In contrast the pros were their usual rather aloof and standoffish. It was a shame that some of the more extreme exhibitors were missing this year but there was still a lot to see and listen to.

    The two rooms using stand mount JBL's stood out for me and neither sounded at all vintage.

    ken (Qwin), I'm afraid your speaker experiment, although interesting, left me more bemused than convinced. Sorry - but it was interesting.

    The Linn demo and workshop were interesting.

    I took a photo in every room (I hope) and intend to do a write up if I have time.

    Being a busy bunny I also went to the Stylus Vinyl Show in Manchester (saw Marco there briefly - Hi ) - this was a really quiet show, a couple of interesting exhibits.

    Thanks for the JBL feedback. We had a very positive response and at one time, had people on chairs, the floor and the sides of the room and every single one was a repeat visitor! By this time the orange grilles had left the room!

    Please introduce yourself next time; it's nice to put a name and face to a username.

    Maybe you should find another venue ? There used to be a yearly group meet north but that was mostly DIY based systems and certainly no Trade demos. Does not need to be huge and time it at the other end of the year. An AOS Show.

    Hi David,

    Yes, we (the mods and members) have discussed that idea on many occasions, but it takes a lot of time and organising to do it right, which unfortunately most of us don't have.

    Maybe one day?

    Anyway, hope you are keeping well. The project you discussed on another thread sounds very interesting!

    Marco.

    Your system sounded very good! I remember asking you about the Marantz CD63 KI where you replied that there's an easy mod to improved the sound significantly - something about cutting a PCB track - do you have reference of this anywhere?

    How did the Electrocompaniet "The 2 Channel Amplifier" (complete with the preamp) compare with the Quad 22 + 2xII ?
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
