      I build cables for friends and family or whenever i need another run for some gear. I built a pair of simple cabinets for a friends Audio Nirvana Super 8s. It got me very interested in going full range since the sound was like nothing i had heard before. Open baffle full range is a whole other experience as well.

I read the messages posted here with interest especially the results of the cable shoot out you all had at the last meeting. I was anxious to attend because i have been building my own cables since I was a teenager and i know how different cables can sound. Something came up at the last minute and i could not attend. I hope to make it to your next meeting and meet some fellow audio nuts.

        Just wanted to introduce myself and give a little background.

        My name is Michael and I'm originally from California but moved out here for the wife who is born and raised Texan. 

        I got into audio when my dad was gifted some audio gear from his good friend. That gear was a phase linear 700 series I and 4 Bose 901. We hooked I up in the garage and I was hooked.


        My first set up was a phase linear 400 and a pair of CV D9's. I still have the PL although it isn't quite the same anymore internally. I'm pretty handy with soldering so I have self learned how to fix some stuff. My main hobby outside of listening is to fix broken gear. Most of the gear I have now was broken at some point but I enjoy the accomplishment.


        Anyways, I actually met a member (Gene) a couple years ago when I picke up a tube amp from him. He told me about the group but life got me sidetracked. I actually signed up for the group recently and no joke right after I did Gene messages me about some other gear. He invited me to the meeting last weekend but I couldn't make it as I had other obligations. Pretty bummed I missed out.


        Well, thanks for having me on board and I look forward to some fun times listening to gear and talking about audio.

            Just wanted to introduce myself and
            give a little background.My name is
            Michael and I'm originally from California but moved out
            here for the wife who is born and raised
            Texan. I got into audio when my dad was
            gifted some audio gear from his good friend. That gear was a
            phase linear 700 series I and 4 Bose 901. We hooked I up in
            the garage and I was hooked.
            My first set up was a phase
            linear 400 and a pair of CV D9's. I still have the PL
            although it isn't quite the same anymore internally.
            I'm pretty handy with soldering so I have self learned
            how to fix some stuff. My main hobby outside of listening is
            to fix broken gear. Most of the gear I have now was broken
            at some point but I enjoy the
            accomplishment.
            Anyways, I actually met a
            member (Gene) a couple years ago when I picke up a tube amp
            from him. He told me about the group but life got me
            sidetracked. I actually signed up for the group recently and
            no joke right after I did Gene messages me about some other

            Well, thanks for having me
            on board and I look forward to some fun times listening to
            gear and talking about audio.

              Welcome to the group Micheal.

                   I am sure you will enjoy our merry band of audiophiles.  Have you purchase your top hat and monocle yet? There is a great little place downtown which gives a discount to RCA members. They also stock a great selection of pipes and tabacco. We do not tolerate that corn cob stuff so make sure you get Savinelli or better. The more obnoxious the tabacco the better. We are not happy unless we cannot see ourselves though a thick cloud of pipe smoke.  Start practicing the pinky up while enjoying your favorite beverage and you will fit right in. You may also be quizzed on your wine knowledge and Frasier episodes.  We look forward to meeting you.

              Just messing with you man. HAHA 

              These are some of nicest most knowledgeable group of guys you will ever meet.  I am very happy to be part of this group and I am sure you too will enjoy it.

              Iggy

              Just wanted to introduce myself and give a little background.
              My name is Michael and I'm originally from California but moved out here for the wife who is born and raised Texan. 
              I got into audio when my dad was gifted some audio gear from his good friend. That gear was a phase linear 700 series I and 4 Bose 901. We hooked I up in the garage and I was hooked.

              My first set up was a phase linear 400 and a pair of CV D9's. I still have the PL although it isn't quite the same anymore internally. I'm pretty handy with soldering so I have self learned how to fix some stuff. My main hobby outside of listening is to fix broken gear. Most of the gear I have now was broken at some point but I enjoy the accomplishment.

              Anyways, I actually met a member (Gene) a couple years ago when I picke up a tube amp from him. He told me about the group but life got me sidetracked. I actually signed up for the group recently and no joke right after I did Gene messages me about some other gear. He invited me to the meeting last weekend but I couldn't make it as I had other obligations. Pretty bummed I missed out.

              Well, thanks for having me on board and I look forward to some fun times listening to gear and talking about audio.
