Hello and welcome to Librivox!

You must have a good set-up because everything's great! :clap: Tech specs are correct, and sound is nice and clear!
I'm only a bit worried about the volume which is a bit on the loud side.
If you are using Audacity, a visual hint for a nice volume is when the wave line peaks around the 0.5 mark, and not all the way up/down, because then it can lead to clipping, which can cause sound distortion.

If needed you can lower the input volume of your microphone just a little (from the microphone slider in Audacity) so that you record in a lower volume.

There's a small program the spouse of a LibriVoxer developed to check the tech settings. If you're game, you can download it and use it to check the volume and other settings. It's here: http://cgjennings.ca/checker/
Use the latest version, which I believe is 0.95. The volume information is in the Information tab. We aim for 89 dB, but anything between about 87 and 91 is good.

Otherwise, as long as your wave line peaks around the 0.5 mark, you'll be fine!

Now, browse the Readers Wanted forums for projects that interest you, and have fun recording! :D
