Well, I'm back from vacation in Serbia, below are some pics I took. Turns out that Srajan also visited Serbia (10 days after I left) and his excellent coverage is now on 6moons. Pretty good section on Trafomatic, with quite a few "behind the scenes" pics:http://www.6moons.com/industryfeatures/roadtourserbia/trafomatic.html
Many thanks to Srajan for the great coverage of audio scene in this small and neglected country!
Here are some of my pics. I will not bother with much text, it'd be very pale compared to Srajan's prose.
Downtown Sremska Mitrovica, a small city 60 miles west of Belgrade. That's where my base is when I visit.
Many kids and lots of fun at my parents' house
But my son likes to work in the garden too...
Kids enjoy having unrestricted access to monuments:
in downtown Mitrovica
and, especially, in the War Museum in Belgrade
There was also a regional folk fest in the digs of ancient Roman city of Sirmium - on it's ruins Sremska Mitrovica was built in early medieval times
Then I met with the Trafomatic team:
Left to right:
Milorad Despotovic - Trafomatic
Darko Sasic - Audio Consultant
Sasa Cokic - Trafomatic
and myself... no, I'm not that taller - I'm on a hill...
A trip would not be complete without visit to Mladenovac and Trafomatic headquarters... Sasa was just finishing Head One for one of my customers
while few power trannies were waiting for evaluation testing
and his crew was hard at work making new trannies
New wood trim for Reference Monoblocks had just arrived for inspection
And finally - an invention worth mentioning: 2 liter (0.5 gal) bottle of beer! The one in the picture has only 5.5% of alcohol, but the one with 7% really got close to my heart aa
All in all, fun trip, perfect weather and even better company. I'm loking forward to going back again soon
