#1 A quick 'hello'

Post by DavidN »

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!

Hi, Have fun :-).
Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.
