Hello from Just Another Minnesota Audiophile (JAMA)


I was recently steered to these hallowed halls by another Haven member recently and wanted to introduce myself. You may recognize my nom de plume from other online forums. My name is Peter and I have been interested in music and related technologies since I was a small lad. I cut my teeth on my father's 1965 era Harmon Kardon all-in-one amp/pre/tuner/turntable with matching H/K speakers. My interest in music and audio equipment led to a career in my 20's as a small town radio station announcer in MN, NM and KS.

More recently, I've earned my way by supporting hardware and software technology in the corporate world. I also have a strong interest in MCM furniture and architecture (having grown up during the 1960's and 1970's in household furnished exclusively in MCM furnishings).

Marsh Sound Design amp/pre pair driving Magnepan MG-12QR speakers via ANTICABLE speaker wire with assistance from a GoldenEar ForceField 3 sub.

Here you will see photos from my current living room where I do most of my listening/viewing these days. The last photo is of my (somewhat) vintage setup in my master bedroom. The SANSUI AU-317 was manufactured the fall of 1978 when I was a senior in high school.


Thanks for having me.

Peter W.

Nice to meet you - welcome! And I want to thank you for posting a photo that shows the tangle of power cords on the floor- I can't relate to (or rather, I can't emulate) the perfectly neat setups so many people show!
