Thread: From the sunny Algarve

    Default From the sunny Algarve

    Hi,
    well my username is lesCrooge. That happens to be my surname.
    My first name Edward, my second is Louis.
    I write ebooks under my name Louis lesCrooge.
    20 years ago I was making horn enclosures. My company was called HornUtopia.
    We attended a few HiFi shows in 1999 the biggest of which was the London HiFi show in Novotel, at which noted hornophobe Ken Kessler included our enclosoure, The Cornucopia, in his 100 best of show report.
    Then the wheels came off.
    One of my competitors managed to convince the owner of our driver supplier, Lowther, that our product was rubbish, so she pulled supplies.
    She didn't accept Ken Kessler and Steve Harris' opinions to the contrary.
    So I am now happily divesting myself of my last pair of PM6s but I can't find where to place the ad.
    Someone kindly advise.
    TVM

    Hi Lewis, and welcome. Hope you intend staying here and not just gonna sell n run. Anyways, you will need a few posts for pm function etc to kick in. Sales are in private exhibitions. You require pics, a description and a fixed price.

    A friend of mine loves your neck of woods and wants to retire there if not sooner. Bet its nice weather too.

    Hope you stay and join in
    Regards,
    Grant ....

    Hello Louis. Welcome to AOS.

    I seem to recall the name 'HornUtopia'. It's a shame you could not carry on in the business.

    If you continue to have an interest in Hi-Fi, perhaps you could tell us more. Such as what music you listen to and what equipment you currently use.

    The private sales area is the Private Exhibitions section. It would be nice if you could participate as an active member though, your involvement in speaker design and building would be of interest to members.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I posted all this but it appears to be under M for missing
    Music only good except trad folk
    MUSIC
    2 metres of vinyl, 3 metres of CDs
    FAVES
    Mariachi, Cubano, Latino, Astrid Gilberto, Sinatra, Dylan, Zappa, JJ Cale, Allmans, Joe Croaker, Mike Bloomfield, Peter Green, Cooder, Taj Mahal, Rory, Steve Winwood, early Stones, Lovin Spoonful, Paul Simon, Miles, Getz, Hot Club, I sing the body electric-side 2, Dire Straights, Free, Kinks, AWB, George Harrison, Santana, Little Feat, Steve Miller, The Cap'n, The Doobs, CCR, Desmond Decker, Jimmy Cliff, Schubert, Satie, Prokofiev, Chopin, Yehudi
    SYSTEM
    Audio Innovation S300 - bought for the valves only, but it works, meanwhile my Rogers Cadet stereo power amp + Quad44 languish below decks.
    (If anyone wants the S300 sans valves they can have it plus £50 p&p - proper packing)
    Harmann Kardon+Rabco parallel tracking with Technics 205Mkiii cartridge.
    Also some kind of Thorens cant remember the number but it's not a 124 - the ex-bitch got given that but she nicked a lot of choice LPs as well. Cheap at the price
    My NUC box + assorted headphones.
