DC Hi-Fi Group Meeting – March 19, 2022

The March 19th meeting of The DC H-iFi Group found forty like-minded persons of the audiophile ilk traipsing from all over to the Alexandria, Va. location. This was the “CD is not Dead” meeting featuring the new Gold Note CD-1000 Mk II. I did not know that the CD dying was a thing. We have been giving away hundreds of CDs at every meeting from the Classical collection of about 12,000 CDs donated to the club. John Gatski still gives away a few special CDs at every meeting that he collects on… Read More

January 2022 Meeting – SOTA Turntables

It was a bitter cold early Saturday when I headed down to Rockville from Baltimore. A snowstorm gave just a glancing blow with barely an inch of snow. Roads were clear and dry, making travel easy.

DC Hi-Fi Group Meeting—February 29, 2020

It was a big Leap. I think half, or it just seemed like it, of the club’s membership squeezed into Russ Katz’s townhouse—home of The Vinyl Revivers.  Russ has been a corporate member of the DC Hi-Fi Group from the beginning and is a big supporter of the club. Hosting a club meeting takes a lot of work and Russ has done many.  Be sure to thank Russ and Roslyn at the next gathering. It was a beautiful day, a little chilly, but anything above freezing in February around here is a… Read More
