On Saturday, August 20, 2022, we had our late summer meeting at Ken Wolff’s beautiful home. Mark Schneider of Linear Tube Audio (LTA) was on hand to provide the latest news on the locally produced tube Hi-Fi components. We listened to the Z40+ Integrated.

The demos also included the new SOTA Pyxis and Acrux phono preamplifiers and a SOTA turntable. I have had my SOTA turntable since 1985 and upgraded… Read More
Hot, Hot, Hot. It was not just the weather on Saturday afternoon at our fearless leader’s (John Gatski) home for the “All Things Must Pass” demo.

Most vinyl sales were brisk, both used and new LP’s, CD’s, and even cassette tapes were available. Lots of vintage gear was available too. The beautiful weather kept the big crowds away but there was a steady stream of participants. An enjoyable time for like-minded people interested in good music.

Dave Raden’s house is on a magical lot with one thousand azaleas just past their peak but still beautiful. The main club business was to announce the June 25th Summer Vinyl Event at the Garrett Park Town Hall. Past events have been successful for the sellers and for attracting new club members. There is always a lively turnout. Our club members have been treated to the evolution… Read More
