Default Hi, I am an audio-hobbyist from Karlsruhe (Southern Germany)

...my interest in audio and DIY-electronics goes back until approximately 1961. At that time I was 11 years old. Four years ago I started once again to design audio components. Because I found the 'modern HiFi' rather boringly.

In my focus today are small triode amplifiers and highly sensitive loudspeakers. (e.g. Greencone speakers mounted in special resonant enclosures)

'Retro-Audio-Concepts' are my personal answer on the iPod-hype.

On my homepage I tell something about my philosophy. Unfortunately in german language only. It would be too much work for me to translate all the pages in englisch.

Best Regards, Jo

Hello und willkommen! It took quite a while to find this forum.

Checked your homepage (nice stuff)... but if you tried to write in english you would reach out to the whole world. I have my hiking pages in swedish only because I thought many swedes would read it. According to statisics it's mostly german and dutch people which are interested in Sarek. I noticed also when I acually was there, we met mostly germans! Swedes travels to warmer countries.... so the whole world can only look at the picuters.

Very welcome and we welcome analog enthusiasts, not many around here.

Hello Jo, and welcome here!

I've lived for 23 years in Strasbourg, not so far away, and have been many times in Karlsruhe. Nice city

Now I'm in Lyon for my studies.


I hope you'll enjoy this forum

Alex

Hi All


Thank you for the friendly welcome and the comments.

@ P-A

Yes, you are right. To make an english website would have been better. I began to write first in German. Then I thought: Ok, I make the English pages later. But later on there were suddenly too many pages. I also do not know this language so well. All I can do is to communicate in simplified english.

@ Cal

... yes, interesting members. As I have seen e.g. Nelson Pass is around here in the forum. I had build the J-Low horn with the Jordan JX driver according to the plan on his website. See picture here: http://www.lebong-audio.de/greencone/test-j-low.jpg

I will develop also a new big horn system with tube active x-over and tube bi-amping. Probably next year.


@ Alex

.. in strasbourg we are quite often. My wife likes to go shopping there and we visit the theatre or the Museum Of Modern Art. I also know Lyon from business contacts.

BTW: I'm a member of another group of audio-maniacs from Paris: 'Mélaudia' (mélomanes et audiophiles associés) www.melaudia.net

@ Tony

A Mexican in Karlsruhe? Nice to read this. I'd like to visit Mexico too, but...

@ dave

Since I was an early adaptor of electronic gimmicks, computer's and all this HiTech-toys for many years (R&D is my normal profession) it is big fun for me to show, that you can reproduce good music (really outstanding good music) with outdated audio concepts. E.g. low power tube amps based on old schematics dating back in the 1930's from e.g. Bell Labs. Vintage Fullrange speakers and so on. This is sometimes a surprise to some folks who do not know this. No - I will never buy an iPod

Best regards, Jo

It's a long way between making yourself understood to a perfect english. Just start doing it and get yourself a good pratice.

Dictionary is here

A hint: Just check the checkbox "Quote" for everyone you want to quote. You can check more than one at the time.
