Scalford 2016 impressions

Recommended Posts

This is my first post on this forum, so be kind.

I made the trek to Scalford Sunday morning, arriving just after opening. Friendly people at entrance. After i looked at the program and asked for directions, they patiently explained the rabbit warren that is Scalford. In fact all people I met were friendly. Not a single exhibitor refused to play my left field music. All I had to do was to ask if they took requests and the answer was always yes.

The variety on show was extraordinary. I managed to visit almost all rooms but it would have been great to return to some for more insight, unfortunately time ran out.

General impressions: There is no correlation between age, cost or price of a system and quality. In fact some of the best rooms were vintage, DIY or (relatively) low cost affairs.

All of the exhibitors deserve applause, whether I liked the system or not, because it was obvious they all made the effort and after all personal differ. Just to clarify my tastes: I like music to sound live. Skale is important to me. I like neutrality but don't like aggressive treble. On the other hand dull rolled off treble doesn't do it for me. I prefer vinyl but ther is some good digital around. Tubes have a certain magic but so has cla

So here is my list of highlights

Welcome, glad you enjoyed it. I thought it was one of the best shows yet. The extra rooms and extra space afforded by the pavillion really worked. Everyone said the Park and Ride was a massive success. Really pleased to have my room full almost all day.
