2017 Scalford classic system from the past fantasy room

Recommended Posts

In reality it sounded pretty mediocre IMO.

But....but....no, that couldn't be true.....that would mean the magazines all LIED!

These speakers

[video=youtube;FAhaKcnfBig]

Preferably paired with A Rockport Sirus III front end avec Kondo IO Ltd

Why?

I heard that very set up at Munich and it really wasn't up to much.

Except that it's a Teepee hotel, not a WigWam hotel......:geek:

Arnie Nudell's original Infinity IRS system. Must have been something back in the day.... probably made Isobariks weep. First picture is his own room. KK got to hear the system, Nudell only used master tapes.

KEF KM1s at BBC Maida Vale

http://www.kef.com/html/en/explore/about_kef/museum/1980s/Professional_Series_km1/index.html

I visited the studios just after they had been replaced by the pretty impressive PMC BB5 XBDAs, so missed hearing the KM1s.

S

Remember hearing these at one of the Heathrow shows in the eighties...

Almost mine - LP12, Ekos, ATOC9 MLII, Naim 72/HiCap/140

Only the speakers spoil the show. B&W CM2s, originally bought for bookshelves in our previous gaff. Now need stands but Mrs TLM won't allow.

The core of the system was bought in 92. Either a case of "if you wait long enough, it will come back into fashion" or "wow, vintage, was that your Grandad's?" or "great quality lasts forever". Of course I subscribe to the latter ;-)

Lets just put this thread right, time warp system.

Voyd the Voyd, Helius Cyalene, Milltek Olympia, Audio Innovations 1000 pre, 2nd audio mono blocks and Impulse H6 or Snell Jii or E.

Pretty much what I had 20 years ago when my ears worked and I had time to play in the years BC (Before Children) not AD (After daughters)!!

The way things are going you'll need to find a wormhole to another dimension to find a Wigwam show in 2017.:nerves:

i was just going to ask if there will be a show next year with all the recent uproar

A tardis is placed at the Wam's disposal for the 2017 show, and you are nominated to specify and retrieve a classic system from the past, consumer or pro.

Always hankered after hearing the HQD rig, myself:

And it'd be interesting to see how this stacked up against modern kit....surprisingly well would be my prediction.

What would you choose?

Love these photo's! Does this mean your going to be wearing a suit at the next Wigwam show Nial? :D

That Naim system still looks amazing, their equipment is ageless! I'd swap those speakers out though get a nice set of modern (but still tradition looking) Harbeths on it if it was mine. bit too many boxes for me personally though and the old school naim sound, but I'd still love to hear it.

And that Naim system would probably stack up against modern kit easily, but it would probably cost you the same if not a lot more to buy now!
