    Seconded. Wish Les a speedy recovery.

    Bit late getting back to this thread but I've been super busy.

    What a thoroughly enjoyable day.

    Massive thanks to Rich, Steve and Ken in particular for organising and bringing lots of big, awkward gear.

    I'd never heard a DD turntable before and got to hear two at NEBO. I was really taken back with their relentless, propulsive sound.

    The big Technics CD player was awesome what a big cool looking bit of kit.

    Steve's Heco's were a perfect match for that big room and drove it like a PA system.

    Never heard my power amp sound as good as when fed by Mik Rik'd Yaqin valve preamp and I was knocked out by his Radford amp. The bass drive coming off it was awesome. Some 15watter!

    The Firebottle really motored on the ZZ Top LP. Rhythm section sounded like a big Diesel engine purring - chunky!

    Peter's Rega Isis was a beaut too as was Ken's TT.

    But above all the great gear meeting the people was by far the best experience of the lot. What a genuine, sincere bunch of fellas. So glad I made it and got to spend th day with you all. It was a blast.

    Pleasure to meet you John and enjoy a few beers n laughs. That Primaluna amp of yours left an impression on me. Ballsy but controlled, bags of class and finesse but not at the expense of fun. Very nice.

    Thanks again for making the journey. Perhaps we'll see you again in future.

    ATB.
