  • Greetings from Stockholm

    Greeting fellow humans!
    My name is Per Sundell and I´m from Stockholm, Sweden.
    Been registered for a few month but never got around to start writing in the forums until today.

    My day job is as a Curator at the open air museum Skansen in Stockholm.
    In my sparetime I´m an audio & music reviewer for swedish print magazine Hifi & Musik.

    My tastes tend to be centered around my Nottingham turntable and I would say I listen to analogue most of the time.
    The home system consists of:
    Nottingham Analogue Space 294 + heavy platter / Ace Space 12" tonearm / Clearaudio Stradivari / Koetsu Black / Kiseki Purple Heart N.S.
    ASR Mini Basis phonostage
    Revox B77 R2R-tape
    ATC SIA2-150 amplifier
    Micromega CD2 transport
    Simaudio Moon DAC
    ProAc Respons 2.5 speakers
    Nordost cables

    Musical tastes are electronica, post-rock, post-punk, indie with a splash of Jazz and Classical

      Greetings to you Per. Stockholm was a place where I spent a lot of time in the '90s- mainly for work, but on long projects, so I got to spend some leisure time there, and made some friends that i still stay in contact with today.
      It would be nice to hear about the hi-fi and music scene in Sweden. You probably have access to equipment that we do not see in the States, and music culture, while international, and no longer local or regional given the Internet, may still be different for independent or emerging bands.
      So, look forward to your posts.
      And I'll share the one word I remember of Swedish- "Boston gerkhin"- a word for pickle-relish- when I was ordering hot dogs at that little hot dog stand at the kiosk behind the Grand Hotel, near the boulevard with all the fancy retail stores---
      The old city there is quite beautiful....

      I'll surely write you all about the good euro stuff that doesn't come your way!

      Glad to have you aboard! For such a small country, Sweden has a real dedicated high-end audio community!

        Thank you Myles. Well yes we are a small country (about the same pop as N.Y.C.) but we are a few caring about music and sound!
