Never given an opinion at a GTG.

Have given a directive or three but never an opinion.

 

Directive?

 

Err, excuse me, can I get a word in here?

Your a Banana bender so your automatically forgiven for a multitude of sins.

Where would we be without Queensland eh?

 

No dumping grounds for all our waste, no repository for all the Murray Darling river system's water that should feed the states below it(NSW/VIC/SA) in that nice friendly place called Cubby Station, no place for our nice friends in India to build a railway and a port that will bring untold joy to a few thousand Hasonites up at Gladstone and  separate the 'living coral reef' part of the Great Barrier Reef from the future 'dead bit'.

 

Tina is acceptable. She was on the stage at Splendour recently and everyone wondered who the hell was the chick with the big voice?

Certainly not losing the SOO for the 11th time in 12 years...

Nor somewhere that electricity,  rego, & just about anything else you would care to mention is significantly cheaper...

I'm surprised anyone would be surprised at this. Alcohol inhibits all senses and any conclusions drawn while under the influence can be suspect.

 

Meh...

I say a good drop is about five times and over more effective at improving the sound than some fancy cables.

Tina is acceptable as long as you don't have to hear her talk about herself. She was on the stage at Splendour recently and everyone wondered who the hell was the chick with the big voice?

 

Fixed that one for you. Same applies to Kate Cebrano

I also think audio/music  preferences can change with alcohol. Its the only explanation i can give for getting a group of blokes  who ordinarily have varied opinions to largely prefer rolled off  and bass heavy  music at GTG.  It could be simply  because  the hearing loss due to alcohol is greatest  in the sub-treble region and gear that would ordinarily  tittilate  the senses, sounds thinner  to the  well lubricated gentry.

 

Could this mean that proponents Single Ended Triode amps ( as an example) simply drink too much alcohol? :D:love

That pretty much explains why @djb requested Kamahl's Elephant song at the PMC presentation at CAV......after drinking half the beer that was meant for 25 people....:D (not to mention 10 sizes of pizza)

In Queensland we don't waste time counting the beer, we just drink it.

      A small intimate evening GTG was held on Wednesday with a few of the regulars : @:) al , @Martykt , @Red MacKay , @blybo the host of course and myself.
      Evening commenced with some top quality Wood fired pizzas and washed down with quality reds 
       
      al looks torn between taking a pic or diving for a slice !
       

       
      The rarest of rare occurences caught on camera - Red with a red ! (akin to my collecters item pic of @djb drinking water)
      He's thinking one more photo and things are turning ugly ! 
       

       
      @Martykt snaffling the last slice !
       

       
       
       
      Mine host chewing fat with al
       

       
      After dinner sat down to hear the aesthetically beautiful Spatial Hologram M3 Turbo S, quite a mouthful and a lot of speaker !
      we listened with a few good demo albums, (Air - Pocket Universe, Gotye - Making Mirrors) and there was a lot to like with the sound quality, two 15" woofers more than capably reproducing down very low and very nice non fatiguing sound overall !
       

       
      Here we see Red getting his head stuck in it's rear end ! 
       

       
      And have a gander at the size of these beauties !
       

       
      For those that lingered well into the early hours of the next morning (ahem Marty) we were treated to stunning home cinema with high definition from the JVC projecter providing razor sharp images.
      Photo in low light really doesn't capture how good it was in real life'

       
      So a highly enjoyable mid week evening with full credit to Neil for his exemplary hospitality ! 
       
      (and falling asleep on the cinema floor rather than turfing Marty and I out !) 
       
      @Marc got wind of this gig and declared it a "Non sanctioned GTG event' so hopefully no serious repercussions for blybo !

      Had a largish gathering on Saturday afternoon at evil Springs to celebrate Autumn and to reunite with my audio brethren ! 
       
      I was very cunning in my preparations nominating everyone to contribute in some form food wise, and boy did we have a feast on our hands!
       
      @Tubularbells most generously cooked up a 7.5kg Beef Brisket topped off with some 2.5kg (almost) Pulled Pork -
       
      Here we see the "Meat Maestro" in action massaging the meat into submission! 
      Couldn't even pick the meat up, it just fell apart was so tender!

       
      (Dog was never far away!!)
       
      @illusion also rose to the occasion and brought some freshly marinated Chicken wings and legs , as a bonus he even cooked them up himself !
      Beautiful flavors too.

       
      Unfortunately my normal photographer was otherwise occupied with trivial family matters (not naming anyone @:) al)  so very few quality shots to display of the attendees:
      @[email protected]@[email protected]@darth [email protected]@[email protected] [email protected]@Point [email protected]@Red MacKay and Doug Tipping.
       
      Smile for the camera - everyone !

       
      That means you @Sierra !!! 
       

       
      Hitchcock scene from Birds !
      All eyeing @djb waiting for an opportunity to strike ("he'll never see us coming!)
       

       
       
      Ultrasonic record cleaner Masterclass by TB with @Red MacKay & @joz 
      Brought up my records to flawless condition without a hint of crackle - pity no one else got a chance to have theirs cleaned ! 
       

       
      Unfortunately no pictorial evidence of numerous salads and desserts most generously brought along but was heartily demolished along with all the meat ! (gasp)
       
      Bugg3r all of system either but you've probably seen it enough times - here's one of The Wand recently fitted to my LP12 and sounding very nice too!
       

       
      So had a fantastic afternoon with a few kicking on till nearly 11pm - my thanks to everyone for making it such a success and all I need now is someone else to hold a GTG for a change ! 
      Nah, it's all good fun !
       
      P.S. We missed you Billy !

      Hello everybody!  You've seen the system showcased, now it is time to hear it.  (Refer Showcase your System MG20.7).
       
      This GTG will be held on Sunday 10 April starting at 2.00PM.  The most convenient way to get here would be by train to Richmond Station.  If you drive, there is a pay carpark at the head of the street, which should have spots available as there is no footy at the MCG on that day.  
       
      If you are into planar speakers, this is one of the best.  They will be expertly set up with DWM woofers by Bill McLean, who will come down all the way from Sydney to do the demo.
       
      Tea & coffee and basic nibblies will be provided.  You will need to BYO drink if you want anything more exotic.     
       
      Attendees will be limited to 15.  Attendees to this stage are:

      We are excited to soon be releasing our Nullaki Opus.  This loudspeaker replaces our previous flagship, Nullaki, and features considerable changes to the bass configuration and crossovers.  We are proud to say that it is a truly special loudspeaker, and quite an experience.
      We will be hosting an evening in Perth to present this model for the first time and are pleased to extend an invitation to all StereoNET members, as well as our Facebook fans.  This will be held early January, and we are currently awaiting venue confirmation.
       
      The listening will be complemented by some very nice Western Australian wines.
       
      If you would like to attend then please register your interest via reply to this thread or PM.

      I thought best to create it's own thread, rather than tag onto the 2015 thread.
       
      It will be big. Scary big.
       
      I expect most of the 'regulars' (and iregulars) will wanting to attend.
      So, start planning people. get those leave application requests in.
       
      I will be in touch with the Jones boy to confirm how many people his family's abode can cater for during the 2016 event.
       
      I remember 1 year there was 'bout 30 add, but that was quite a strain on resources like showers, water etc.
      We didn't seem to run out of alcohol though
       
      I know 2 people who will be there in 2016...

      So post your expressions of interest here, and we'll confirm how many blow-ins the Jones family expect they can stand to put up with in 2016.
