    Default Hello from east Kent UK

    Hi first post.

    Just got back into hifi recently in my late 40s

    Recently splurged on an upgraded system. After being happy with a 500 separates CD system for 10 years but only playing it a couple of times a week.

    Amp and streamer, Lyngdorf Audio TDAI3400
    Speakers, Proac tablette 10 signatures and Rel Stentor 3
    Cheap basic Yamaha CD
    Apple TV 4th gen

    I listen to pretty much everything but spend most time listening to Jazz and Progressive house at the moment via Spotify and you tube.

    Welcome Martin. I hung up my disco pants about a million light years ago. I used to strut my stuff at various clubs in London and other venues in the early 70s. It could be said that I am now into "weird" Jazz, the sort of ECM stuff, but found my my way there from Jazz-Funk/Fusion and other Jazz tinged stuff. What are you listening to at the moment?

    Do you have any plans to change what you have at the moment?

    Buy Bose...And get your parking validated!.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    On the jazz side i like the early modern stuff. Blue note artists and chet baker, also listening to Andrea Motis and Joan Chamorro quintet a lot.

    No big plans on changing my system , most of it ive not long had. I dont have any vinyl, our CD collection is stuff i was buying in the 90s and 00s , and isnt huge. I think i will likely pick up something like a PS 4 to serve as CD duty at some point.

    I really like the convenience of online streaming , im very happy with the sound quality of spotify and you tube isnt that far off either. What i like about you tube is the suggestions it runs onto. Listening to artists from the world over that i would literally never have heard of in the 90s.

    What i am looking to do very soon is a DIY mains block, and some power leads.
