I got into audio from a very young age - at 15 I got a Hanimex stereo cassette deck and cannabalized two radiograms for their valve amplifiers to run one per channel.
Then bought up some Phillips tweeters, midrange and woofers and built some cabinets.
That was the first proper beginning to my ongoing HiFi journey.
Have been fortunate to have met some real characters in audio in
My life and to have become good friends with some.
