Thought I would introduce myself and say hi.
Been kicking around the forum over the last couple of days and what a plethora of threads to keep one's head spinning (literally).
I have been viewing the Portable Amps, Post a pick of you RIg (got some serious stuff going on there, fair impressed), High End Audio which leads to my background
I used to work for Linn Hi-Fi many years ago in the playback section (speakers) a became accustomed to 'high end' audio equipment. I remember hearing their top of the range system £28k at the time 20yrs ago and thought wow! thats impressive. Finally secured employment with them and went on to have my own system. just when things could not get better Linn secured a contract with Loewe for a Loewe audio system. So team I was on got to build, test, listen, and view the Loewe gear. Due to family, kids, etc sold my system for £100 less than I paid for it 10yrs later!
So where did I go from there, no decent playback for my music I delved into earphones.
I Bought a pair of Shure SE530's and recently exchanged them for the SE535 through the product exchange scheme. Along with that I also got the remote cable which has been sent back after 10days due to fault . Then I pop in here and was literally blown away. Another world has open up and I'm caught in a vortex.
First thing I did was speak to Chris and get a set of custom cables made up - awaiting delivery
Next I started reading the Portable Amp section and goodness me, you guys know how to party! so just took delivery of a Fiio E7 (entry level I know, but hey, once I become an audiophile.....) and due to not having a spare cable for my Shure's I tried it with Apple Earbuds Wow again! I didn't think it would get much better, but it has.
2 things, the replacement cable from Shure arrives tomorrow, and can't wait to test the E7, and then I have the double dunter - Once I get Chris' custom custom cables, its time to jam once again.
So there you have a brief intro from me, and I look forward to joining you all in this new adventure.
