Hello all
Just doing as you all ask & saying hello.
I live in Derbyshire in England.
This is my first step into a forum & into electronics, so please be gentle!
On the plus side I'm quite practical have a good workshop & enjoy learning new things & making things especially when it is something I've not done before.
For a long while I've wanted to upgrade my midi-fi & this seemed the logical way.

Hi Tim,

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll find it the friendliest and most informative forum on the web.

There is a mine of information in the threads already, and I'm sure you'll get many answers to any question you care to post.

And of coures you can't help being from Derbyshire..;)
I know...the water's good.;)

Hi Tim and welcome:)

Good to see another Brit on the board, for a while it looked like we were being taken over by Scandanavians and Aussies;)

Where are you going to start on the upgrade path, any ideas yet?

I still have a stone form the blus stone mine (?) in Derbyshire, collected during a visit in 1974. This was the first and last time I have been in this beautiful spot (ok, much more beautiful than Manchester) - my English should have improved since then, but alas...

Do you mean the "Blue John" mine?
There is a special blue mineral from there.;)

Sorry for the stupid typo: Of course I meant the "Blue Stone Mine". And the stone I have is - you may have guessed - also blue, a kind of amethyst, I suppose.
(This were the days - and the place - I read the first lines of "Lord of the Rings", it was not even translated into German at this time.)
