About Me

Retired Navy and Pennsylvania College of Technology. My wife of 40 years is a retired RN. I have always had a passion for audio. My father gave me his portable am/fm/sw radio when I was eight years old and I used to lay awake at night listening to an am station out of Chicago which I can remember as 890am. My first duty station after recruit training was in Yokosuka, Japan aboard the 7th Fleet Flagship. When I went to the Navy Exchange the very first time, I thought I had died and gone to "Audio Heaven". There were these beautiful silver faced Marantz, Sansui, Pioneer, Kenwood and Technics component pieces which sounded nothing like my old am/fm/sw radio. My first audio system was a Kenwood KR-6400 receiver, Sony TC-177SD cassette deck, Garrard Zero 100c TT , Sansui SP-2500 speakers and Koss headphones. Listening to Jethro Tull, Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd and other great rock bands of that era turned me into an audioholic. Like everybody else on this site "man, it would be awesome to have all my audio equipment back which I've had over the years". After many, many, many systems over the years and getting up there in age, I didn't think that I would ever buy any more equipment. Was I ever wrong. Just moved to Florida (June 2019) from Pennsylvania and the first thing I did was buy a new huge home theater system: Yamaha MX-A5200, CX-A5200, CD-S3000, LG 75" 4K UHD TV, Sony 4K UHD Bluray player, (2) HSU VTF-15H MKII powered subs, (2) GoldenEar Super Sub X's, (7) GoldenEar Aon 3's and (4) DefTech Pro Monitor 1000's for the height channels. All I can say is "OMG, the walls just might crumble!!!!". To top off my spending spree, I just received my new Emotiva XPA-2 300wpc amplifier to power my newest addition to "my room", Klipsch RF-7's. I'm hoping to spend all my money on audio and when I die, only having $5.00 left. My only real regret was selling my mint condition Akai Gx-747dbx reel to reel and 40 years of amazing  10 inch recordings. The moment I said yes to that sale, my heart sank and I regret doing it every day. Did I mention the pristine record collection that also went? Not now, I starting to tear up.
