It's 5mins walk from my house. You can come up to here or follow directions below: Pass my house in Tennant Road, go over Mains Ave traffic lights and turn right at the next set of traffic lights into Aliwal Road and slow down. Oxford street is the first road to your left.

You don't need a newsletter to come, just turn up.  All audiophiles are welcome.  If you really and truly get lost, you can call Andre 0839811111 or Chris 0742392087

Route revision. Once you turned right at the Aliwal Road traffic lights (facing Main Road Wynberg), Oxford Street is the first road to your RIGHT - not left.

But if you turn the other left, you will reach the Main Road and have a selection of the lovely ladies that ply their wares

Thanks gents

Nice meeting all of you and I'm quite keen to listen to more equipment that cost more than my car.

Till the next meeting.

I had to skive off early to get some sleep before catching my redeye flight tomorrow morning, but I had sufficient time to meet some really interesting people and to rekindle old acquaintanceships. And, of course, to put faces to names. The introductions (great idea Rodney) were an eye-opener, certainly to me.

The turnout was mildly disappointing, given the buildup, but a couple of dozen (I think) is a good start. There's definite potential for gaining some insights and  some good ideas are in the pipeline.

Thanks, Chris and yourotherbrother Chris for herding us cats.

Thanks for a fantastic evening :clap:

Special thanks to chrisc for the lift home, keeping me from straying from the straight and narrow of course what with Kenilworth Main Road so close...
