    Smile Hello from LA

    Hello all. Just found this site and interested in diving in. I'm mostly a jazz and classical listener, with the usual additions of classic rock from the Golden Era of my youth(!). Not new to audio, but the system has evolved to now be PS Audio DirectStream Player and DAC, Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum II integrated amp and Harbeth SHL5+. Gave up my VPI turntable, but now have a KAB-modded Technics SL1200 for the occasional vinyl spin.

    Welcome to AoS Trey.

    Hmmm, replaced a VPI with a Technics 1200? That'll be music to the ears of all the Techies here. Also good to learn of a Harbeth user Stateside.

    Enjoy the Forum
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
