Hello to all you good people from the rain lashed Scottish Hebrides. I’ve been a lurker for a couple of years after going classic/vintage and thought I’d come out of the closet and say hello. I’ve had many systems since my first purchase in 1978 of a Rega planar 2, Nad 3020 and Mordaunt speakers, latterly spending too much and becoming disillusioned. So I sold the lot and bought a wee Fatman iPod player to tide me over while I spent a long time researching. Fortunately I came across this site and a few others which guided me towards the system I now have. There are no Hifi shops where I live and opinions, reviews and forums are where I have to do my sound shopping! So I’ve ended up with the best system I’ve ever owned and it cost next to nothing compared to what I’d previously spent. Quad 66cd, Marantz 2238b and Acoustic Energy speakers. Sheer bliss and with no hiccups to speak of for the past couple of years since gathering it all. So many thanks to you all.
