Hi All. Just a quick hello and introduction. I'm Nathan and am from Monterey, Ca. I'm relatively new to audio and know very little at this point, but am enjoying the process of learning. I have a budget system that I have pieced together from Goodwill, Salvation Army, and Craigslist so far. My primary media are CD's and vinyl, and mostly second hand as well, and I'm learning how to spot good vinyl, which has been a learning experience. I'm also interested in Casettes and Reel to Reel, but don't have the equipment yet. I'm mechanically inclined and have done a lot of woodworking and auto repairs, but am new to Electronics. I performed my first turntable repair today and am happy to say it was successful because of this site. Thanks!
