  6. Good point Jules - I keep forgetting I've moved closer to Lurch's Lair
  7. Having recently moved to the area, we're keen to connect with some regional kindred spirits. We are a 5 min walk from the Petersfield Station, GU32 3EE so are accessible by public transport ( 1hr from London) and I'd be more than happy to colect anyone if walking was a problem or you were carryng kit. There are also two rather tasty Vinyl sellers in town, real-world prices and some good stuff. If enough interest, I'll approach them and see if I can swing a discount for Wammers on the day... We're a 5 min drive from the town and would be happy to run folks into town if they'd like. If you're driving then there's lots of P&D parking in town, and at our home there's loads of free parking. Obviously date dependent, but are there any takers in principle? The (pre Alan Hardwood) Harbies will be running, so if anyone is curious about or has a bit of kit they'd like to hear on (or against) a 30 year old iteration of today's SHL5, then please do pop in. Possible dates are 16 Nov, 30 Nov or 7 Dec.

  10. We had a similar experience - I've been gagging for ESL's for years, and Michèle (Mrs Brigadoon) couldn't understand why. As we made our way to the ...erm...gym... after listening to John's system, she turned to me and asked thoughtfully "So, how much would a pair of those speakers cost?"....... We're moving to a bigger house in July, so.... As a footnote, I once auditioned a setup costing north of £100k consisting of Avant Garde Trio horns, California Audio Lab and Balanced Audio Technology Valve Pre/power amps and a I think a California Audio Lab Aria valve Cd player, listening to Eva Cassidy's "Fever". The same track on John G's system simply blew that one out of orbit
