    Attendance was gash, hardly any decent rooms, Nick's room was the pic of the bunch. Bought some records from Diverse and some rubber feet from mcru. I doubt it'll survive another year, certainly not on the Salford weekend.

    Going to this today, hope its worthwhile. Its only a quick run up the motor way from Liverpool so no real bother. I'll report back later.

    Hi Simon,

    Were you the wee guy, along with Mark (YNWaN), who walked into Nick's room?

    Perhaps from an organisers point of view, but the lack of crowds, bumping into folks in corridors and fighting to find a seat in rooms, for me was great! Just enough 'bodies' around to create a bit of atmosphere... Parking was piss-easy too, and right next to the hotel - another *major* bonus

    Nick's room was the pic of the bunch.
    I agree, but the Monarch T/T, in the Inspire hi-fi room sounded sublime. Not sure if you heard that or not. Always wanted to hear one and compare it with my own T/T (which uses the same Technics D/D motor), and it was very good indeed.

    I would URGE anyone going to the show today to head for the Inspire room and ask to hear it, as there are a host of T/Ts there all ready to demo, and compare the same piece of music, played on one of the belt-drives. It's somewhat of a revelation....

    I doubt it'll survive another year, certainly not on the Salford weekend.
    Salford weekend? Is that some local holiday or something?

    I believe Marco was having a laugh about the word 'Salford' as opposed to 'Scalford'. If you've never been to Salford, you haven't missed much.

    Was good meeting some familiar faces yesterday and in general I enjoyed the show, so I do hope it takes place again next year. Perhaps attendance will be better today when most folks are off work?

    Anyway, the primary reason I go to these shows is to pick up some brand new vinyl! There are plenty of second-hand record shops around Wrexham and Chester, but few where you can physically browse through a big pile of new vinyl, and for me there's nothing like that - far better than buying online.

    So yesterday I obtained the following (from the stall next to Diverse):











    I also bought some black poly-lined sleeves from Covers 33, as their prices are great. Ordered from them before many times online, but it was nice this time to meet the guy behind the scenes.

    Plus.... Chris (Stratmangler) recommended a CD the guys in the AudioNote room were selling, called Pure Cello, by Vincent Belanger, for its sonic and musical qualities, which I duly bought. I resisted the temptation of buying the double-vinyl album, on 45rpm, selling for just shy on fifty notes and got the CD instead, for a tenner, which sounds stunning.

    Here's a YouTube clip, detailing some of the performance:



    So looking forward to chilling out and having a nice listening sesh today!

    Yes of course I know that, daftee, but Simon wrote Salford, not Scalford, and as Salford is an area of Manchester, I thought he was referring to some sort of local holiday

    Are the black liners worth the extra 5 over the white ones?
