  1. I don't get much chance to post on the Wam these days but had a great Sunday (and Saturday evening) at the show. Great to catch up with some old faces and meet a lot of new ones. I enjoyed so many different rooms and it was good to see that there are so many different ways of putting together a great sounding system. Some fantastic selections of music as well which will lighten my wallet over the next few weeks. Many thanks to the organisers and the exhibitors in very difficult weather conditions. It was great to chat to so many of you to get a better understanding of how your systems evolved.

    Lodgesound update

    Really, really sad news, I can only echo the comments posted previously. Saturday night at Scalford listening to Stewart's mix tapes and having a chat was always a great pleasure and one of the bits of the weekend I most looked forward to. I picked up an old Akai R2R a few months ago, mainly due to listening sessions in the Lodgesound room. Stewart was a real gent, may he rest in peace.

    Thanks for organising this again. Could I have a twin for room 207 for Saturday night only. Thanks, Clive
  4. Just got back from the coast and wanted to say thanks for a really enjoyable afternoon. Two very interesting and great sounding systems, delicious food and good company. I just wish I could have stayed and listened a bit longer.Thanks to Edd and Mick for being excellent hosts.
  5. Hi Edd, yes please, I'm just outside of Norwich so not a million miles away. Kind regards, Clive

    Summer bakeoff in Cambs

    I had two burgers and four sausages so felt I didn’t let the side down too much. The re-fried beans were amazing but very brave to give them to Wammers, especially those with a long journey home in a confined space. I haven’t had a chance to post since Saturday so many thanks to Gregg for being such an excellent host. I haven’t experienced quite such a single minded listening room before, I thought my eyes were deceiving me when I first noticed that the ceiling and walls were gently sloped away from the listening position. The silence between notes and the amount of low level information you can hear with such a low noise floor is quite something. Maybe I can fit some sound absorbers to my children… It’s obviously been a real labour of love for Gregg and the room felt like something out of a bond movie and I wondered that if you pushed the wrong button on the remote, a shark infested pool might open up in the floor. It was really great afternoon and was nice to get to know a lot of wammers better and listen to some good tunes. Hopefully I’ll get out to one or two more bake offs this year.

    Stair Trolley

    Hi Robert, thats a very kind offer and I may well take you up on it. I'm up in the gods in syndicate 17. I was expecting to have an easy time of it as my speakers are small standmounts but my amp and dac have recently been sprouting outboard psu's:doh: You'll have a fantastic time exhibiting and looking at your kit I'm sure you'll have lots of visitors. If in doubt I've found that a plate of chocolate digestives can work wonders. I'll come and give you a look on saturday afternoon, Cheers, Clive

    Check your details please (show guide)

    Hi Richard, Syndicate room 17, could you please remove the references to the Pye amp and the lenco turntable, i'm afraid they won't make the trip this time. Thanks very much for doing this, Cheers, Clive

    Notice to all exhibitors

    Just replied James, please see comments attached as I'm just heading off to tonight for a skiing trip tomorrow. Cheers, Clive
  14. Good point Stuart, have now edited. Thanks very much for everyone's help, it sums up what's good about the Wam
  15. Apologies to the moderators if I've put this in the wrong section but Ian Sampson is urgently trying to get into contact with with Stewart. He is in Lytham and arranged to meet up with Stewart last night but there is no answer at the door. Ian hasn't got access to the internet so has asked me to quickly post a message on the Wam to see if Stewart has been called away at short notice. Many thanks, Clive
