I pulled the pin on attendance, as have many of my colleagues that were travelling to HK in light of the escalating violence and protests.

Not worth the risk for me, as well as the inconvenience of road and MTR closures.

I was sent a very disturbing video by a friend (that works in the industry) in HK last night that shows what is making it to the news and just what isn't!

 

The trip for me was non-essential despite being normally very enjoyable so not a hard decision to make.

No doubt it will go ahead. Local reports say the number of travellers entering HK has declined sharply though.

Very sad, and it's become much more than just the extradition bill now. I think this is seen as an opportunity to finally speak up about what current and future generations fear was inevitable, come 2047.

 

I'll miss the Espresso Martinis this year! Buy Rusty one for me though!

I’ll drink to that! ? 

But you will be missed... ? 

I read recently that that the conviction rate on the mainland is over 90%... 

And the citizen monitoring system will be fully implemented well before 2047.

Post your nice pics in the show thread.

My apologies.  The show thread is full of crap about the protests, why would I post pics on a thread gone totally “off topic”!?

Apparently there was a rush on 8k Panasonic TV's by some SNA members and action had to be taken........?

Now, that's a beautiful looking speaker. Especially next to that ugly white boxy thing that looks like a fridge...

Nice Eamonn

 

Those large PMC speakers look interesting.

 

How did the GIYA's sound driven by the Relentless amps?

 

It might be difficult when you try to bring the Air Force Zero in as hand luggage :ohmy:

Any local brands?

Duntech, as depicted above, at least. Kiat mentioned that he was going to a show. Great to see those Duntech speakers representing us.

 

Hope that's not the first and last Aussie repped product.

Arr Shane, the first espresso was excellent, the next tasted as if they’d forgotten the liqueur... 

Didn’t take pics day1, but the Octaves were yummy, as was a reel to reel I stood and dribbled over. 

Problem was I got stuck listening to the Campfire Andromeda special edition earphones that were shown for the first time. The bass and mids resolution and soundstage were awesome, as is the price. How do you get seven (!) drivers... I’m yet to hear the Solaris.

By the way I have been in HK with Kiat since Wednesday evening and not seen a protestor.

 

I believe there were a couple of protestors when they saw their drink bill @ Taboo bar  :). @rusty48  @Stump
