  4. Good to meet you at Harv's John. Unfortunately we can't make it, as we're away then. I'm sure it'll be a corker.

    Bake off in Purley Surrey CR8 on 11th August

    Huge thanks to Harv and the lovely Mrs Harv, Alpa, for your hospitality. The food was divine, and you were very welcoming. It was a great afternoon, lovely to see some of you again and meet some of you for the first time. And of course the music... We came away with a raft of new stuff to listen to, and I must confess, I did fall in love with a certain Marantz CD player.... Special thanks to Nav for bringing his system too - those Spendors were singing beautifully. Personally speaking, although the front room system had stunning grip, attack and punch, all three of us (Mrs Brigadoon, Brigadoon Offspring and myself) preferred the back room system with its smoothness, delicate detail and soul stirring musicality. It was actually great having two very different systems to listen to, and the best about this passion of ours is there's no right or wrong answer - it all comes down to taste, music choice etc. I think it was John who used the word "synergy". While the Cowboys 'Blue Moon Revisited' left me cold on the front system but came alive in the back room , I had a good listen with Harv just after lunch when he was playing some of his music on the front room system, and it was very, very good. I'm just sorry we had to leave when we did - I would have loved to plumb the JVC into the front room system, just to get a measure of it against some real high-end amplification. Thanks to all for making it a great afternoon - and for making losing our BO cherries a most enjoyable experience.
