    And then some, plus electricity cost for all those lights

    nice pictures Chris, enjoyed looking - those McIntosh amps would give people who hate LEDs nightmares

    thanks, plenty enough as the bass drivers are both active

    very nice, many thanks for sharing looking at the Boenicke room and wondering what amps were being used? (driving I assume W13SEs)

    Looks like Bristol or York are favourites but no offers in yet

    There’s a great write up of his journey on PFM, well worth a read

    If I find an excuse I will, although I tend to travel northward to see #1 (Aberdeen) and only down as far as Coventry for #2 #3 is sitting A levels this year so who knows where he will end up!

    Welcome to the wam, although I would slightly disagree as a well run in pair of W8s do sound better with bigger current. For example I had a Meridian 556 (170W into 4ohm) and whilst OK moving to approx 400W amp with massively upgraded transformers (3 replacing 1) made them come alive. HOWEVER valve amps are different, at our show in March we used a John Wood KT88 amp, rated 100W into 8ohm but using the 4ohm taps from the hand wound transformers the W8s sounded massive and went loud when required. i never have never heard the W13s but would love to, am I right in saying the bass units are actively driven, if so I guess a nice SET would sound lovely, being cheeky don’t suppose you’d consider bringing them to our annual show in March?
