    Yeah I immediately thought Tannoy. So will most. Tis a good clean sounding drive unit, I think, from what I heard. I'll slip a video in at some stage to give a vague vibe but they did do the drums in the flesh much better than the video plays back on my 2nd system.

    OK let's do a quick bloody dreadful. Mission. As confirmed by an old acquaintance by the name of George, just shite. If anyone hears this room sounding anything better than rubbish, let us know

    And hear is another candidate for rubbish. What the hell was going on I don't know but surely the cartridge was damaged or something. It just sounded like it was mis-tracking dreadfully. At least I hope that was the case. It's the first time I have heard this Michell cartridge. Either that, or the record was a complete mess.

    I own a Michell deck and like their kit, BTW. Hopefully the problem will be fixed by tomorrow.

    Don't worry there is more "good" to come, but that is it for today. More tomoz.

    I am at the show tomorrow, at the Timestep stand on the ground floor. Please drop by to say hello, and to see my new Technics armboards, as well as a rather exciting new tonearm from Timestep (it’s very lovely indeed and I will be selling it alongside Glanz.

    Here’s a photo of the new arm https://photos.app.goo.gl/uQcIb0yMwoeEbfqI2

    Yeah, like Pink Triangle before it.

    The only person I ever knew who bought one of them was .. er .. also "one of them"

    great show . the ram speakers room pretty good with the little l3/5a falcon speakers causing quite a stir . their sudgen amps looked good . the new spendor a7 sounding very natural and the audionote e`s were just utterly fantastic . if only , if only they would turn the volume down in that room !!

    well worth a visit

    The new SP10 was worth a look.
