  • Hi from KY

    Hello everyone! My name is Dave and I'm So glad to have found this forum. I've been an audiophile and music lover since i was 18 (which was a long time ago) and gone though so much gear i've lost track.
    I've been an admirer of Mr. Astor's writing down through the years and greatly appreciate his insights (especially into Magico) which have helped me make wise choices.
    I hope I can add my friendship and small part to this growing community. Thanks!

                If you’d like, why don’t you list your system components as most of us have at the bottom of your future posts. I can’t tell you how to do it because I have to search it out thru trial and error each time I update my own but I’m sure someone here can tell you how to find it.
