    Bought the 1973 HiFi Yearbook (in 1974) to see what the fuss was all about. Then immediately went looking for decent gear.

    Started off with used Leak Stereo 70 amplifier and Celestion Ditton 66 speakers, and new Philips GA212 turntable. Bought an Armstrong 624 FM tuner and a NAD 5420 CD player soon after.

    Replaced the amplifier, speakers and turntable in 1980 with a Sansui AU-919 amplifier, Trio KD-500 turntable, SME 3019 Series 3 tone arm, Signet MK111E cartridge, and Spendor BC1 speakers. Still enjoying all five of these wonderful pieces of kit.

    Added Cambridge CXN network player and CXC CD transport in 2017 to replace the Armstrong tuner and NAD CD player (the first update in 37 years!).

    Retired just after my 58th birthday in 2001 and still enjoying it. I'm managing well on my reduced pension, and the stress would probably have killed me before my 65th birthday if I'd stayed in the job!
