The hifi bug bit me with a visit to London, ON with a friend who was starting university there and walked into a hifi shop there, I discovered tubes for the first time which was an ear opener.
I was already spinning vinyl and thought that was cool. It has been a journey since then and gear has come and gone, but the vinyl collection has kept growing. I have made countless friends in this hobby and enjoys our gatherings and talks.
I have a vinyl only setup.
