  1. Just got home. It was good to meet lots more Wammers and put some faces to names. Both systems were producing some good sounds through the day and I’m happy I finally got to here some Wilson’s! Thank you John for the hospitality and hope I can make the next one.
  2. You may regret saying that! I’m hoping to arrive around 10:30ish, if the trains are on time. As my speaker cables are terminated with Z-Plugs, and it doesn’t look like we’ll be short of cables, I’ll probably leave them at home.
  3. I think I’ve caught up with the flurry of posts! As I don’t need to bring 45 kgs of amplification, I’m happy getting the train.😁 I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to bring my CD transport and DAC (should have a bag big enough for them both). I have a selection of digital cables (BNC-BNC, RCA-BNC etc...) I can bring if people want to try various combinations plus several balanced and single ended interconnects. Do we need any speaker cables for the second system? I have a spare 4m pair of Nordost cables I could bring if required.
  4. What are you listening to right now?

    Me and That Man - Songs of Love and Death An interesting mix of blues, country & folk from Behemoth (black/death metal) front man Nergal and John Porter.
  5. Hi Chris, tried sending you a PM last night but for some reason it didn’t want to send! If the offer of a lift is still available could you PM me (I seem to be able to reply to them)? If I can get a lift I’m able to bring my Pre & Power amp plus an assortment of “foo” cables!
  6. What are you listening to right now?

    I heard “Heavyweight” off this album at the Indulgence Show and have been keeping an eye out for a copy on CD that’s not ridiculous money, no luck so far. I dug out The Lone Deranger album the other day, forgot how much fun it was!
  7. What are you listening to right now?

    Metallica - S&M
  8. Thanks, Jamie hasn’t got back to me yet, so I’ll keep you informed.
  9. Guess the album cover

    Well done, your go.
  10. Guess the album cover

    Not at all, still have to do it to my shirts. It’s not some obscure import, it was recorded before but released after the artists platinum selling breakthrough album.
  11. Thanks for the heads up, I’ll PM him later.
  12. Guess the album cover

    Ok, the whole album cover with artist & title covered.
  13. Guess the album cover

    One is covering the artists name and the other their face. Suprised no one has got this as the artist has won multiple MTV Video Music Awards... ...plus a few NME awards, several Brit awards and a handful of Grammy’s.
  14. I don’t have transport so was planning on getting the train. Unfortunately my “full size” gear is to big and heavy to bring on the train so was planning on bringing stuff from my 2nd system. Although I’ve had the power amp running my N802’s for an evening, the Wilsons on paper look like a far more punishing load (the power amp is only 50W at 8 Ohms).
  15. Guess the album cover

    A little bit more...
