Default Northwest old noob


Just found diyAudio. Have long enjoyed futzing with audio - built Dynaco PAT-5 preamp, FM-5 tuner, SWTP "Armadillo" 25W amplifier, Netronics R&D direct drive turntable with Shure SME tonearm w/ imported fluid damper, MicroAcoustics 2002E cartridge. All with Dynaco A-25s and Koss Pro-4AAs (later, Yamaha YH-1 Orthodynamics). All but the turntable setup and A-25s are long gone due to losses in moves, sigh.

From 1979 to 1989 I worked in the same HP division as Siegfried Linkwitz and was most impressed with his audio developments. Good to see he's still at it.

Did pick up a serious USB phono preamp/digitizer to capture my collection of direct-to-disk records but then lost 'em all to one of the moves. Many aren't available anywhere now in digital form.

Best to all - will enjoy keeping up with you!
