    Just got back and I'm totally shagged out but my god what a good day that was. I think we did about 10 or 12 phono stages and the standard was ridiculously high. Also got a listen to the Urei studio monitors which I've always wanted to hear and they didn't disappoint. Dynamics like a PA system but all the detail there as well.

    I didn't stay all day, enjoyed what I heard.

    Nice to put faces to names, enjoyed meeting everyone.

    Thanks to the team that made this possible.

    Had a great day and was really good to meet a few forum members. Thanks Oliver for organising it, I think everyone there was hugely impressed with the whole thing.

    Can't believe Barrington's stage only cost £500. The one that really impressed me for the money though was the German Digna. Amazing sound for such a tiny thing.

    Looking forward to the pics if they get posted up.

    Wow, what a day!

    Some really great sounds, tracks and people. That's what islts all about

    Loved Macca's Krell, and the Focal speakers (I have first dibs!!!)

    I'm really pleased with the SP10 MK2. The AT1010 was superb with the Kontrapunkt b too. Sterling performance. Thanks for the comments on it guys.

    Really pleased with the DIY Wizard phonostage's performance too. My faves were the "VAS" and the "Aqvox". If I was spending money though, the "VAS" was supremely good to my ears. Best part was the Vincent and the Dibna making an absolute mockery of their price tags. Outstanding value and a performance that belonged and deserved respect. Great find guys.

    Not a bad unit in show. Very respectable sound all day and done in the right spirit.

    Just a quick thanks to all who attended and especially those you came a long way.

    A thoroughly good day.
