    Talking A virgin on the forum: a bit shy to show off....

    Hi Everybody. My name is Paul and, as you can probably guess, my nickname is Bokito. Just today I celebrated my 59th birthday. I call myself a vinyl junkie. As a born Dutchman it is possible that my English grammar isn't allways correct. My addiction started at the age of 8. I have allways read a lot of forums, but it is the first time that I become an active member. My compliments for the civilized and friendly way your members treat each other. That makes a big difference in comparing to other forums. In fifty years of addiction I've build a record collection of approx. 10.000 records and 3.500 cd's. My taste of music is very wide: from A(BBA) to Z(Z Top). I am no 'hard core' vinyl fan, although I love to spin 45rpm records.
    I've heared some real nice digital music also. Being lucky to have also a second home, I have 2 systems.
    My main system exists among others of: Garrard 401/SME 3012/Denon 100 (103 jubilee)/Syltech Compass Lake/Audio Research Ref3 & CD7/Jadis PL7 phono/Jadis JA 80/Pass Labs 600.5/Cardas Golden Reference/Apogee Full Range. One of the reasons that I became a member of AoS is that I am building a HMT system for my second home. I have read on the forum some good stories about the MS Audio / Klotz MC5000. My HMT exists now of a 20 year old Denon AVR-1AD which can only be adressed for analog 5.1/Ixos i.c./Cambridge CXU/KEF 205/Aktiv cables/Mediaplayer V9 and a 4TB harddisk. I like to create the best possible (digital) sound for as less money. Therefore I appreciate advice about interlinks and cables.

    Hello Paul. Welcome to AOS.

    I'm sure you'll get plenty of opinion on cables here. I'd suggest starting a thread in the Artist's Palette section and asking your questions there.

    Take a look around the site, you'll find there's plenty going on and please feel free to join in. The members are friendly.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.

    Hi Paul and welcome! Don't worry about your English, it's a hell of a lot better than my Dutch!
