Hello, TAS here. I just joined today.
My audio background is in record production and tube microphone design. I've been chasing HiFi for the last 45 years or so. Yes, I wish I had some of my old gear (!), and yes, there are many pieces of modern gear that are better. I have several systems, but my Rogers LS 3/5a speakers have stayed with me since I got them in the late 70's. I recently retired and have been going through my "stuff" to see what works, what doesn't: what stays, and what goes. This has rekindled my interest in tube amps, and I've might just spring for an OTL tube amp.
