    Definitely going tomorrow, so I'll hear them for myself. Ali, is there somewhere selling vinyl?

    Lol... I always just prefer to ask someone who'll know. It's what we did in the old days before all this pish was invented!

    Are you going tomorrow then, daftee?

    It's more fun asking if Google is broken than giving a straight answer
    Yes, I'll be there - see you tomorrow.

    Loads of vinyl for sale mate.

    The system-

    NWA refurbed Garrard 301 with NWA refurbed SME 3012. Cart is NWA DH 2.

    Music First TVC passive pre, Nick's LCR two box phono stage ( being sold by Music First)

    Amps are Nick's new P6 Mosfet 200w monos, feeding a pair of Graham Audio LS 5/9's.

    Lots of room treatment as you can see by GIK Acoustics. Really makes a difference in these hotel rooms, sound is much improved.
    There are times when you can’t do the sensible thing, when you can’t act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But when’s that ever stopped us?

    Never heard of this show mate. Looks interesting and that system is as much a treat for the ears as the eyes I'll bet.

    Aye it's a new one Rich. Not sure what the attendance will be like, with Scalford this weekend too.

    Yeah, that's a thought re Scalford. I've never managed to get to that as it typically clashes with family birthdays. This other one in Manchester might be a goer in future years though.
