    Default Addicted!

    Yes, addicted to audio. My name is Kenneth and I go by Kenny. I build speakers, many speakers. I use GAS amps mostly, own Mac tube, Crown and some small d/t class amps. Straight wire with gain guy. Building a pre with phono for my trusty old thorens.
    Got on board for the dac threads. I'm a regular on techtalk forum.
    Hope to exchange what little I know.

    Hi Kenneth. Welcome to AOS.

    Speaker building can become an obssession. I used to be the same. There are plenty of us at it.

    If you have DIY projects on the go, you could feature them in our Drawing Board section, they'd be appreciated.

    Enjoy the forum,
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
