    Haha, yes, and thanks for the reply.

    Looking to upgrade turntable, possibly Lenco GL75 although I think I will miss the auto return!?
    Also looking to upgrade CD player but it needs to be on the warm/analogue sounding side if thatís possible?
    Had thought of trying to build my own speakers, but that may need to wait...

    The word is 'valves' in this country, not tubes. Tubes are what Smarties come in!

    Welcome to AoS Paul.

    Nothing wrong with using a graphic equaliser to make small, discrete adjustments (say no more than 1-2dB, over a broad band of say an octave). There are a few recordings that can benefit from a little 'tweeking' in that respect.

    Enjoy the Forum

    Hello Paul,

    Welcome to AoS from East Devon, we have similar musical tastes it seems, I am a bit stuck in 70's prog and rock, but do listen to other genres. The "What are you playing now" threads a very good for finding new stuff to listen to.

    There is a classical one as well.

    Cheers
