Introduction

I have just recently purchased my first turntable, but am an avid audiophile and have a great zest for all things high fidelity.

What was the first record you ever owned?

I'm sure my parents gave me some back in the 80's that I don't recall; but the first one I purchased was "OVERTURES" (William Tell, Fra Diavolo, Zampa, Donna Diana) - SCHERCHEN, VSOO - WESTMINSTER WST-14031. The second was the 2009 re-release of The Beatles' "Abbey Road". 180 gram virgin vinyl... sexy.

What are your top 5 albums of all time?

I'm probably not the best person to ask this question, as I am not an "album" fanatic, but more of a fidelity fanatic. But my top five owned albums are: The Wrath of Kahn (awesome awesome mix, and much better on vinyl than digital), Abbey Road, Songs in the Key of Life, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Songs from the Big Chair

Do you DJ, play in a band or have a music project? If so, what do you call yourself?

I've been trying to start a surround sound music label for high definition audio recordings. It's registered as CBTTF Records, but hasn't yet recorded anything.

Analog or Digital?

Both. I am a big fan of the high resolution audio codecs being used mostly in blu ray, DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD. But I detest cd audio. I have found that the richness of vinyl records produce a much more pleasing experience than crappy digital recordings.

Why did you join this group?

I'd like to meet some like-minded people. Sometimes it's very hard to meet people who understand the interest in vinyl or high fidelity audio of any kind. And trying to explain it is right out...
