Hello all.

I live in London, and am a hopeless valve addict; my little flat is stuffed with boxes of valves and other audio/electronic junk and test gear etc.

Although I have been interested all my life (well since I was about 3) the madness took over only about six years ago. I have a variety of amplifiers that I have built using wherever possible fairly obscure valves.

I listen mostly to classical music, organ especially, so my transmission lines are very important. I partucuary like vinyl although there is work to be done in that department.

Welcome,

Ah, are you the famous 7N7 from "the other lot"?
It you are, you'll find it a bit more lively here! Lot's of near "real-time" interaction.

The Tube Forum is very busy from time to time, and seems to wake up around 23:00 GMT. So you can have a skinfull first if that's your way..

Cheers,

PS Even if you're an "new" 7N7, you're still welcome.

Thank you very much for your kind and welcoming words. I had not realised that I was famous, but yes I am THAT 7N7.

I look forward to some lively discussions; for anyone else who reads this, you will see that I am perhaps more measuring than "listening" but I am a music-lover

Best wishes to all

7N7

Good. That'll stir up some lively debate.
Do you know Fatbottle? I mean apart from at AA?

Yes, since 1997 - I'm usually at the pub

We might have met, I popped in to the pub for the november meet, spent most of the night chatting to Jack about his Monster TL subs at the bar!

Teach us,
Ooh! Bloody Hell!

Well perhaps you haven't seen the ruckus I caused somewhere else: I just got utterly fed up with people discussing the sound of getters, and (here we go - flame-proof suits and fire-extinguishers at the ready) droning on about which 12AU7 sounds the best.

Nevertheless, I am always careful never to make my points personal, even though others have. Naughty that, I think.

I'll try to think of something to post soon; you'll probably find me only in the "Tubes" department as I have very little to say about loudspeakers etc.

I suppose I must behave as I am new here!
