Highlights of the year for me were seeing/hearing my amp and phono stage kick ass at Marco's. :)

1. Converting completely from CD to computer based audio, it has reawakened lost music for me (the CDs that sounded bad on the CD player) and has forced me to learn quickly about the digital playback realm, how easily truly good digital reproduction is obtainable and all the little 'tweaks' that can be tried to maximise that quality.

2. Being one of the three chaps who started this forum, I (well, we) hoped it would become something good where folk could feel a part of a group of friends that can discuss differences of opinion in a gentlemanly fashion. I think it's looking that way so far, and it's nice to see all areas of hi-fi catered for and respected as such.

3. Meeting all the great members we have here, you are an excellent bunch of chaps! :)

For me it was getting the 813 amp in my system,and then fitting some Mundorf coupling caps to my Audio-Note DAC.This transformed my system.Electrostatics CAN do proper bass!

I guess the lowest/highest point for me was finding out that my Yarland Pro200SE 300B single ended amplifier was a huge pile of c**p and that now I have to make do with transistor power. I love valves but just can't find the money any longer.

Musical highlight... Paul Weller 'At the BBC' on vinyl.

Thanks David.
I can't really take the credit. It's a family recipe with a secret ingredient from the old country!
Hope you are well?
