    Default Hello from Whitstable.

    I'm Dave I live in Whitstable, Kent in the UK with my wife and family.

    I had loads of 'records' as a younger man and listened to them avidly, but as time passed these disappeared. I have collected CD's over the last 25 years, replacing many of the lost records. But I haven't had a decent CD player for a while. My youngest daughter recently took me into HMV and I found their 'vinyl' collection and things have snowballed from there.

    I collect much of the stuff I had as a twenty year old, second hand and new. I re-buy long lost records, buy things that interested me then and collect new stuff that interests me now. I have bought two Imagination albums recently, so I have very little self control!

    My system is as follows:-

    Technics 1210 turntable with an Audio Technica AT440mlb MM cartridge. I have a rewired Rega RB250 I plan to fit.
    NAD 3130 amplifier.
    Rotel RCD 9658X CD player.
    Yamaha WXAD-10 streamer.
    Monitor Audio Bronze B4 floor standing speakers.
    All held together with a collection mid-range cables.

    My plan for the future is to Fit the Rega tonearm and maybe an external PSU, now I have seen the advice thread here. Along with collecting more vinyl.

    Thank you for letting me join.
    Dave

    Hi there all.

    I seem to mostly collect music from the 1980's. It came as a bit of a surprise, I was watching a repeat of a 1985 Top of The Pops and I had something from most of those performing. I do enjoy the music of the band Japan and the solo stuff by its members, along with heavier work by PIL, Killing Joke and Bauhaus. Mixed with a sprinkling of Blues from the likes of SRV and Joe Bonamassa.

    My Hifi is set up in our living room, it was up a corner, but I convinced Mrs T that it needed moving so it had pride of place on a stand by the TV, so the sound now fills the room. With regards to my plans for the Technics 1210 I have mentioned I have a Rega RB250 with a plan to fit shortly. I am also looking at an external PSU, from the likes of Paul Hynes, Origin Live or MCRU. I have built guitar valve amps in the past so doing the work myself does not faze me. And I am well aware that I will end up spending enough money to have bought a high end modern turntable. But I do love to tinker!

    Once that is done I'm not too sure. But I imagine something interesting will catch my eye.

    Dave
