    Hi friends

    I am a greenhorn in this forum, but I was luckily busiyng myself with music recording/reproduction and audio electronics for almost my whole life - not only in my leisure time but also professionally.

    My 4.0-channel AV system was quite large until some years ago - Studer/JVC/Panasonic/Sony DAT recorders, Studer and Yamaha FM tuners, Studer and Revox cassette recorders, yadda-yadda-yadda. I hat to shrink it somewhat; for the time being it only consists of an old HP laptop running Linux, a Sony BD player, a Technisat DAB/FM tuner, a Yamaha DSP-A5 amp and a pair of Studer A2 active speakers.

    My office system is mostly used for archiving and transfer purposes and consists of a Revox B710 MkII cassette recorder, a Sony DTC-ZE700 DAT recorder, an Audio Linear TD-4001 record player with SME 3009-III, Shure V15-V and a little Behringer Phono-Pre, as well as an old Technics SU-A40 control amp that needs a bit of TLC. I have a pair of Philips RH585 MFB speakers patiently waiting for new capacitors that should be included in this system; currently I use small Yamaha YST-M7 speakers (with surprisingly nice sound at low listening levels), and several different AKG, Beyer, Jecklin, Revox and Sennheiser headphones.

    In the basement, a Studer A812 TC, a Studer A710 and a Revox G36 tape recorders are waiting for better days, together with a bunch of other devices and loudspeakers.

    When you have got that much electronics in your home, there is always something to be repaired, upgraded or modified...

    Kind regards
