Hello from Kentucky

Post by milsap195 » Fri Mar 07, 2014 1:20 pm

It's great to finally get on the forum after a couple months of trying! I look forward to participating in the forum and hope to learn a lot. I live just outside Louisville and am fairly new to audio. The system I currently have consists of a pair of cherry 180's, Emotiva xsp1, oppo 105 and some Gallo Classico 4 towers.

Thanks for having me!

Purchased my first piece of HiFi about two years ago. After hearing a pair of Martin Logan's demoed at my local best buy, I was blown away. My first purchase was an emotiva xpa-2 and hooked it up to my onkyo 757 along with some Polk speakers that I had. It was ok for a starter set up. I became really curious about tubes because I wanted a warmer sound and liked the look. I next purchased a Vincent 236mk intergrated and really enjoyed the sound and rolled my first tubes along with purchasing some Gallo CL-4. Last fall I had the chance to pick up a used set of cherries for a great price. I loved the look and the versatility of the amps. That is quick synopsis.
