    Or you could look at it as the business facilitating a large meet and wetting its beak a little in the process. I mean the exhibiters and attendees are not there because they have to be or feel they should be even though they've got better things they could be doing. Sure it could be done on a non-profit basis but that require someone getting off their arse and organising it ( a lot of work to do an event that size) for no other reason than they want to. Nobody's stopping anyone from doing that.

    We made a pretty nice sound in there... Back when AoS was less than six months old!

    Yes, that is precisely how I see it. However, normally a company will make something people want to buy and then sell it to them - not make customers make it and pay for it themselves and then sell it to their mates....

    As it happens, I’ve got a great idea for a business too and it involves a subject you are really keen on. All I need is for you to provide all the finance and the content for free, and you won’t mind if I pocket the profit will you?

    Exhibited three times and visited at other times. When James sold the forum and the new man took over and runs it as a business, fair enough he had to buy the forum, it lost its charm. Going to Scalford since has meant parking in the town at the mercy of the thieves and doing park and ride. Paying for a room whether you want to stay or not. Good luck with all of that. I haven't visited the wam for years, are the struggling to fill the rooms this year, usually the rooms would all be taken before Christmas.

    I recall the AoS 'Cheap as chips' room a few years back being one of the most interesting visits of the day. It sounded too bloody good !

    INVITATION TO EXHIBIT TO OTHER FORUMS

    This is a formal invitation to all other hifi forums who would like to exhibit at this years HiFi Enthusiast Show, the biggest collection of personal systems in the UK (thought about Brexit).

    I'm sure we have members here that are members everywhere else so it can be copied and passed on. We intend to give each forum two rooms which are next to each other where they can attract and show off their systems so please make sure this is passed on. The show is nearly full so please make sure this happens quickly.

    Does a repeat post count as spam?
