Hello, my name is Chris and I live in Phoenix AZ. I started collecting vintage audio a few years ago and I’ve recently begun a journey into DIY audio. I learned how to restore speakers with a ton of research and started looking for good deals locally. Everything I bought and restored was with the intention of keeping it but I kept finding new stuff that was one step better and learning more. I’m sure many here know how these things keep progressing. I’m currently working on two nice vintage Sony turntables and building a tube driven system composed of a of restored/upgraded vintage and DIY stuff with the guidance of a very helpful member of DIYaudio. I’m focused on building a set of custom Altec 2ways and while researching found this forum, so glad I did! Here’s a bunch of pictures of some of the evolution.
