Hi from a rapidly balding oldie!
My interest in audio - we used to call it Hi-Fi - started with a push-pull ECL80valve amp cobbled together from old TV bits & pieces. Driven from a rescued BSR turntable and driving a variety of claped out old radiogram speakers. It was rubbish - absolute rubbish- as indeed was my next amp and the next. Things started to improve when a badly informed customer wanted us to replace his B&O deck with some Garrard junk - oh yes, that B&O falling into my lap made a big improvement :) and I was off.

Lots of water under bridge.

I'm now sat here listening to my o.d. class A FET amplifier - all 5 watts of it driving my o.d. 'bifurcated' horns and wondering (scheming) what to do next - talking of which does anybody know anthing about these HiEND 107 drivers available from hong-kong?

Hi and welcome to diyAudio. If you have a question, you might want to post it in the appropriate forum as not everyone looks in here.

Thanks for that, Cal. That bit about HiEND E-107 speakers was realy just a throw away, but as it happens I found some encouraging chat about them on the site so I've ordered a couple and I'll be trying them in my horns - looking forward to that.

Welcome to the forum... some of us still call it hifi....

You don't have to be old to be bald (aka solar panel for the sex machine)... it was clear that my hair was going by the time i was 17.
