    Default Hello AOS world

    My Name is Olivier
    I live in Aix-en-Provence area, France
    I'm an engineer i a semiconductor company.
    I'm found of sound reproduction since I'm a youth and still in Quest of Audio Grail after 40+ years after my Revelation, listening to a system made of Oracle Delphi turntable, Spectral pream, Krell KSA50 feeding Onken-like loudspeaker made according to French review "l'Audiophile" (Altec 416+Audax PR17TSM + Fostex T925).
    I own multiple gears and parts. I'm currently working on loudspeaker design.
    Best regards

    Bonjour Olivier,

    Welcome to AoS, what genre of music do you listen to? Lots to read and chat about on here and most are friendly.


    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    Analog Inputs:
    Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm
    Benz Micro LP-S, Michel Cusis MC, Goldring 2500 and Ortofon Rondo Blue cartridges
    Hitachi FT5500 mk2 Tuner

    Sony 3d blu-Ray for CDs to Caiman SEG
    RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi to Beresford Caiman SEG DAC
    Buffalo NAS Drive

    LFD MMC special phono stage & Rothwell MCX SUT
    ALLNIC T1500 MKII SET 300B amp
    Schiit MAGNI 3 Heresy amp

    Wilson Benesch Vector speakers
    KLH Ultimate One Headphones

    Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable
    Eccose Conductor CA1
    Belden 8402 with Switchcraft 3502A Audiophile High-End RCA
    Chord Epic speaker leads, & signature links

    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but donít tell anyone.

    Default Favorite music

    Hi Adrian
    Difficult to say what is my favorite music. It depends highly on my mood. I can listen to rock, pop, ethnic, classical, blues... I'm quite open. Even if there is to say about sound quality, I even like Spotify playlists or proposals based on my previous choices. It makes me discover some talents I was not aware of. I'm really angry with the corner's record shop that recently suppressed the listening points with headphones. I think I didn't purchase any CD since they did that, though I really liked this format.
    What I almost never do is listening music whilst doing something else, except driving and gym. I'm so receptive to music I can't concentrate on anything else at the same time.
    Not sure I really answered your question, but this is where it drove my thoughts...
