    hi all, happy to be here!

    living in the UK, on the Northants/Oxfordshire borders
    (about 20 miles north of Oxford)

    I'm lucky enough to work from home so I listen a lot!

    system is:
    LP: modded Michell Orbe
    digital: RAID > Roon

    into an SJS Arcadia '1.5' pre
    into Temple Audio monoblock power amps (as good as they are - looking to upgrade these soon)
    into Klipschorns

    music?... a lot of old blues at the moment (which mostly ain't exactly hi-fi, but what the hell)

    also a whole slew of other stuff can be heard curling out of my windows if you happen to be passing...
    Richard Thompson; Son Volt; Dexateens; Teenage Fanclub; Dylan; Little Feat; Neil Young; Neu!; Costello; Uncle Tupelo; Big Star; Glossary; Stones; Django Reinhardt; Gene Clark; Drive-by Truckers; Husker Du; OK I'll stop now...

    speak soon - cheers all

    Hello Colin. Welcome to AOS.

    Klipschorns are fun, nice speakers. What new amplification are you thinking of using with them?

    I'm sure you'll find plenty to interest you here, so get involved and chat with the members, they're all friendly.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.

    thanks, Geoff

    I was thinking Air Tight ATM-1 but, since I'm as hamfisted as they come, I'd probably electrocute myself setting the bias!
    so the reality is something low(ish) powered and (probably) solid state
    I'm starting to think First Watt or something similar (I see someone is selling an Aleph 5 here in these pages that would work)

    cheers

    Colin

    Yes. Something from Pass Labs could be a good move.
