    I'm am a recent addition to the Audiokarma clan, thanks to my brother, AK user mike_p. He has finally succeeded in drawing me in to the world of Hi-Fi. I have always been a member of the salvage (junk), repair & enjoy society. Mike helped set me up with the finest system I have ever had. I am happy as a clam to have the equipment and the guidance of my brother, mike_p!

    Here is the equipment list:

    Preamp: Audio by Van Alstine FET Valve CF
    Amps: Odyssey Khartago Mono block amps w/ upgraded caps and toroids
    Speakers: Magnepan MMG speakers with upgraded Mye Audio stands
    Tuner: Techincs Model #: TX-9500 ll
    CD Player: Sony SCD-CE595 5 disk changer
    Turntable: Pioneer PL510A (free from the original owner, in the original box)
    Phono Stage: Musical Fidelity X-LPS v3
    Bluetooth: TP-Link HA100 Bluetooth Music Receiver
    AC Line Conditioner: Blue Circle Audio PLC Puck

    I have a Magnepan Bass Panel on order, too: can't wait for that to arrive.

    I don't currently have a pic of my equipment, but here is a pic of part of my shop.

    Glad to be here:

    Welcome to AK!

    A very nice first system, can't wait to see pics. If it looks as good as your bench, we are all in for a treat.

    I snapped a few pics of my new system.
    I have it at my office where I can really enjoy it.
    The Magnepan MMGs have really nice MYE speaker stands.
    I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the matching Magenpan Bass Panel!
    Once I tweak the location of the speakers, I will put in some longer speaker wire.
    The speakers are sitting on either side of a photography table I built out of an aluminum networking rack & an old desk.
    I added four 5000 K degree color temperature LED floods for better illumination.
    Next project is a system for my home office, starting with an AVA/Hafler SS amp and some nice Dynaco speakers from the in-laws.
    Thanks for stopping by!

    Incoming! The Magnepan Bass Panel arrived today. It really fills in the low end when used with my Magnepan MMGs. :bigok:
