Hello from North East Indiana
« on: 1 May 2021, 09:14 pm »
Hello all - I am a newbie and have been interested in the designs by Danny as my entry point to get back in to the world of audiophiles. I am running an Adcom 5800 with two Acoustic Research AR-9 (Hi-Res) floor speakers. I have just purchased the X-Voce kit today. I am looking forward to this as my first build. I really want to build the X-Statics, so I  am sure this kit will help me make the leap or change my mind. 

I got interested in audio again after a long absence. I was a teenager when I bought my Acoustic Research speakers. I worked at an electronics store and they were almost their best pair available. I had been moving them from house to house for the last 15-16 years and not even hooking them up. My father in law happened to buy a new amp and I took his old Adcom off his hands to see if my speakers would still play. Turns out they do! And I remembered instantly how much I love just listening to music. I’m looking forward to the journey and love the content from Danny on social media.

Welcome!  I went to college in Angola, about the time of your AR-9's.  In fact have a used ARS-500 15 inch ported subwoofer that I use in my AV system that works very well. 

Even if not interested in professional gear, suggest stopping into Sweetwater on the west side of Fort Wayne.  It's a huge wonderland of gear and much more.

Sweetwater is an awesome store for sure! Great to see all the growth they are having as well.
