Oops, don't know what happened there, but the message should have read about my first Hi Fi system. Does anyone remember their first taste of hi fi? I had one of those rack systems (Toshiba) which was not really hi fi at all. So I dumped it and went for separates. The amp I got was a NAD 3020B, a Dual turntable and a pair of A & R 18s speakers completed the line up. Speaker cables were QED. This was a great sound after the rack and lasted me for a few years. In fact the amp and turntable are still working in a friends system in Spain. Their own cd player and speakers of course. That amp has got to be one of the all time bargains.
