    The main reason for choosing this venue is because its about as central as you can get, plus good motorway access.

    Also the venue has an on site Motel as well as the function room, so it works well.

    Lots of us stay over and drive back the next day.

    Rooms are cheap and really nice, food and beer is good too

    Just a thought anyway..

    Excellent suggestion, Jeff! I also know of Coalville, as I bought my car from this dealership: http://www.adcarsalesuk.co.uk/

    I also agree that if any AoS-branded show were to happen, that's the area of the country I'd be looking at - either that or somewhere around Birmingham

    Still think it needs to be a good 2 or really 3 hours away from Scalford. You'll get the same crowd and piss off the Wammers if you put it in Brum or Leicester.

    It's moot anyway, as the show is unlikely to happen. If that situation changes, then we can look at possible locations more seriously

    I have voted no, as I don't go to any other shows due to the distances and costs involved.

    Early day yet but 19 willing members , See what happens later in the week

    My thoughts on this would be a venue with rooms for over night accommodation , arrive Saturday , book in , meal , meet and greet , few beers and a chat , If the venue has a medium conference room each member would be allocated a time slot for setting up and running their system, then all change onto the next members system etc

    Central location should please everyone , very early days yet and 19 people may not work , Time will tell
    These are just my thoughts

    If we end u with 70 members maybe a room based show like WW
    Music , fills the gaps between silence !

    You can do that here anytime though.

    I find videos of Hi-Fi largely uninteresting personally. They give you no real idea of how the equipment sounds.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Wammers are from all round the country, as long as its not at that venue I don't see a problem. keep a few months away from that show slot and I don't see that we would be stepping on anyone's toes. The Wam show is early in the year so plenty of the calender to go at, there is room for more than one show, as is the case with the Trade Shows.

    In the absence of anything else I will probably be showing at the next Wigwam show myself. Like many members here, I dip in and out of several forums. I post mostly on AoS but take an interest in what others are doing, both in this country and further afield, there is too much talk in both camps, as though its us or them. I acknowledge there is an element of that, but why add to it, I'm not having a go at you personally here User211. You will get some peoples backs up whatever you do, even if you do nothing.

    As for locating South of London, that would make it very difficult for the Scottish Mafia or the North East Posse to attend, as it would require at least 2 nights accommodation and two days just travelling, even for a one day show.

    As has been pointed out, something of this scale takes a huge amount of organising.
    Maybe smaller regional meets along the lines of NEBO and MiBO are the way forward.

    I wasn't being wholly serious.

    I like a hi-fi vid spend ages on YouTube me.

    I'd raise the thread but I bet no one would post. Too shy, worried about comments on sonics etc.

    Given a decent mic and play back on a good system I think you can get an idea. Try the Kenrick Sound videos - they are shot seriously, and they do display meaningful variance in sonics across speakers.

    Anything else though on YouTube, without the same hardware doing the shooting, you're a bit clueless. Most sound pretty dire.
