Despite the bureaus prediction of a lot of rain, the day turned out overcast and cool with just a slight drizzle.

And despite the club Secretaries emails advising of a 1pm start, someone *cough, me* decided to show up at 12.

I tell ya, ya just can't tell some people can ya :D

Oh well. Means I got to take some pics of David's system before everyone else showed up.

Mmmm his speakers, so smooth, shiny and red.

I believe I heard someone mention that the Devialet amplifier has some trickery in it that 'adapts' to the speakers for improved bass ?

Whatever VooDoo it does, there was more bass than I think most of us were expecting.

In amongst the 30 odd people that attended we had a few new members show up.

Welcome Guys, Hope to see you again :)

There was a plethora of nibbles to nibble. So nibble we did :)

Chips, nuts, grapes, muffins, cookies (BIG cookies).

Lots of cakes, All sorts of cakes.

And yes, yes there was indeed cheese cake.

Nig.
