There is a meeting this evening.  It will start at 8.00 so nobody need get withdrawal symptoms from missing a meeting.  Suitably upmarket equipment will be brought along, including some small r i b b o n s (similar to these - at least the wooden part...)

May 19th saw the golden ears brigade evaluate some equipment.  The YouTube video will show how dedicated we are - it lasts 2 mins 47 seconds but the sound had to be changed.  Many of the audience kept popping into the kitchen for another spring roll, samoosa or cup of coffee.  Intense listening is hard work

Rodney- you were missed - would have been nice to have had some of the Cape Town audio aristocracy there… 

The evening demonstrated that even with a small system, great fun is possible.

You mistake the serious faces due to the intense concentration on the music.  One guy at the back realises there is a GoPro flashing away and waves.  Maybe I should have disabled the led
