  • Love the AudioNirvana logo!

    With a logo such as the one selected I figured music is going to play a big part on this forum. Please tell me this is so as I am a "music first" audiophile, but with an obvious passion on how to best deliver that. Music is the driving force of my passion for all things audiophile and I hope I can contribute in a meaningful way as AudioNirvana grows.

    My main musical interests are rock, blues, live recordings, female vocals and acoustic folk/rock/blues.

    I enjoy my music on an entry-level audiophile system that I've setup in an unfinished basement space of about 11x16ft. It's my little home away from home and despite it's bare-bones look, it brings me much pleasure. The gear I use to play my music with consists of the following:

    Oracle Paris Mk.V turntable
    Oracle/Pro-ject modified 9cc tonearm
    Dynavector DV-20x2L moving coil cartridge
    Pioneer RT-909 Reel-to-reel
    Marantz Reference PM-KI-Pearl Integrated Amplifier
    Genesis G7.1f loudspeakers

    I use both a manual Spin-Clean and Nitty Gritty 2.5Fi RCM to keep my LPs ready for action.

    That's about it!


    PS: I do play digital, but not on the main system, as I prefer to keep that fully analogue. This is just a preference and not a condemnation

    Welcome John! Glad to see you here!!! Please thank my former Ultimate Audio Art Director Mike Medina for the concept and design of the forum's logo. Mike is a genius and it was near impossible to choose from the five choice he presented us with (Mark and Andre saw the mock-ups!). The logo represents what I want the forum to be: a fusion of music, sound and audio! I always found sharing music was one of the fun aspects of the hobby.
    Have no fear, there will be plenty of music. And I'm sure you will make a major contribution to the music content of the forum!!!
