    Any thoughts on how this might pan out?

    It's a good idea and I'll certainly support it in any way I can. As a forum, we've exhibited an 'AoS system' three times at Scalford, and all three occasions were a huge success

    Back then, the kit demonstrated was taken from systems belonging to the (then) mod team, but if we're going to exhibit an AoS system this time, I think all the kit should come from the membership, so we should collate together a list of kit from all members who'd like to submit something to the system, and then take it from there

    My thoughts are as follows

    If we get allocated a large room there is plenty of space for several systems Each exhibitor can have several 30 min slots then time for a walk about

    We have on the Sunday about 6 hours time , But add 2 this Saturday evening / night for some AOS fun

    Marco has said he will support in any way he can , " Thats the bar bill covered then "

    Indeed he did. But he forgot to mention that bar was only open for 30 seconds before doors opened

    Nah, sorry, that doesn't interest me, but if it's what most want, then cool, go ahead.

    What I had in mind is ONE 'AoS system' being demonstrated, which is made up of various components/speakers owned by the AoS membership, and which other components/speakers belonging to members could be slotted into at various stages throughout the day, so that everyone gets a chance of hearing their kit, but in a defined context.

    That, for me, is potentially much more interesting, liable to be less chaotic, and easier organised.

    Marco has said he will support in any way he can , " Thats the bar bill covered then "
    Lol - if this all goes ahead, I may drop a couple of hundred quid behind the bar for that purpose, so it's up to you guys to make it happen!

    I've demonstrated at the Wam show and been in charge of rooms at real commercial shows. In reality I think you would find the '30 mins slot' a right royal PITA to do, and extremely tiring for all concerned. Bear in mind that when busy (which is most of the time) there isn't room to move in many rooms never mind shift gear about etc.
