Hello...

Post by longgone » Thu Jul 13, 2017 3:48 am

Hello everyone... I like this forum and I've been here almost every day. I've been reading the past posts and learning and enjoying what you have here. A beautiful thing. You have been a terrific help for me to move through the Linn and LP12 world. I have a very nice set of Keilidhs that I've had since the late 1990s. I never had a turntable since the late 1970s. And no CD player, either, until about 2006. And no computer (until about 2005). I started to upgrade my audio gear, slowly (surprised?), around '07 and a turntable was not even a consideration. At that time I wasn't aware of Linn products. I knew nothing about Linn except for the Keilidhs. And I liked them and the Linn logo. Still more years went by before the dream of a record player entered my mind. It took a while to act and I did some research and the Keilidhs and the Linn logo influenced me toward a used LP12. That first LP12 came to me around 2011. I loved it. Another one replaced it around 2014. I love that one, too. And I added another one last month. Guess what? I'm lovin' it, too. I was chuckling to myself, today, while I was reading on the forum and flashing back to the 70s when we used to put coins on the head shells to improve the sound, the only record cleaner was a brush, maybe, dust bunnies on the stylus were common and huge, the get togethers to play records became legends, and like all of you, still letting the good times roll.

Great to finally have you jump from 'reader' to 'poster'
