Hi I'm new here but I know a few of the regular posters from another forum. I'm more of a vinyl collector with basic knowledge of equipment, although I like to dabble in cartridge loading and I'm a sucker for experimenting with new styluses with different profiles.  I'm fortunate to work from home and get the opportunity to listen near field to vinyl for 8 hours most days while working at my pc  :D. As you will see from my system profile I have a collection of vintage hifi and admit to being somewhat of a hoarder :roll:

Hi Tim :wave:,

Welcome to the Vinyl circle at AC. Lots of good folks hang out here. I'm meeting two of them (Mr & Mrs Pumpkinman) next week at the rock n roll HOF. :thumb: Lots of interesting threads too. I will be most interested in your postings in "what LPs have you listend to recently" thread. Our musical preferences have a lot in common. Nice systems!

Thanks for the invite Jim. That sounds like an enjoyable day/evening--record stores, food, beverages, music and good company. My memories of Houston from the 90s (besides the humidity :lol:), is that it has some of the best restaurants in the country and there was/is a row of them on Westheimer. I'll bet you know some of the best that are known only to locals :thumb:. I'll definitely let you know if my travels take me to your neck of the woods.

That would be fantabulous.  Cheers.

Thanks you for the warm welcome. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and will enjoy reading the earlier postings and hopefully make a positive contribution to the circle.  :wave:

Laura - I'm currently listening to a compilation of British Acid Folk which Steven Collins of the Owl Service put together which I found here under the 7th April entry http://www.rifmountain.com/
It will give you a good insight into some of the more elusive Brit Acid Folk bands from the golden era of the late 60s to early 70s.

I've seen Steven and the Owl Service a few times, their best performance being at the Green Man Festival. The legendary Alison O'Donnell of Mellow Candle has collaborated recently with the Owl Service on a few songs.

I had hoped to be at the Cropedy Convention http://fairportconvention.com/guide.php  this weekend to see Fairport Convention again and perhaps get a chance to chat with Judy Dyble (Femvox on 1st Fairport LP and of Trader Horne fame, along with many other outputs), but alas some health problems have quashed that notion.

Hi I'm new here but I know a few of the regular posters from another forum. I'm more of a vinyl collector with basic knowledge of equipment, although I like to dabble in cartridge loading and I'm a sucker for experimenting with new styluses with different profiles.  I'm fortunate to work from home and get the opportunity to listen near field to vinyl for 8 hours most days while working at my pc  :D. As you will see from my system profile I have a collection of vintage hifi and admit to being somewhat of a hoarder :roll:

Welcome, what does your set-up consist of? Post some pics.

Hello All, Im also new here and a vinyl junkie. Been listening to vinyl since the way early 60's and have managed to collect 4300+ records over the years. I prefer new vinyl but will get into a used record if I know where it's been. I have all analogue,vintage gear with some since it was new.

One day soon I'll post some pics of what I call "My Vintage Junk".
Looks like this will be a regular home for me since I do 85% of my listening with vinyl, the other 15% I'd have to say is tape, both cassette and Open Reel.

Hi All --after 30 years or so I am digging up some vinyl that has been stored away --now all I have to do is put together a system to listen with

Since this is for lovers of vinyl  I post a few pictures of the JVC cutting center in Los Angeles-- a lot of vinyl was mastered there

Hello guys.

New guy here. Just looking to get into vinyl. I have been lurking for a little bit, just reading the "Newbie" and "Cleaning Secrets" threads.

It's overwhelming, everything that goes into proper vinyl care and playback.  :o

Anyway, just here to learn a bit and hopefully get to some great music hunts and listening sessions.  :D
