We had short meet cuz Joe had to get home to watch his baby girl. But it was fantastic as usual and the boxes were magnificent. I got to check out Scotts newest boxes, his Aiwa 880 which was an excellent box which now i will have to add one to my collection... We also compared our Telefunken Studio 1's. as you can see I have the Studio 1 and Scott's is the 1M :-). Both of course look and sound fantastic :drool: Then Joe checked over his 3 Grails I repaired, hopefully he is happy :lol: then the guys checked out a few of my new ones. The Dynasty Discolite, The Korean Black AKA C126, my Sharp GF777 and the New I931 BTQ Silver/chrome model. All in all it was a great meet :thumbsup:

I took some pics so hope you guys enjoy :-). Joe and Scott were awesome :smooch: Joe made a copy of his JVC M90 Service manual that was exact duplicate and brought me a copy :thumbsup: Scott and I worked out a small buy. A couple months ago there was a Sanyo M X520 on eBay in pretty good shape. I wanted it because they are hard to find and since I have 620,720,920 and Big Ben to complete family more :-). Anyway I was having surgery day it ended and never was able to bid. Few weeks later I found out Scott bid and won :thumbsup: So he pretty much cleaned and repaired unit and I explained how bad I wanted it. Him and I worked out deal and well now I have it. Plus Scott went out of his way to buy a service manual to go with Boombox :thumbsup: these guys are
Just awesome and I'm glad to call them my friends :smooch:
