chinese valve amp kit: A Boyuu A9 with single-ended EL34 outputs. I've enjoyed putting it together, making a few tweaks, and now enjoying the music.... and it's crystallised my desire to burn my fingers and make electronic stuff. I managed to snag a beat-up early 60s stereogram on Ebay, so I now have a couple of ECL86s with appropriate ironwork to play with.

So, I'll probably be a 'consumer' of the gems on here for a while, but hope one day to contribute something useful!

Cheers

David

Not another IT/IS person!
I can do it right or I can do it now, but I can't do it right now.
