I really agree that the more people that exhibit a system no matter how simple or how exotic the better . I can promise you it will be fun and the more rooms that aref illed the bettter the fun .

I thought the suitcase challenge was an interesting twist on the show :^ As much as I had no intention of exhibiting this year and perhaps just enjoying time swanning around the show indulging, I also realise its only Wam members that make this show great. Still early yet but was perhaps expecting a couple more exhibitors or new exhibitors but it really doesn't matter. The more variety and kit that turns up the more interesting it can become, it doesn't matter if the kit is old, new, cheap, exotic or even if its as simple as someone has already mentioned a couple of Sonos speakers set up well and playing some interesting music. It should be as always a great event.

Well said Eddie. As proof of this, I have always wanted to hear some Sonos speakers in a proper stereo set-up, so I for one will be keen to listen to that system.

That's right Barry let's hope who suggested it or anyone who is up for the challenge decides to get a room. I actually have friends with proper seperates who are contemplating selling the lot in favour of something like a Sonos or multi room jobbies. Can they sound better the answer is possibly if done right and in the right environment. And it is ultimately about the user enjoying and making the most from their music, as hi-fi's / music systems don't sound great if they're never used.

On that note Tony, are we allowed to know what your criteria are? Do things like VFM, innovative  ideas etc factor in, or are you going for pure SQ regardless of cost?

As per the initial post, the winning system will be the one that sounds best to me. So DIY gets as fair a chance as £££ off-the-shelf.

A NOTE TO ALL POTENTIAL SUITCASE CHALLENGERS...

So far, the spreadsheet only shows one entry that identifies as a Suitcase Challenge system (Special Requirements column). It would be a great shame if there was only one system to choose from. If you are bringing a suitcase challenge system, please sign up for a room and make a note in the SR column that it is to be entered into the challenge.
