Thumbs up What a cool BBS!

Hello everyone!

I've been poking around this site for a few months now. It's to a point where everytime I get on, I end up spending hours (of work time - DOH!) reading the threads! Furthermore, I now have opinions to express!! Look out! hee hee

A little about myself-

It all started when I was three and I took apart my first AM pocket radio. Since then, I've been addicted to anything audio ever since. Growing up I would collect speakers (!), crappy ones at best - I was simply fascinated by them - I was a weird child. Playing music also was a passion of mine. I pluncked around on a little Yamaha keyboard, playing childrens songs (age 8 time frame). Then, the old drumset came out of the attic and that was that.

When I wasn't pluncking away or banging away, I would tear apart some broken radio, mess around with that Commodore 64, or try to build a circuit without any understanding and release the smoke!

College time! Was it a music degree or BSEE? I love (NEED) toys and EE's make more money than musicians (for the most part), so that was also that.

OK... Now, with my degree completed and workin for a livin, I have project ideas festering! Actually, I have a project brewing building a preamp based on the CS3310 with a user interface (LCD, front panel interface, IR remote, etc.). There are 8 stereo inputs, relay controlled to the CS3310, routed to a couple stereo outputs (also relay controlled for muting). It works great, but it needs a box - which has been the biggest hangup due to lack of proper tools (for what I want to do).

Anyway, I must say that I'm very impressed with the knowledge floating around here! I look forward to using this resource as I continue my adventures in audio.

Thanks!
Dave

In Charlotte, that town where the roads are laid out so poorly.

Jam,

Looks like it's about time for you to make a run to Northern California and hide out. I'll never tell anyone that you are here!
