    Was this a secret event. Do we have to guess what the gear was in the pictures and what it sounded like?

    Yeah, another excellent get together, Steve. Good to see the regulars and some new faces. Like you, I now need to go and buy some of that music I heard.

    A big thank you to everyone who brought speakers, amps, TTs, R2Rs etc, especially as you had to lug them up a flight of stairs. Without you guys willing to take the risk of bringing some nice gear we wouldn't have a day like this.

    Roll on the next one!

    Great day Steve, good call, nice to see some new faces, to me anyway and ones I'd not seen for a while.
    Great tunes, nice to hear what other folks are listening to.

    Highlight for me was those old Avondale speakers and more recent Avondale power amp with Mick's valve pre and Micky's 301 TT. It worked well, discussed this with Barrington at the time and we agreed it was the best sound of the day.
