  1. Nice selections.

    Thanks for the welcome. ...Yeah that's why I'm totally suspicious of all you guys.
  3. Newbie in town.

    That's a good idea. Not a lot of friends have top end gear though.
  4. Newbie in town.

    Oh, there sure is.
  5. Why do people keep telling me to try tubes?

    I think my tone might be being lost here

    Thanks guys. I'll check out the sub-forum for sure, thanks Monty. My listening includes all of the above - vinyl, CD, bluetooth, streaming. To be honest though, most of it is done in headphones while commuting. At home it's a mix. For an amp, I'll need the Phono of course. And then another input for CD and at least a third for the bluetooth. I'm borrowing a Rega Brio-R at the moment, which I'm enjoying. But for budget I'd probably like to be a starter at $500 but could be convinced to go to $2000 for the right thing.

    Those are just the rules.
  8. Why do people keep telling me to try tubes?

    The tubes make it a rig, of course.

    Hi again, just to back up the music glutton thing, here's the list I put together every year of what I've listened to: http://workingclassdan.tumblr.com/post/155007419419/massive-music-post-for-2016 210 new albums last year. Doesn't include re-listens or back catalogue. My hi-fi setup has been fairly basic for these parts, Sony receiver with JBL 3-ways for almost the past 20 years. So I'm opening Pandora's box by hanging out here, and I'm ready to start buying (not selling) a few bits and pieces as soon as the mods see fit to let me loose on the classifieds I'm probably going to be a bit quiet while I read loads of info on here and go down the rabbit hole and learn a lot. Not even particularly many questions yet about hifi but I do have plenty of valve guitar amp experience and deacdes of close analytical listening to bring over to this game.

    Love this topic. Why not just have a SS system and a tube rig?

    Hi all, I'm in Melbourne and I've just joined on the recommendation of a friend. I'm a total music glutton and have worn out my old receiver finally (or more likely it got damaged while moving house), so I'm using it as a good excuse to upgrade. So on the lookout for a new integrated amp/receiver. This looks like a good forum to get deeper into gear that I shouldn't really look at in case I'm forced to sell my children to afford stuff. Cheers and see you on the boards. - dan
