    It will be a great day I'm sure even if numbers are a little below the usual.

    Wish I could have sorted the childcare.

    Only to be expected i suppose. A lot has happened since the last NEBO meet not least a pandemic. I am praying we have enough folks to keep the day going. We'll just have to see how it pans out.

    Though few in numbers the quality of the kit, music and conversation was fantastic. We were joined by a young man called Christian only 24 years old. He stayed most of the day and said he enjoyed it immensely. Pictures soon. i need to find my camera first. Sorry to all that i had to leave so quickly, i lost track of the time and my son came to take me home and he was in a rush.

    Lawrence001 - It went down very well, Steves worries about numbers etc were unfounded.

    Another great NEBO gathering and the Nursery venue was ideal acoustically, the standard of sound produced by all the gear was very high.

    Ian was a great host and serves a cracking pint of Camerons Strong Arm (local ruby bitter).

    I suppose we had three main set ups, built around the speakers.

    My digital set up using analogue semi active Yamaha NS-1000 based speakers.

    Gordons digital source with DSP and Linkwitz LX Mini, bottom end reinforced with the bass units from his LX 521.

    Mikes was based around his kralk TDB 12, using both digital and analogue sources.

    So we had Sealed Box, Ported and Dipole flavours to listen to, all very different presentations, but good examples of each.

    Both tube and solid state pre amps/power amps, PrimaLuna, Neurochrome, Nord, Bigbottle, Schiit etc.
    We only had one turntable, but Mikes Thorens/Audiomods/Art9 is a cracking example.
    Thanks to Alan (Firebottle) we had a selection of great phono stages to listen to and compare to Mikes own ERT, which is also excellent.

    It was a very good day for me personally, I loved the variety of gear we had to listen to.
    If I was pushed, I would say the highlight for me was Gordons LXMini/521 bass, these threw out such a realistic sound stage, with pin sharp imaging, could have listened to them all day. As for the kralks, I think they suited Tubes and analogue source over digital, not that the digital sounded poor, they just seemed to drop into a comfort zone with the PrimaLuna and Thorens. I'll let others comment on my set up, but was pleased with how it performed, amongst such great gear.

    So congratulations Steve, another great event from my perspective, one of the best.
