Default Oh this is going to be fun!!!

A big hello from beautiful Portland Oregon. This is my first post here and I'm sure there will be many to follow. I'm green in the DIY area of audio but this looks like the place to learn. My audio experience is more towards vintage gear but chip amps and small full range drivers have my heart and ears now.

It all started when a friend of mine gave me a Tripath TA2020 amp he had built. Along with the amp he gave me a pair of Fostex FE127E's. I'm now in the process of choosing a speaker cabinet for my Fostex......which is what has me here.

Happy Listening!

Hi 503 and Welcome to diyAudio!!!!

Eh - word of warning about P10's audio fest - 1) the exchange rate for the beer they drink is 1 Canadian = about 3 USA "play" beers - adjust your intake accordingly. 2) The invitation to "have a couple of cold ones" loosely translate into "pass out over in the bunk area". 3) Things that catch on fire (excepting audio gear) or go KABOOM are not allowed..... (which is a good thing)... 4) You will have a blast and meet a lot of great folks.....

Hi firechief - Welllllllllll take what I'm writing with a grain of salt because I have only attended P10's little fest via the pictures posted here and live tooooooo far away to make the trip without a major effort. That - and Terry O. said he would give me a kickback for any newbies that show up.......

Thomas, I have actually met Terry O. Yes at the Mercer Island Audio fest. The only DIYer that I have met face to face. Can you imagine that! Terry is my first.
