    Hi guys & girls (because I hope there are some ), apologies for my absence...
    I think it might have been the first time in my life I didn't have anything to add
    For years now I guess I haven't exactly been stuck in any kind of rut, but I have been very happy with what I have kind of thing, I have had no reason to change anything...
    I still get a massive buzz when I turn up the HiFi & find myself grinning & saying to myself that this is unbelievable
    It's like that right now.... It's why I have been lazy in a way.
    New music & hearing things that blow my mind & in a crazy way make me feel glad that I'm alive & can hear this!
    In certain ways I guess I feel blessed
    Nothing has really changed since I was last here, equipment wise... I'm still getting used to what I have & I'm very happy. However, I seem to be getting stuck in to doing things & right now I have a motorbike in my kitchen that is getting worked on... I aim to have a lot of fun on it later this year....
    Once that is out of the way I'm going to build what I class as the "final speakers"... Ones that I won't replace because they'll make these ones I'm listening to sound anemic...
    At times I listen to things loud... I have no idea what SPL loud is that I listen to, but I reckon 100DB+ to be very loud indeed & the grin factor of a HiFi is when you make it that loud & there is little if any distortion.
    So I'm going to share this with you, when I build the new speakers
    Because I know I'll never find the limit of what they can do I guess I'll keep on smiling....

    Hope you're all well Not posted on any forum in years so it'll take time for me to get used to this again...
    Enjoy the music!!!!
    Bests, Mark

    As long as you're happy Mark. That's all that matters.

    I'll be interested in your speaker project when you get stuck in.

    Was this just a quick 'hello' though, before another 'cheerio'?

    Hopefully not, but I've witnessed these rather disappointing 'false dawns' before from returning members, who haven't been around for a while... Come on matey, are you back or not?
