In this long awaited episode, we discuss what all we have been up to since our last episode in January. We recap the 2015 Ohio Pinball Show, talk about a new-in-box Stern pin purchase, and discuss my trip to Asheville, NC to re-visit the Asheville Pinball Museum.
Want to add better sound to your pins for fairly cheap? We also discuss adding a powered subwoofer instead of costly full speaker upgrades.
