    What are you referring to as a shoe box, daftee?

    The black box in front of right speaker. Probably not your slipper carrier - I'm told yours is red velvet with a big "M" monogrammed on the lid.

    I thought it was a grounding box but turns out it's just a box on the ground.

    Can't remember what that box was for. It could've been mains cables or Steve's MusicWorks mains block. I'd don't wear slippers, just a little black négligée and a cheeky smile.

    Cheers. mate. I hope you do, but it won't be mine. I've given up exhibiting at shows now. Way too much work and hassle, to do it properly, especially when you've done it a few times already and worn out the novelty factor!

    And, *especially* when you've got speakers that size and weight to lug about!! I had to hire a van, the time we demoed the Lockwood Majors, and what a ball-ache of a journey that was, driving at 50mph, tops, bumping up and down the place, from Wrexham to Melton Mowbray and back...

    But not as much of a ball-ache as it was lugging the speakers down the (very) narrow stairs, in my old house, from my listening room ["broom cupboard"] and into the van, then doing the same thing again on the way back, at the end of the day when you're knackered, not including also having to rebuild the rest of your system from scratch...

    So, never again! However, I hope you enjoy the day

    Marco.

    I do seem to remember it was going to change, something to do with Scalford not wanting it there. I'm kind of indifferent to it. I was lucky to have been at the first one and several others afterwards when it had a different atmosphere, not that the good people of the wam have changed that, it's more the involvement of dealers and the ownership.

    Totally get ya !

    I've thought about this myself but only for literally a few secs as the realities of it all hit home.

    The whole idea of having to pull the system down, lugging, transporting and then having to set it all up again x 2 equates to pure hassle and stress.

    Doesnt help that It's so easy to knock the tonearm / cartridge out of sweetspot but a right PITA to find it back again in my experience
