    The immense and new Gobel Divin.

    Great scale, effortless, easy. A bit too easy to be interesting? I'll give it some more attention tomorrow.

    The decent camera has managed more pics than I thought. Just can't take videos without noise and re-booting it numerous times results in it behaving differently each time. Very schizo.

    Can't post the better pics til I get back.

    If you can't see the above pic I am not surprised. Can't get the embed code on my mobile. I will sort it later.

    I like the idea that the speaker binding posts can be tightened with a 1/2" spanner. No doubt it will make KK tumescent with desire - that egregious Breuget looking power meter will do it!

    If it was all black it might not look too bad, but copper/silver is IMO just too 'blingy' - Jules Verne'ish steam-punk.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Is 'Relentless' really a good name for an amplifier? And why do all these new high end amps look like they were designed by Captain Nemo?

    And the price! I could buy 4 houses in my street for that money. How can a case, a traffo and some resistors and caps cost the same as 4 houses? And don't give me this 'R&D is expensive' nonsense. The bloke's been making amps for 30 years, you can't tell me he a hasn't figured out all the angles already.

    Maybe Nemo charges a fortune for his casework design? I suppose he does have a nuclear submarine to keep running so I can see why he might be expensive. But if that's the case get someone else to design it. I'm sure I could sketch out something equally as hideous and I'll only charge 300 plus VAT. Dan, are you listening? Dan....?

    Managed to grab a few pictures of the show yesterday.

    It was heaving and I reckon the number of people was up at least half compared to last year.

    Some really lovely stuff. Lots of bling as well.

    Here is a link to pictures I took yesterday.

    Any of the pics can be used for non commercial use with no attribution to me.

    Sorry I've got no time at the moment to embed any pictures here. Feel free to do so.

    A mere 5.5Kw powersupply no less! 6000w into 2 ohms. I can see where that would come in useful in any domestic environment

    Show all over will post some thoughts tomorrow.

    Two threads of the same name. My fault. Can a modster add the word report as the last word on this one? Cheers.

    It's actually 250,000 for a pair of monoblocks, so for a 5-1 system only 750,000 making it a true bargain

    We've gone on holiday by mistake !
