Looking forward to this new form of communication for our hobby and interest. Anthony Doman a seasoned journo and Lance a long time distributer and manufacturer of that great turntable. Should be an interesting meeting: 19h30 this evening. See joining details above

A very big thank you to Lance Dixon from Sounds Natural and our interviewer, Anthony Doman for an enlightening ZOOM talk last night

Should you wish to explore what Sounds Natural have for the refined music lover, please visit his Facebook page:  lance Dixon or else visit http://www.soundsnatural.co.za/

This is the link to the recording

A word about the Zoom recording - as you can see, the first 8 minutes are missing.  It was recording from the outset, when someone joined (named "Guest"), the screen went blank for a second and the recording paused.   At the end of the session, the recording is "converted" but the part prior to when Guest joined is missing and I don't know how to retrieve it

An email to Zoom told me that a visitor tried to join with an outdated version of Zoom.   So the message it, please ensure you have version 5.0X when you run it

That was a very good interview! I was surprised that there were not more attendees, considering that the even had no regional limits.

Thanks to you and the others that joined the meeting. Guys, please send you comments about it to Chris and post here if you are on the forum.

I thought that it went well, Anthony did a fine job as interviewer! so thank you Anthony and Chris for organizing.

I think that this could grow as people get to know about it, Hopefully it can be a monthly meet. If the topics are interesting and informative, then the numbers will come. Also it will need frequent advertising posts leading up to each event.

Cheers.

Lance.

There were 12 visitors to our Zoom meeting this evening, including a surprise visitor from Currys PC World in Leicester in England.  He asked some questions about selling in the UK since 90% of their products come from China and are aimed at the mass market

Thank you to Heine (Drifter) for an excellent presentation and carefully going through the range of Bentley speakers.   One aspect that shines through is that they are really good value for money and since they are made here in South Africa, will probably stay that way

Thanks to the Cape Town hifi club for the session. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Hopefully Covid will allow us to have an actual demo session somewhere in the future.

Many great products had very fragile beginnings.

As a club it is therefore essential that we support, expose and promote the local audio industry.

Take care
