    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.

    A serious welcome from Lincolnshire. I too am addicted but to music, not necessarily hi-fi. Have fun.

    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,
