Hi, my name is Les and I recently joined this forum.

 

I live in Surrey, United Kingdom and I am a producer of quality music radio programs for various radio and digital networks.

 

I am also a hi-fi enthusiast having started my working life in 1970 at one of London's leading high end hi-fi stores when brands such as Leak, Quad and Ferrograph were the market leaders. Valves had just been replaced by those confounded transistor things and Bang & Olufsen made the best TV sets along with Sony Trintron. 

 

I have owned many systems for personal listening over the years. 

 

My current system is listed below.

 

Vinyl:

Garrard 401 in skeletal plinth, SME 3009s2 imp arm fitted with a Shure V15Vxmr with a Jico SAS stylus. Trichord Dino phono stage.

 

CD:

Maranrz CD6006UK special edition.

 

Pre/power amps:

Quad 99-909

 

Speakers:

Audiovector Mi3 Signature on granite plinths, Supra screened cables.

 

Audio interconnects:

van den hul 102mk 2

 

A pleasure to be in the group and I look forward to some interesting conversations 

 

Les.

Thank you djb,

 

Ferrograph were primarily a manufacturer of open reel tape decks, but they also made at least one amplifier. Long gone now, but a few enthusiasts still keep them alive. Their tape machines (except the model 8 which was an unreliable mess of a transport) were better than the comparable Revox machines of the day, but Revox won the battle with keen pricing and marketing. 

 

I must say I am very happy with my system, I think it's time to stop and enjoy it now. The law of diminishing returns applies above where I am now.

Ha! Fiddling I can put on hold. 

 

What I can't seem to do at the moment is stop listening and enjoying! 

 

Oh well, I could have a worse hobby 😀
