Apologies Dr Bunsen, I'm not really known for my sense of humour, and people might find me a little sensitive.

I'm not a pirate or anything remotely related to one, I'm John Rackham. It's not funny that some seem to think that I could anyway be anyway anything to do with that idiot on HFWW.

I asked the possibility of a personal meeting, so I think it's time to introduce myself, at least in a nutshell. I'm 46, living in Budapest. I have a degree in economics, but working in the IT business for 22 years in the same company. I'm married for 24 years with the same woman (what a boring life, isn't it?). We have a son (17) and a doughter (15). Music was always very important for me, and now that our company is growing rapidly, I can spend on it at last. I've found NVA somewhere around 2010 when I bought a used AP50 with SSC and LS3 for my Marantz player and Tannoy d80 speakers. Of course I didn't have the slightest idea about the sound, but I "bought the story". It was such a big step up after my Sony amp and "Idunno" cables, that now there was no question what should I buy. The current setup: Isotek Titan One, NVA BMU, Auralic Aries, AQ diamond USB, Chord 2Qute, TIS, TCS, TIS, A80, TSCS, Cube1.

...Between my homes I currently have a number of different set ups, with the main one being a Techdas AF1 TT, Audio Note Ongaku, Acapella High Violoncello speakers. My second is a classic Krell - Wilson Audio affair...
:text-worthless:
Amy chance of you posting some photos of your pleasantly unusual and certainly not run of the mill gear (maybe in a different thread)?

Even better, any chance of popping round one evening for a listening session?

Welcome Kellerist, I'm pretty new HFS too but it seems OK to me so far. There's a lot of hifi knowledge here and not too much, er, negativity that permeates some forums :grin:
