My name is Wijnand Kuijt, for more than 25 years I have been collecting and selling tubes and classical records. When everybody got 'digital' I started collecting classical records.. I have a catalogue of more then 6200 collectable classical records, I reside in Lelystad, The Netherlands and I'm a keen audiophile as you can see on my page with my equipment. I mostly play analog music, no CD's, no hi-res downloads, just analog records. This doesn't mean I don't like 'digital' music, just never got started with digital.
I love tubes and I'm using them with my Jericho 08 hornloudspeakers (105dB). I use the Line Magnetic 219 SET tube amplifier and DIY 2 x 12 watt EL84 pushpull amplifier. To play the vinyl I use the Transrotor Fat Bob with Jelco 9" and TMD and 3 motorunits from Transrotor combined with a Dr. Fuss powersupply. And a restored Thorens TD166 MKII with Rega RB251. Also lots of cartridges like Van den Hul, Audio Technica AT150MLX, AT3mono/LP, Nagaoka MP110, Benz Micro 2,5 mV and a Sumiko Bluepoint Special. All in a 'Phonodude' MK3 phono amplifier with 6X4, 5755 and 6N3P-DR tubes. Wonderful sound! Also in my demo room a totally 100% rebuild Quad ESL57
