Default Greetings from planet Adelaide

Greetings and salutations to all you fine people who share 'the passion' (not Mel Gibson's) for all things audio. Adelaide's fair city is in the south of central Australia and I am one of 1 million other souls that bask in a dry Mediteranean climate. The location of my house is 241956208 E and 60918872 S (in radians x 10^8) in case you were panning on navigating here using your hand held GPS receiver.

I have neglected my interest in audio for some years due to other commitments, viz three little ones that make a lot of noise and cost alot of money. However, I am beginning to pick things up again. I have some reasonable old gear, a Mission Cyrus 2 amp I bought whilst I lived in the UK, a Rega Planar 2 with RB300 arm and some B&W DM110 speakers which are the first thing I plan to upgrade - suggestions welcome.

I design electronics (sometimes for a living) and currenly have a project going on the side designing and prototyping a 40W valve power amplifier , a labour of love. I look forward to many an engaging dialog with some of you.

Great to see another 'all-round' man here.
Don't get hooked on them tubes for too long and enlighten us with some posts in all forums..
But certainly finish that 40 Watter first.

Welcome to the forum Chris

I suspected there might be a few of us ot there. Good idea about DIY meetings. I'm in the east probably about 15-20 mins from where you are. Plan to keep in touch.
