It was actually  :teach: Imagine CSI meets classical composers. The prof was incredibly interesting (and well... 'learned').

We left straight after the talk as we realized that there is no way to get though an old people scrummage for free tea & cookies  ;D  ;D  ;D


The past, the present and the future walk into a bar. It was tense.  :nutter:

I think Vivaldi's organ was prettier, it was decorated with the Italian flag.  You can listen to him holding it to attention here:  https://youtu.be/8Ss3zHwXkFI

Gently stroke your member as the music reaches a climax and let the joy gush forth

Amazing Cape autumn weather, cloud-free, not a breath of wind, got to 24 deg after lunch
Twittering birds
Lots of visitors
Achim's stunning shady courtyard created an excellent vibe
More dealers than ever
Food and drink, wine-tasting
System sessions every 30 mins inside to listen to the very best

Our sincere thanks to Achim and Joel for pulling out all the stops to make it a memorable event

There were several women there.  One had dreadlocks and spoke English (see bottom RHS pic), the lady in the bottom row middle was very friendly.  Andre, Jacques and Dean behaved themselves impeccably. All consumed over and above the regular amount of boerewors rolls

Was a faire with good vibe and sales by the looks of it. Achim and Joel had a steady stream of takers for the demo's

Chris Clarke and Jozua Hugo did sterling work at the "grill face" - thanks gentlemen


Achim was gracious host as always

Having a LP collection seem to be like having "black gold" stashed away.

I was surprised by the high prices of some of the second hand LP's.  By the looks of it,  it did not deter the buyers.

A real audiophile will eventually end up with the ARC Ref stuff..
