    Default Hello from North East England

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Craig, I have possibly reached a stage where my hifi actually suits me, which hasn't happened for several decades. So I'm hoping that future upgrades will be along the lines of interconnect, cartridges and perhaps the odd internal component upgrade in my amps.
    The setup that has led to this level of contentment is as follows:
    Acoustic Signature Mambo turntable, Origin Live Conqueror arm, Benz lp cartridge
    EAR MC4 SUT, Audio NOte M3 phono, and Audio Innovations second audios with BP (original ) PSUs.
    Audio Note E lx he speakers.

    I listen mainly to rock music.

    I was prompted to join here after seeing Montesquieu's ad for an AN turntable lead. I used to be a regular on hifi wigwam, but lost interest after the 'improved' the for sale area some years ago, so looking forward to getting back into it, hopefully without igniting any feelings of avarice for more big upgrades.
