    It dawned on me that I've been a member of this forum since Feb 08 and not made a single post, so Ithink an intro is the best place to start.

    I've been into hifi for a long time now and from the early 90's have moved more towards vintage hifi.

    I've owned lots of great kit over the years and have a now quite close to having my ideal setup(s).

    I am currently using:

    Toft LBPA-1 pre into Musical Fidelity 550K monoblocks which drive my JBL Array 1400 speakers

    A Cambridge Audio C100 pre into a DPA OS51 stereo single ended PE1/100 valve amp which drives my Westrex 2326A speakers

    A neumann W444St pre into an Amcron D75 amp to drive my BTH K10A speakers

    Sources are:

    EMT 930st / 929 / 155st/ TSD15 or TMD25
    EMT 938 / 929 / TSD15
    Garrard 401 / Acos Lustre / Denon DL102 or Ortofon S15TE or Ortofo SL15E + 2k - 15k SUT / Surrey Electronics DiskAmplifier 4
    Pioneer PD-D9-J SACD
    Sony PS1 modded
    Cambridge Audio CD6
    Pioneer RT707
    Sansui TU-517

    Other bits are :
    Sennheiser HD560's
    Koss Pro 4a (original)
    Western Electric 119C repeating transformers
    BBC Propak 2
    Musical Fidelity X-10v3
    Nakamichi 600

    Also have a nice BTH A1A valve amp and pre awaiting a service.

    I have lots of vinyl,mainly classical but my tastes are varied so quite an eclectic mix overall.

    OKwill do but where to post? :scratch2:

    The only vintage section is for solid state. Where are the sections for vintage valve amps, Turntables and especially speakers.

    I'll post a fewf pics here first.

    It is, I purchased one a couple of years ago and I'm still amazed at the bass capability of this amp. I've not heard any other single ended amp come anywhere close to it.

    It's started to get a little mains hum in the last couple of months so I'll need to get it checked out. It may be a poor earth somewhere.It used to run virtually silent.
