    Default Hello from Canada

    Hello All!

    I've been following some of your threads so thought I'd join in and try to contribute a little bit to the hobby we all love.
    I'm Shawn and I live in the beautiful, desert like, Okanagan Valley, BC which is also home to Canada's wine country.

    Music lover since I could walk I got involved with audio as soon as I got my first paycheque and haven't looked back.

    After many years in hibernation I got bit by the audio bug again a few years ago and the system has pretty much been renewed over the last 18 months.

    It's current manesfestation is:

    Vinyl: Rega Planar25 w/ Tangospinner inner platter, 24V motor & TTPSU, RB250/Tecnoweight/Pete Riggles VTAF, DV 20X2H
    Valab LCR1-MkIII

    Purchased and enroute but haven't yet received is an Audiomods Series 6 tonearm w/micrometer vta.

    Digital: Cambridge Audio DacMagic & laptop (mostly cds burned to flac file via JRiver 24.0)

    Amp: Exposure 2010s2

    Cabling: Audio Sensibility - Statement ICs & Testament speaker cable

    Speakers: rotating as req'd - Totem Dreamcatchers, Spica TC60s, PSB GT1s.


    Music, mostly vinyl centric, leans heavily towards jazz, rock and orchestral.

    Cheers,

    Shawn

    Hello Shawn. Welcome to AOS.

    Interesting to see you have Spicas. You don't hear much about them these days, but they do have devotees.

    There's a lot going on here, so just join in any chat that interests you.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.

    Thanks everyone.

    Start of the Victoria Day long weekend here so get 3 days of R&R so there'll be lots of tunes & drinks as the wife & I are just a couple of DINKSAH (Dbl Income No Kids At Home)

    Trying to be patient while awaiting the arrival of the new Audiomods 6 arm to install. There's going to be a TT shootout between the Rega 25 and an Ariston RD 11 Superieur I have in reserve. The winner will stay on & the loser will have to find a new home 'cause I'm a ruthless bugger!
