    Default Hello from the highlands

    Ronnie here and good to be aboard

    I have been into hi fi for many years but have not paid to much attention to my system for some years so I'll be needing advice on an upgrade!

    I have a system deck with a link basic arm and an old ortofon cartridge, a naim nait amp, arcam 7se cd and matching tuner and a lovely old pair of morduant short festivals
