    Default Hi!!

    Long time lurker, and a lover of music and high end audio.

    I try to get out and listen to as much live music as possible, and I am a lover of classical and jazz. With my listening really veering towards classical in the past few years.

    I've been a frequent poster on other forums, and am looking forward to participating in the conversations here.

    I am not knowledgeable enough to say what conductor, composers, I prefer. Though I do know that I love Satie, and I really like the flavor that Hispanic composers seem to bring. But I listen to any and everything.

    Currently I have a Musical Fidelity M1 CD transport and an April Music Stello CDT100 transport. Either of them feed into a MHDT Labd Balanced Pagoda Dac. I primarily use a Tortuga Audio LDR1B.V25 balanced passive preamp, and a DIY Hi Fi Supply Django TVC passive preamp. That goes to a Benchmark Audio AHB2 amp. Which then goes to a pair of Tempo Electric EP-1 speakers.

    I currently have a Technics SP10 MKII turntable, with no arm and cartridge yet, and a Clearaudio Micro Basic phono preamp. I will be moving to a balanced phono preamp, and I want a Trans Fi tonearm. Not sure which cartridge yet, but probably a Soundmsith cartridge.
