    Default Greetings From The New Forest

    Hello all.
    My name is Clive, I am a retired engineer fortunate enough to be able to live in a beautiful part of the country, the New Forest.
    I am not a prolific poster, but if I am stuck for an answer to something I will ask a question, and similarly if somebody asks a question that I know something about I will try to help.
    My system has evolved through much swopping and changing, and like many of my sort of age, has ended up with vintage idler drive TTs, valve amps and big Tannoys with a good music server/streamer and cd player as a digital front end.
    Music taste is very eclectic, jazz, blues, rock, pop, opera, and all classical genres.
    Regards
    Clive

    Hi Clive, nice to see a familiar face here, how are things, it sounds like you might have changed one or two things since i saw your awesome system?

    Mind you, I know the feeling, still not totally settled mine yet either although it is a lot nearer to how I want it to be,

    Hi Clive. Welcome to AOS.

    Your equipment choices will sound familiar to many of us here, good vintage gear is well liked.

    I'm sure you'll find plenty to interest you here. Have a look around and join in the chat.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.

    Thank you all for your welcome.
    Tom, I 'm still weighing up the EAR 861 I bought from you against the Shindos. I mainly listen to the EAR and it drives the 15" Reds really well, but every now and again I connect up the Shindos and oh, how sweet and nuanced that SET sound is. I can't keep both in the long run so will probably have to decide to let the Shindos go eventually.
    Brook, nice to hear from you. I think when you were last over I had the Audio Note AN Es but now have Tannoy GRF Corner Horns. You are very welcome to come for a listen.

    Nice to see you here Clive I didn't make the connection! You aren't alone making the journey from E's to Tannoys and the associated journey from SET to PP. The 16ohm taps on the EAR make it absolutely ideal for the Reds.
