Talking The New England SummerSweatFest in Clinton MA Sat August 18th

3 or so times a year a bunch of us have a New England get together out in Clinton Mass; our next one is next Saturday August 18th.

The facility is in an old mill building where our hosts (Frank & Peter) have a woodworking and laser etching shop set up - so there's plenty of space.

While mostly folks from AudioKarma we do have others frequently attend that aren't active on that site - and I'd like to take this opportunity to invite like minded souls over here at diyaudio.

There are no fees involved - people are welcome to attend and bring stuff to buy/sell/trade as they like. There's always a wide range of stuff - from junque to treasures (each open to your own interpretation of course).

We'll set up a variety of listening rooms.

One room is dedicated to mostly vintage tube gear.

At one event I did a listener comparison of two identical Pioneer SX-850 receivers - one completely stock and the other recapped.

This event I'm going to set up a system with a phono and CD player with the same material / different formats - for people to compare.

People should feel free to set up gear or just to check it all out.

We encourage everyone to bring some food/drinks/snacks for others to share.

More details can be found on AK at:

And the next day will be the MIT flea market - which will make for a tinkerers paradise weekend .

Spouses invited, if you dare - I hope some of you will be able to swing by.

I'd like to have gone, but I read this a few months too late...

How did it go? Anything interesting happen? Do you anticipate a winter event?

Talking October 20th GTG in Clinton, MA

Todd,
Funny you should mention it - this event went quite well with about 35 atendees. Quite good for a summer event.

Now the news - we are having another GTG at the same location on Saturday October 20th.
Hope you can make it to that one!
