A Wave of Responses From Event Attendees
So great! FYI, I ordered one of those digital microscopes if you guys ever need one. – Larry
Great event! Well done, Michael was exactly as expected, funny and interesting. I learned a lot, and of course Leslie’s venue (and Leslie) are great. – John
KUDOS! This was fantastic. -Stephane
A very good event. It was good seeing everybody. I don’t own a turntable but I still found it informative. Michael is entertaining! -Dave
I had a great time at the event. it was very nice getting to meet a genuine celebrity from the media that I have been reading for years.
His presentation was interesting as well as enlightening. I am afraid I am going to have to purchase his DVD on TT set-up which I
have threatened to do for a couple of years now. Fortunately for me, my table sets up fairly easily. It is a set and forget type of thing.
So I don’t do much in the way of tinkering. But none the less, I want to know if my unit is set up correctly or as correctly as possible so
that I know I am getting the best results possible. So, I will get the DVD and do a run through on my unit.
As for Michael’s overall presentation, in general I was impressed. If there had been more time and he had all of the equipment necessary
to complete the project fully and we could then hear by way of a playback the outcome of all his efforts, this would have been nice.
Given the circumstances and environment in which he had to work, I think it went fine. As for me I would have tried to stay for the second
or afternoon session, but could not because of other commitments. A great Saturday at SFAS. Do more of the same. Thanks for your help in putting this together. -Ron
Even though I don’t own a turntable or expect to get one any time soon, I wanted to attend the Michael Fremer event to learn more about how to set-up a turntable. I would say I learned a lot about how to do this and I found Fremer both informative, but humorous in his lecture, which made learning all the more interesting. I would also like to thanks Leslie for allowing us to have the meeting at her place and for the great eats as well! Thanks to you all for setting up this event! It was run smoothly and effectively! Best! -Tim
What a score it was for you guys to get Michael Fremer to be there. A fun personality, and a great presentation. I think the turnout showed it was hugely popular with the group. -Gordon
I hung in there for a while… then the Sandman got me. Way over my head. The reason I was there was Ed is interested even if he will never buy that expensive of a set. He said he enjoyed it and I noticed he didn’t get sleepy. I think Mike was a good speaker, kept everybody interested, good sense of humor. Food was fine and good company. -Karen and Ed
I was so excited about the afternoon program that I decided to catch the last part of the first session. Michael Fremer, of course, is one of the highest profile writers and bloggers of the high end. I’m very impressed that we could have him address our group in such a comfortable and informal setting. Thanks for arranging this. The presentation itself was funny, entertaining and useful. It’s always better to see things done in person, complete with dropped screws and uncertainties regarding the direction to rotate various items. We can all identify with those things. I think that SFAS should consider acquiring some of the setup equipment that Michael mentioned. It would be a great membership benefit. Finally, I did capture Michael’s opening explanation regarding his TAS apparel, and here is a link to the video: https://goo.gl/photos/uHbF2mSM9TCaKRB88 -Jay
Thank you for the turntable event, I learned a lot. The lunch was great, my wife had fun and I’m happy. I have a simple music hall 2.2 turntable and tone arm which is almost idiot proof, but the tooth pick tip will help me when i want to upgrade from my grado gold moving magnet cartridge. Thank you for a great Saturday! -Daniel
Fremer is always personable and funny, full of good information and easy to understand. Leslie’s hospitality and eats were very fine, she must be a saint to open her nice house to such a crowd. -Tam
Alón, Thank you (and Leslie, Dan, David, Albert, Laurent and Michael). That was a very nice and useful event. You (plural) have certainly reinvigorated the Society. -Bebop
