    Default Greetings from the ribble valley

    hi
    my names Pete and live on a farm in middle of nowhere in the ribble valley.(Always handy to have no neighbours when missus goes shopping and i can shake the dust in the room )
    Ive been a music fan and hi-fi nut since the age of 10. My first foray being an old dansette box record player which i had a friends dad put sockets for 2 speakers, even though it was mono .
    Along the way ive had a technics seperate system with wharfedale diamonds. Best system back in the days was pioneer a400, marrantz 63 signature, with a pair of celestion 9 speakers (still one of the finest pair of speakers i've heard).The likes of Audiolab, exposure, monitor audio, densen, beresford, have all spent time as my pride and joy. Due to recieving some inheritance and not having any commitments my system these days comprises:
    hugo2 dac (connected to my computer running roon software and tidal masters)
    Bryston 28b sst monos
    PMC PB1 speakers
    chord cabling throughout
    musical tastes are eclectic and open to most stuff just listening to snow ghosts at mo and quite liking it. Some artists to give you an idea would have to include bears den, faithless, dido, mike oldfield, yello, thomas dolby, air, royksopp, acdc, floyd, marillion, dave matthews band, rush, hybrid minds, to name but a few. Look forward to scouting the forums and always up for meeting like minded folk for a beer or 2 if im ever in the area.

    Inheritance money is what paid for my latest gear. My brother was concerned that I was spending my money daft, he bought himself 6 series BMW, which is now worth approximately bugger all As it turns out I did spend my money a bit daft - if I'd joined AoS first my inheritance would have gone a lot further. We live and learn.

    How have you gone on with the floods Pete? I know the Ribchester Arms, which we've dined at many times, and is probably not a million miles from you, is going to be shut for at least six months
