    Cool Greetings from Vectis (via Sark, Wandsworth, Guildford, Bracknell, Colnbroook)

    Hallo, I found this site while searching for spare shelves for the Stands Unique I just Ebayed. Interesting. As advised, here's my Welcome thread.

    As long as I can remember, I've been interested in hi-fi. Back in the '70s, my first holiday job earned me a Goldring Lenco GL101 (the entry-level belt drive - as opposed to the Garrard SP25 Mk III and IV idler drive). My first speakers were KEF K2 Duettes rescued from the TV studios where my Dad worked (thanks Jeff, the sound engineer) which led to a train journey to Tovil to get replacement/exchange B139 bass and T27 tweeter.

    Some decades later, I am now (thanks mainly to a very generous better half) running a Linn Sondek LP12/Basik Plus/K9, NAD 613 cassette deck / Meridian 596 DVD/CD, 551 integrated amp, 504 FM Tuner, A500 speakers. This works with my Sony TV / Humax FVP-5000 STB and JRiver MC26 PC-based streaming stuff. Just bought a s/h 555 power amp. That prompted a bunch of servicing. 504/555 away for service/recap. When they're back, the 551 will go the same route. The LP12 is away for service/Cirkus/Hercules II.

    In addition, I still have a pair of Wharfedale DD1s plus Sennheiser HD265s, Meridian Explorer, Bose QC-30 (for the gym ) and Sony WH-1000XM3 (for travelling). Still not sure what to get for late-night closed-back headphone listening.

    Most recent purchase - which led me to sign up here - is a Stands Unique Midi stand for which I need a new shelf!
