    Default Hello from sunny Huddersfield (not...)

    Hi there,

    I'm Tony from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire. I used to post as Pianoman on Wigwam (not any more) and occasionally on Pink Fish, but I've enjoyed browsing and reading threads here so it was high time I joined in, now as Bass lover - don't ask me why I picked that...! I must say my hifi is pretty ordinary, so it's mainly the classical music section I'm interested in, as Jerry migrated over here form the Wam and we had some good run ins regarding contemporary classical - though I think he's seen a bit of the light..?

    Gear is ProAc D15s, 10 plus years old but still sound good; Cyrus amp and now almost exclusively streaming form Spotify or my ripped collection from the MacBook. I've become something of a Headfi addict, so discussions on good cans also interest me.

    thanks

    Tony
