    Venue was easy to find and very nice, with free coffee and tea. but The layout was a tad confusing when trying to find the rooms you wanted to listen to. overall 8/10

    Me and Kate went today. It was very quiet not very many people there. The Malvern Audio room was interesting, a very eager to please system and none of it expensive, a very good real world HiFi. The hornings were good but when we were in there the music was not to our taste so I was a bit underwhelmed I know they can be better. Art Audio room was good but I think a better choice of speakers might have helped, they were a bit big for the small room. There were a lot of middle of the road rooms that had nothing to tell them apart from each other. Then there was the AudioNec room, which sonically was stunning, every sound was so real and right there is the room. Unfortunately it was £250,000 and the ugliest speakers and boxes I’ve ever seen. Anyway brought a few pictures back to pop of the forum. a
  4. For Sale Two Cartridges both Ortofon Quintet Black. 1. Ortofon Quintet Black S Sold STP 2. This has been my spare cartridge which is a OrtofonQuintet Black with original Boron Cantilever retiped by ESCO with a paratrace stylus. I recently sold this and it was returned to me as the buyer told me it would not trackproperly. I have tried it since and had no problem and I never had a problem before. The cantilever is slightly off at a angle but when properly lined up it has never been a problem. So bearing in mind what happened with last sale I'm willing to do a mega bargain on this one of £220. Bearing in mind what it is worth as a part ex against a new Ortofon cart it is worth that. I think it is fine but I want to be fair and honest so I'm doing a deal.

    For Sale Trilogy 906 phono stage

    They are different beasts to be honest. The Remton is a tad warmer in its over all presentation. The 906 slightly more detailed and neutral. Sound quality wise it is very close its down to your personal taste more than anything I would say.

    My 1974 Capri

    That is lovely. I've had lots of fast fords but never a Capri. I loved my XR3 and mki XR2. I also had a Sierra Sapphire 2000e which was fun. lovely job on the Capri
