    Default My set up

    I started around 20 years ago with a typical whathifi set up consisting of Audiolab electronics and mission speakers, then moved onto Rega and discovered Royds. I've then been through many pairs of Royd speakers and became a bit of a swapper. As a bachelor at the time, I enjoyed the thrill of trying new kit with no one to reign me and it was an enjoyable time. 20 years on and I guess I have a set of kit types that appeal to me. I like Harbeths, Audionotes, living voice driven by mainly EL84 valve amps. I guess that may make me more into a sound that I personally like rather than chasing high fidelity.
    lasy year I discovered WLM speakers and was hugely impressed..all that tone thing going on but fun too.

    At present my source is a long standing Chevron Audio paradox NDF DAC clock linked to a Pioneer stable platter transport.

    My amp is the basic common garden model of the Leben CS300. I've had a couple of these and I keep coming back to them. Just superb little amps that play music

    Speakers are a pair of older slightly marked Audionote Es and my recently acquired WLM la Diva floorstanders which are currently being put through their paces.

    The Diva's look nice things Steve. Not sure I'd call a Leben common.

    They're a dual concentric type unit I believe. The Es are superb even though they're old, I'm not finding it easy to choose between the two.

    I'd never heard of them until Steve brought his along to MiBO. Seriously good amplifier, total cut above. Pricey, though.
