    Love the forum, it's been a fountain of knowledge :)

    Hifi and music lover since as long as I can remember, grown up with Realistic, Technics, the odd Linn turntable... then eventually went all out and bought a Pathos classic One mk2 and some Wilson Benesch Arcs 14 years ago and haven't looked back since. (On to Naim as my main source now, Nait XS2 with a flatcap XS)

    I've definitely caught the vintage bug in the last few years, picked up some great Sansui (au-101 etc, various turntables), Sony (my current TC-186 cassette deck I couldn't part with) Pioneer (got a lovely stable platter precision series cd player) etc, in fact I'm looking at some Marantz Imperials as my latest buy, the 7's to sit alongside my JBL TLX 16 and maybe go with a Marantz 300DC.

    I DJ (have done pirate radio), make the odd tune and listen to live music as much as possible, love almost every genre though have a penchant for the harder dance styles (jungle, speedcore....yes that works through vintage lol) but acid jazz, Indie, whatever :)

    Well thanks for listening to my waffle and I hope to join in around here ;)

    Welcome to the AK site.

    Ah yes the "Realistic"... and the memories that went with that old gear.

    What you've got now is quite a few steps up. Good move.:thumbsup:

    I have an old Realistic reel to reel. Well, technically it is at my folks' place, but I will be bringing it up to my place before too long. Welcome.
