    Default Monmouthshire/Herefordshire Mini Bake off 2/12/18

    Small gathering at my house in Pencraig, in-between Ross-On-Wye and Monmouth.
    I've recently moved here so the more local the better, limited capacity so first come first reserved, PM me.

    Primarily Pre-amps but anything else most welcome (My pre-amp has a very good phono stage if anyone wants to bring a turntable,
    spare speaker stands to use too) Feel free to bring CD's or USB.

    Sunday 2nd December anytime from 11am to 5ish, drinks will be provided, bring your own lunch if coming early.

    Hi Gary
    Thats great!
    If its phono only we will need a Turntable, I recently sold my Thorens!
    I mentioned the 'very good phono stage' in case anyone wanted to bring a turntable.


    (Thanks Audio Al)

    Hi Gary, have just found your post. Shame you couldn't make it. Another Gary (Stryder5) was due to come but was unfortunately laid low after a flu jab so it turned out to be a very mini bake off! First of all I had a listen to Barry's Isobariks. Barry has quite a large listening room and I was impressed with their room filling abilities but compared to my speakers I felt that they lacked a little precision and did not image as well. Granted my room is very different and I am listening in "near field" conditions. The "sweet spot" is very sweet but very narrow. If I move my head 6 inches either way the headphone effect goes. We then hooked up my IPL S2 Tlm transmission lines. We didn't have time to play about with the optimum positioning but Barry was kind enough to say that he liked them. All of Ivan Leslie's transmission line speakers have the same sound qualities but in Barry's room I think I would choose the next size up. I had not met Barry before but he was a perfect host and I had very enjoyable trip to Monmouth. Thanks Barry!
