Bonjour
« on: July 24, 2019, 11:20:30 PM »
Hi there.
I've been interested in audio since I was 16 years old and I am now 71 years old.
Still interested in audio, but I am a lot less demanding when it comes to high fidelity.
In the past 55 years, I've owned so many brands and type of equipment that I
would need more space...
Right now I only use my Grace Digital Mondo with a Cambridge 2.1 subwoofer and a pir of Sony
two way speakers. I also have a Schiit Fulla 2 ans SYS for switching from laptop to Internet radio.
This is (Of course) for near field listening, ambiant music while I work on the compter and as well in my office.
Enough power for my need.
At times, I am surprise how good it sounds.
In the past few years my requirement for high fidelity as been much more reasonnable.
I do have other audio stuff, which I will talk about later...
I'm sure many of you remember me from Audio Circle, under the same name.
I am still on planet Vietnam, but I am now sponsering my wife (Paper work - half done)
and we should be leaving Vietnam (Sniff, sniff for me anyway) at the end or middle of next year.
Well, that's it for now.
I enjoy music, it keep's me busy relaxing.

Hi,
how do you add a list of the equipment you own ?
I see it's at the bottom of each post, but under a solid line.

Note : I will have a problem posting pictures,
because of your 600Kb maximum ?

Tap on your name, then modify profile, then scroll down to signature and enter equipment. Yes, I realize about the 600 kB. When I took over, I increased it by 100 kB. I really donít know the trick to reduce the kb in a photo. Our prior co-administrator who really new this stuff has left this forum. Maybe a wise and willing photo poster can chime in. Iíll also consider increasing the kB size. It would cost me some 💵

To resize a picture if you have MS Paint, just load the picture and press the resize button at top left. 

Start at 50% and save as a new file to see the new file size.

Hi,
usually refugees flee their country because of war,
well for me, Audio Circle was at time a war zone.

Hi Don,
thanks for the welcome.
I am doing well here, but it's not the same for my Vietnamese wife.
She want and she will go to freezing cold Canada (Montreal, Quebec)
because I am sponsering her, therefore, next year we will be in my home country.
Too bad for me, I like it here and good for here, that's what she wants.
I have a lot of (Too much) audio stuff that I want to sell,
but Vietnamese don't want unknown brands
like GR Reserach, Rythmik, etc...
Sooooo I will have to carefully pack everything and sell it in Canada.
I want now to keep the minimum,
my days of searching for the best of the best audio system is over.
When I can downsize all mu audio belonging, I will post.
Thanks.
