SoCal Gathering 2023

Options
It has been a few years since I hosted a gathering for Polkies in the Southern California area and I think it's about time we try to schedule another one. Posting this to get an interest check and figure out a good date to put on the calendar. Guessing this would happen after the holidays.

    Wow thanks John! So possibly an opportunity for forum members to hear fully modded 1.2TLs and L800s in the same room plus I still have the 2.3TLs.....for now.

    Plus a chance to compare Cds vs the Simaudio DAC.
