2nd December 2010 Meeting
Date: Sunday, December 19, 2010
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: Boston University, Life Science & Engineering Bldg, 24 Cummington
St, 1st Floor Conference Room (Room 103), Boston, MA 02215, (617) 271-6588
Featured Guest: BAS members
Topic: Favorite recordings and White Elephant Sale
BAS members will have a chance to showcase their favorite
recordings. This includes commercial recordings that you have enjoyed over
the years. This is your chance to be more than a passive member of the BAS.
We will have a quality system for CD playback. If you have any special AV
requirements, contact us. Please limit your demo to 10 to 15 minutes, depending
on the number of participants.
Bring along anything audio-related you wish to sell,
exchange, get rid of and never want to see again. That includes old receivers,
tuners, amplifiers, CDs, tape decks, Elcaset players, Shakti Stones that
have lost their zip, and anything else. The agenda/purpose is to rid you
of equipment that would otherwise collect dust or go unused for another
year. The equipment or materials you bring do not have to be working, but
it should be of some interest to a society of members who possess a broad
imagination and an expansive interest in everything, The meeting will be
of particular interest to people who are unable to throw anything away;
you can sell it if the price is right.
Refreshments will be provided at 5:30.
