Default Hi from Cary NC

Hi all

I signed up a couple of days ago looking for interesting chats about high end audio and to access classifieds.

I'm in the high end commercial AV business and have made money from good ears for many years, but I really like treating these ears to great sounding music.

I am an engineer; somehow a vocation that is not appreciated too much on certain audio forums...

I build, repair and upgrade tube gear for fun.
