Default Hi from the UK

Hi,

Im new to diy audio, im interested in learning more about electronics and thought I might try some audio while im learning.

Im thinking of starting with a cmoy headphone amp, then a simple amp and simple pair of bookshelf speakers and if I can mange that then who knows what else

Need to learn more about electronics, parts, diagrams etc before anything though so might be a while before I start.

Hello ChaosUK - and Welcome to duyAudio

Here is a link to a good site to learn a bit about those electron thingies
http://www.bcae1.com/

Lots of things to read and study on as far as your interest go - take your time and do a bit of reading and looking around to get some ideas.

Nice to have you aboard!!
