Hi there!

This is a great site and a great source of info for good music! Been checking out for well over a year... And finally managed to register.

Just a heads up - it took a couple of times to register. The email activation link does't always come through and in that case there is no way to contact using that log in... You're sort of stuck in a 'no permission' purgatory unable to view polls or try and get a new activation email sent out. But after getting another email set up I'm finally in!

Whoop!

I got into surround music visiting the states and I bought a Rolling Stones magazine that had a SACD sampler with it. This site has enabled me to find out many new albums that I was unaware of so thanks for the reviews!

I shall do the same with my limited collection.

Cheers

Will

I just joined, Thanks. I have a Technics SA 8000x I just bought. I really like the 70's stuff but this is my first quad and so far I really like it. I hooked it up to my 15" Lafayette Goodmans and it sounds great! But needs the pots cleaned. CIMG3136.JPG CIMG3137.JPG

Hi Folks,

I usually hang out on audiokarma but this forum keeps coming up more and more in my google searches, so here I am after lurking for a couple of months. I'm really into restoring vintage amplifiers, mostly Sansui from 60s and 70, but also other brands. I'm also into restoring reel-to-reel machines and archiving prerecorded tapes into digital format. I dabled with 5.1 when it first came out and then went back to 2-channel ever since. Well, I've had this growing bug to try one of the sansui quad offerings. A long time ago I bought a Sansui QS-1 (which I know has limited capability) but I need to repair it and haven't got it going yet. Lately I got more and more curious about the QRX9001 and an interesting amp to restore... lots of things for me to fix up inside ;). I almost grabbed a QSD-2, which I understand has a similar setup to the X001 circuits. Well I just bought the 3-band QSD-1 instead..... and well, that's that.... I'm hooked. What is mind blowing is how well sounds get steered around when I watch regular 2channel movies and tv shows. I can hear I need to align the QSD-1 (left is a bit lower than right), so I will do that shortly and toy with the debated bleed resistors which I can see at the inputs and outputs of the QSD-1. I'm a bit fan of getting rid of electrolytic caps in signal path so that is on the cards too. I have some experience with characterizing transistors and circuits, and will also toy with lowering the noise floor of the QSD-1, which is acceptable but audible.

Additionally, I'm very excited about the Involve Surround Master (and yes, I've read the various threads...); I'm getting one of those as soon as they come out with the new case (which the chaps over at Involve told me is 3 months (which they said means 6 months)).

Cheers from San Francisco
based on my experience you will not be disappointed with the Surround Master. :)

I have one request of new (and not so new) members ... a pet peeve actually. Why not include your location in your profiles? Nobody is asking for your address or phone number. You don't even have to post your city if you are paranoid or in witness protection. This is especially important when you are asking for help. This is a global forum, and there are different voltages to consider ... not to mention currency issues if you are buying, selling, or asking for opinions about the value of things. If you are in the United States, please don't assume that we will know that if you don't tell us.
