    I still can't believe how little there is in an Aleph 60 monoblock.

  4. Room for 10 or so for a chilled day of tunes, conversation and a bit of kit swapping between 11am and 7pm. I’ll provide tea, coffee and fruit juice plus pizza mid-afternoon. I'm CD only, so if you want to play vinyl, you'll need to bring a turntable and phono stage. Attendees: Barrington (mayebaza) Edd (Edd9000) Alex (Alex 54)

    great show!

    The exhibiting bit is easy, it’s the breaking the kit down, packing it in the car, unpacking at the venue and rebuilding before the show and the breaking the kit down, packing it in the car, unpacking at home and rebuilding to return to normal after the show that is the problem!

    great show!

    As much as I enjoyed exhibiting again this year, i’m hoping that the spreadsheet fills up with new names next year so that I can take a break and attend as a punter.

    More than a few people were surprised when I said that my CD transport weighed far more than my monoblocks. Part of the reason that I really like the Alephs is their simplicity; there is very little in the signal path or that can go wrong.

    @Signs Did you see this thread in the owner's club? ->
  13. You know @bandit pilot won’t visit my room in case I’m playing Frazey Ford.
  14. Blondie, the Pretenders, the Police, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, ABBA, the Bee Gees, Kate Bush and George Michael added to the potential playlist.
  15. I’m planning on playing Spirit of Eden in it’s entirety at 3pm but this is subject to the noise pollution from Bass Central next door to me not being too intrusive. I’ve decided to bring less audiophile music this year and have raided the deepest recesses of my collection to be as populist as possible.
