  • Hello from across the pond

    Hello all.

    I'm Josie and I'm a bit of a sound geek.

    I've looked at this forum from the outside for quite a while now and so I thought it's about time I joined as I've found some interesting infomation in the past.

    I'm based in the UK and my system consists of the following:

    Tube Distinctions Copper KT150 amplifier
    Croft Epoch Elite pre-amplifier with many upgrades
    Thorens TD124 Turnatable
    Tannoy Monitor Gold speakers in Lockwood Major cabinets (Big n austerely beautiful) - Ex Chappell Studios, London
    Allo Katana DAC streamer.

    My next step in kit wise is to buy a Studer A80 reel to reel and so I hope AN is a good place to learn some facts.

    My taste in music is Rock, 60's Psychedelic, Dance, Goa Trance and some classical.

    I hope to have a splendid time here.

    Jo x
