    Default Hello Fellow Audio Enthusiasts

    Hi, my name is David, and I'm an Audioholic.
    I enjoy listening to Jazz, Classical, 70s Rock, 80s music, Female vocal, and some Pop.

    I've had quite a few different systems, which was kind of fun, but over the last few years I became disillusioned with mixing and matching components, and I have since moved to a Naim setup which is seving me well so far.
    In the last year, I have been focusing solely on setting up a good streaming system. The sources being, Tidal and ripped CDs served from a Synology NAS. Also Internet radio.

    I still have my LPs, and at some point I would like to re-setup a nice vinyl rig. I even still have a few Cassette decks and tapes, so I will add that format to my setup as well.

    I first caught the audio bug, way back when the only hi-end gear I'd heard of, or seen anywhere, was McIntosh. So, that's what I bought. That would have been the early 70's when I was about 18yo. i had a good job, and I bought the Mac gear used from a dealer. Man, it sounded great.

    Anyway, that's my audio experience. I've belonged to other forums in the past, and I'm always amazed at how endlessly intriuged I am when it comes to discussing almost anything audio.
    I look forward to chatting with many of you here.
    Cheers.

    Dave

    Welcome to AoS Dave.

    McIntosh make some excellent gear, and there is something to be said in having a system whose components are all from the one manufacturer.

    Thanks for the welcome, Barry, nice to meet you.
    That's it really, I'm finding the hobby to be somewhat simpler being setup with gear from the same manufacturer. I was having difficulties getting things just right with mixing and matching.
    I understand most of the associated technical stuff regarding impedances and tubes etc., but it's just easier when the manufacturer does it.
    And my system/music is sounding better now as well.
    Cheers.
