    Default Old timer back in the groove

    Evening folks

    Name is Dave located in Cheshire,was very interested in hi fi 40 yrs ago but amateur radio came into my life and ,well,that was that.
    Downsized 1 yr ago from a great radio location to this place and no room now for towers and rotatable antenna so it's back to the old love for me AND I am loving it.

    Interested mainly in vinyl,having loads of fun re building a collection.

    Have a few black boxes,cd,tuner etc but main system is

    LP12 /Nima/Adikt set up by the excellent Peter Swain to

    Croft phono amp with TQ interconnects to

    Musical Fidelity A300 dual mono intergrated feeding

    Spendor A6 speakers

    Nothing grand but the sound is pretty good but I am looking to improve.

    Hope to learn a bit here (never too old)

    Ok,thats the hello so lets go

    Hi and welcome.

    What kind of music do you like? I think there are quite a few different tastes round here.
    Good luck with getting your kit up and running - but do find time to listen to.

    Strange for a bald old pensioner but Prog Rock is my main bag although since starting to collect vinyl again I find myself listening to all sorts of stuff.Good fun to be had looking for bargains !

    Hi James

    Strangely I am considering a change to Croft like yours or maybe a 25r with a pair of mono blocs.
    Just considering, but I bought a Croft phono amp some months ago,just the cooking version, and I like it a lot,much smoother than the A300 internal stage so it got me thinking.
