2013 October - Phil G.


Vintage Hi-Fi!

Bring all your Old gear and see if it still works!

Well most of it did….


Phil says….


Held at my place but really made possible by everyone joining in and bringing along equipment.

Firstly thanks to PeterA for being Chef-of-the-Day, we had a very good turnout so thanks for waiting on equipment swap-arounds.

I for one was pleasantly surprised how good everything sounded and we only managed to blow-up one pair of speakers – ops sorry Rhett.

I think we got away with that one as he’d brought along his $40 finds – otherwise it could have been awkward JJ

PS: did you spot what I got up to! I held a monthly meet without using any of my own gear – sneaky.

Not really, I’m just proving to those who’ve not held a meet yet you do not need the most expensive or up-to-date equipment or if you get member involvement – any equipment at all – food for thought.
