    Yup, nasty as in a bad example of 'brutal.' Give us your example of good 'vulgar bling', then... Showz a piccie

    Basically, anything adorned with gold and/or shiny bits, just hurts my eyes and makes me think 'hi-fi jewellery' - or 'all fur and no knickers'...

    I’m just wondering if this was something you experienced in a bad dream or in real life?

    I bet those horns had you drooling!

    You bet they did. In particular the Cessaro horns were out of this world in sheer finesse, impact, scale and musicality. Followed closely by the Avantgarde horns. In the Avantgarde room of course they had the massive Trio and Basshorn set. Alright if you are a multi-millionaire with a dedicated listening room. But the Avantgarde Zero 1 (playing in a different room in Munich) is super friendly and can easily be used in most rooms we are familiar with. And only a tenth price of the top of the range Avantgarde. Mind you with the top of the range Avantgarde you get the full basshorn experience - totally nuts.

    But of course with horns you get that extremely fast articulate sound, precise and definite. No pre or post ringing - hard to describe but easy to experience.
