DCHFG January 2019 Meeting

With all the excitement of the Holidays and CAF 2018 behind us, DCHFG members congregated to trade stories about their latest gear acquisition and other Hi-Fi topics.

DCHFG President, John Gatski, brought the meeting to order and provided updates on possible future meetings and events. We are still hopeful that we will be able to visit the Furnace Records Plant and local audio legend Conrad Johnson in 2019.

DIY subgroup co-chairman, Paul Elliot, gave a presentation on the latest solder tools and techniques and demonstrated the mini solder tool he is now using. Chris Barker was present but resting on his DIY laurels.

Dr. Vinyl, aka Jose Ramirez, updated members on the $3,800 Sutherland Phono Loco phono stage.

Russ Katz, president of The Vinyl Revivers, presented a preview of the Dr. Feikert line of turntables with a focus on the $3,500 Volare.
