I'm new around these parts but this looks like a place that I might really fit in.
Welcome VinylRob, from another newbie! :thumb: You'll fit in...... :D

Laura,  Leaving over the right to petition the government?  Why should a ..... well you know the drill or is it metal? 
Back to basics, lead the charge.  While we're at it - throw greenpeace under the waves.  It's about r e s p e c t rule of law.

Welcome all!

New'ish requirements at AudioCircle require this sticky...but, the welcome mat has been out to all active, returning and inquiring vinylphools for some time.

Each circle tends to take on it's own 'lilt' based on the activities of participants and moderator(s) alike. I see this circle as a place where there are no 'stupid' participants, questions or experiments.  We're all on a road together - each of us with our share of foibles, expertise, and aptitudes - let's enjoy the ride in its entirety.

I was tapped as Moderator a few years ago by member Josh K., who at the time was inactive in vinyl and was looking for a more active participant.  I had just returned to vinyl after 4 of my most miserable years of music listening ever - exclusively with compact disc.  I tried and failed and was tortured by digi-titus for 4 years :cry:

Clearly, digital has improved dramatically and at quite reasonable prices the past few years....but, there is nothing as alluring as dropping a needle on a well cleaned record and playing it for me.  As good as digital has gotten - vinyl continues (at this writing) to reign supreme.  I suspect my time as caretaker of this hallowed circle will pass the day I feel otherwise. 

As one's hearing acuity is lessened as we age no matter how well you take care of yourself...that day may one day occur.  But, for now, vinyl reigns supreme when my system goes on. 

Come one, come all - all questions are entertained here - please let our team or dedicated vinylphools answer your needs or sympathize in your vinyl plight (we have ALL spent some time in vinyl hell, I assure you :wink:).  Whether the questions has to do with 'synergy', turntable or cartridge selection, record cleaning, more arcane stuff like capacitive and resistive loading and the like - your posts will be fielded successfully here. 

Don't forget to peruse the archives for years of discussions that might relate to your needs...it's a great resource to have around :thumb: 

Regards, John / TheChairGuy

I am just musing over John's introduction.  My school won the NCAA March Madness last week.  John's school won last year.  He was a senior when 'Nova won for the first time.  His school closed the next day in 1985 for partying.  Mine did not.  We are the same age.  Just feeling nostalgic when we had good discussions here about all the little tweaks.  Plasticlay, anyone? :D

I miss you, John, aka the Chairguy.  God rest your soul and your bandana. :angel:

"Plasticlay, anyone?"  shouldn't that read "Plasticlay, everyone!"   JohnTCG is still missed, but I'd like to add that you've done a fine job in his stead.  Thanks, and keep up the good work.
