Respect for DaRev!
I think its pretty clear that everyone had a brilliant time at the bake off. It was not just a awesome hi-fi play day for me personally but great social event. I think I can speak for everyone in saying the hospitality that was presented and the preparation and work that must have gone into it was incredible, but it was very much appreciated. It was a great mix of personalities and genuine people all brought together by a common interest and passion for music. Big thanks to you both for making it happen.
And what's going on here ? You are the first ever woman I have known to demand their partner to get them a set of highly regarded 'audiophile' speakers like ProAc response 2.5s. Those are a serious dedicated enthusiasts speaker (usually a man). I'm having trouble dealing with this, I've never known a 'girl' to personally want or have a better (or bigger) set of speakers than me !
But I totally agree your tablettes also sound wonderful, and they don't need such crazy fire breathing amps to get them sounding their best either.
If you was up for Scalford next year, I'd pay half for the room or however it works, and help out, and I'd take the floor no bother. But I think Id try to stay there next time anyway even if you didn't exhibit, if that s possible. It's a long way off yet anyway.
