Best wishes,



Didn't like the current music trends much.
Started to lose interest in serious listening.
Get married and spend time working on house.
First child arrives and damages turntable.
CD begins to look a sensible alternative.
First CD player sounds disappointing compared to lowly TD150.
Loose even more interest, and take up building remote control planes.
Third generation CD player now sounding nicer, and interest re-kindled.
Give up flying planes, spending to much time repairing the things.
CD collection grows and LPs go. Lots of extra space and wife happy.
Enthusiasm returns and start building speakers again, wife not happy.

20 years on and well developed CD playing system now sounds much better to me, than budget vinyl system. No regrets any more..
