Thought I would introduce myself. I’ve been an audiophile since my jr. high/high school days in the mid-1970s and have owned and listened to a variety of audio gear over the years. I became a kit-building (Heathkit, Dynaco, Hafler) DIYer in the late 1970s and went on to study a little about electronics. My early DIY days were influenced by the landmark Jung & Marsh article of 1980 in Audio magazine. I suppose I am kind of old school but am looking forward to sharing some interesting discussion in the forum.
Thanks for having me. Peter
