I am over 40. Been in the Army. Married 2 kids below high-school level. I spend most of my day programming from home. About every six weeks I have to go to a job site. When time permits I stop at record stores, and antique stores to see what I can find. I like to tinker with everything. I build my own computers and NAS. I hack as much stuff as I can.
No Holy Grail equipment. I like to think I have a nice assortment though. I hope to find a nice 16 inch platter TT. Maybe a Gates or a Commonwealth. My current TTs:
Garrad Lab 80 MK1 (Followed Gene's tutorial and made it play like a MK2)Have a MK2 and a Packard Bell MK2(white and champagne color)
Dual 1229Q waiting to be restored
Dual 1216 (first turntable I took a stab at rebuilding..it works as it should)
Elac 45 X2
Hitachi HT-500,HT-550x2(1 black,1 wood grain, HT-561, HT-860x2. (I really dig Hitachi tables)
Yamaha YP-D10x2 One is a little banged up and might do something neat and custom to it
Yamaha receivers ranging from CR-420-2020s and a CA-810 with Tuner and TC-520 Cassette and TC-1000 deck
Pioneer SX-3700 really beautiful machine.
2 Heathkit W3-AM amplifiers and 2 WA-P2 preamps with matching AM and FM turners.
Bose 601 iii
Pair of EV Aristocrats.
JBL pro iii
I guess nothing really considered audiophile but its the stuff I like.
I also like to hike in the mountains when I get a chance
Thanks for visiting!
