    Wires are long enough... Love it!

    Sounds like an interesting system. Do you Dominic Harper, from NWA? He lives in New Longton, so I suspect is not too far from you.

    This is his website (specialises in building/re-tipping cartridges and modifying/building T/Ts, mainly Garrards: http://www.northwestanalogue.com/index.html

    Really nice bloke, as is his wife Natalie, and great hosts. You should hook up sometime... Maybe pop him an email and see if he fancies coming to your bake-off?

    We'll sort kit nearer the time Ben. With just the one room it can be a faff but I'm sure a bit of swapping wouldn't go amiss

    OK, we're up to 13 or so. There will be (very nice) porkpies, plus any snacks people bring. Dom and Natalie from NWA are coming, plus Ben, marco, greg and Mike from here and a few Wammers.

    Anyone else?

    PMs with address sent. No-one appears to be bringing any kit so phono or pre-amp very welcome. Speakers if you are feeling brave!
