Default Introduction

Hello, I am from Illinois. I have new and old stereo equipment going back to the sixties. My friends have abandoned this hobby. I make up for them and have boxes of lp's and cd's. 4 systems up and going at the moment. Folks on this site really care about music, sound, and equipment. Nice to be here. Gary
