Hi folks,

I have just registered with this forum - hello everyone!

To be honest, I have visited many times the pages of this site showing people's wonderful projects. Some pretty impressive craftsmanship there. I intend to add my modest contribution soon.

A bit of information about me. I am an Electronics Engineer with a specialist interest in all things audio. I am now in my 50s but my interest in audio started at the tender age of 11 when I bought my first stereogram. Since then, I have built speakers, amplifiers, a stereo FM tuner and audio test gear. Professionally speaking, I worked for Dolby Laboratories in London for ten years.

So, I'm pleased to join a bunch of like-minded audio enthusiasts.

Hi, Welcome to the forum. You beat me a bit as it wasn't until I was 13 that I fried my first transistor. Dang CK722, couldn't handle 120VAC. :blush:

Good listening
Bruce

Hi Guys!

Many thanks for the welcome.

With reference to your story, Bruce, I had a similar experience with my stereogram. I seem to recall that I tried playing my first reel-to-reel tape recorder through it. Trouble was that I fed it into my phono input! It was soon an ex stereogram! Fortunately, someone older and wiser than me repaired it and I was a happy little chappy. :P

Seeing we are relaying legendary personal stories here I may as well throw my hat in. Got into electronics before 15 (now 61) and bought my first stereo when I was 19: Peak TT, Rotel SS 15W amp and some Kaltro 8" wide range speakers (made my own boxes).

JPC: welcome and we all look forward to see what you have done and doing now. There are dozens of projects here to pick from if you require some inspiration. Which components do you mainly build: speakers, amps, preamps, cables???

Hi,

In the last few years, I have concentrated on loudspeakers. But I have an interest in acoustics so I've been optimizing my speakers having done a load of tests. That's fascinating stuff.

At the end of last year, I put together a digital music source having been a dyed-in-the-wool analog man for 40 years. I play 24 bit/96kHz FLAC files on it and it sounds better than any of my other music sources (vinyl, FM radio, CD). Instruments sound fresh and clean. It's my only source that does justice to the tubular bells on the album of the same name.
