Vintagehifi.dk Meetup 2019
Each year the forum at Vintagehifi.dk hosts it’s yearly vintagehifi meet up. Vintagehifi.dk is the primary danish forum for all things related to vintagehifi. I joined the forum right at the beginning back in 2010, and since then I’ve tried to get to the meet up, usually planned sometime in march.
We shift around the country, to make the gathering available to more members, and it is always a pleasure to attend and meet new and old friends. Listening, seeing, learning and in all respects just geek out over old gear. This year we held the gathering right outside Copenhagen, and I was asked to present my speakers and setup.
Who was John Iverson?
If you, like me, has been on forums concerning hi-fi for the last 10 years or so, there is a tiny little chance that you might have read the name John Iverson somewhere.

Whatever the case, if there is an opportunity to mention it, John Iverson’s mystery disappearance comes up, along with tales of his amazing ingenuity.
