My first post.
My audio interests are a continuing journey. A lot of my work has been DIY both for the challenge and enjoyment of making things, and also out of financial necessity. Although, over the years I probably would have come out ahead if I simply bought the real items in the first place.
My DIY interests have brought me into new fields of interest, machining, woodworking, electronics. I've learned just enough to get into trouble. I wish I knew more about electronics in particular so that I could actually understand and troubleshoot designs, rather than to sometimes copy and hope for the best.
I love turntables and vinyl, both the mechanics and sound, although my interest in digital has been growing as I feel CD's at this point are much improved and a real deal to collect as they are now obsolete.
I prefer to mess around with simple solid state, rather then tubes, chipamps and opamps.
I'm getting more interested in speaker making.
This forum is a wonderful resource.
