    Well you won't want a Devon interloper attending then, sounds like you would be expelling me.

    You won't be the only one Adrian, as Akwardbydesign (Dick) says he is coming so the Devon massif is very welcome

    We have a Seaton here in Cornwall, so nobody will question that anyway.

    Just be careful when doing your scone dressing

    Well I don't eat scones or pasties, but I do spend time in Cornwall, so there's a possibility I may be around in the new year. An hour or two away down near Helston though.

    Looking at the map its about 75 mile not too far, do you know what day of the week?

    Not sure what gear I would bring, lugging the Tannoys about requires a very large car or van and two people. Maybe amp, phono stage and SUT.

    PS I am definitely not getting dressed up as a scone, Devon or Cornish.

    It will be either the 18th or the 25th January (both are Saturdays), depending upon people being able to attend either dates.

    Bring whatever you like Adrian, but bear in mind I don't have a turntable at the moment, so keep an eye on whatever others are bringing along.

    WHAT no TT, I presume you traded it in for yet another pair of squeekers I'm not too keen lugging an expensive TT around with expensive cartridge, a bit too easy to get damaged, shame I don't still have the Project Xperience II.

    Mmm hopefully someone will bring one along, I don't suppose there is any WIFI their, I could then bring the RPI/Hifiberry and Caiman SEG, otherwise if could be CD's.
