Wednesday 8th May 2019

Nine enthusiasts (including one from Australia)
One computer
One Raspberry Pi
One DAC
Two speakers
Three power amplifiers
One (valve) pre-amp
One buffer stage
Forty-five pieces of music
All the cables and connectors

Allowed us to go through a careful listening session, at the end we decided the valve pre-amp really did shine

Monday 17th June.  A brilliant winter's day.  Having a braai, a couple of dops and listening to Ramsey's undoubtedly advanced system

Thanks to Ramsey (Row 1, left picture in the centre)

Thanks to all who came

Row 3 on the right is a teflon cone or amplifier support filled with concentrated oil

Was a good afternoon, in the company of Ramsey, the Chrises and some new acquaintances. The system at Audio Tweak sounds quite remarkable. The improvements I heard since I was last there were nothing short of astonishing.

Thanks for the arrangement guys. Nice to see everyone again. Quick question, what software is Ramsey using for streaming his audio?

Hardware is by SOtM, and the software is based around Logitech Media Server / Squeezelite.
