Anudder Phono Stage Bake-off

Unread post by Dr Bunsen Honeydew » Tue Aug 08, 2017 9:24 pm

I am putting this up for Jamie (Jayman67) as he asked me to provide the kit from Uddersfield. Though as I am not attending I can't get the Big Bastard down to him.

Provisionally Sunday 27th August in Pulborough (nr Brighton) looking for max of 3 other attendees to those already going who have phono stages.

Jamie will give all future inf about it when it is confirmed and what is going to be there. Post here or PM him at AoS if you want to go.

Cheers for that, we hope to do justice for everyone, just a pity my lounge isn't bigger and we could have a few more listeners but we will give as honest a review as possible.

Ah! found the origin of the expression, I always wondered.
