Unbelievably, I am in! Doing the Suitcase Challenge

Posted (edited)

Bazzer has kindly agreed to lend a pair of stands from the auction. So this is also a sound quality demo of a nice pair of slim and tall speaker stands. See the charity auction thread for pic. These will be on sale in room 12 on behalf of Bazzer, all proceeds to charity. Place your bids! Here or at the show.

I hear these stands are heavy!

@AlmaAtaKZ Welcome happy that you were able to get a room and enjoy yourself . I know it can be a little diunting but no need to let be . All (most) of the visitors to the rooms are both friendly and enthusiastic and some even appreciate the effort you make to take a room and let them hear your system . Saturday is fairly chilled and if you do it right (not like I did last year) then you can get round and listen in comfort to few of the other systems which can be difficult on the Sunday due to time and number of visitors.

Make sure after you arrive that you get set up and have things working as soon as you can then the rest after that is your time till Sunday morning . There is a thread for those looking for room sitters if you need one add your name and I am sure you will get a volunteer .

I get the impression that @Bazzer has been practicing his scowling "how much?! get serious, please, this is a classic piece of kit" and, optionally "you'll be supporting a good cause". I can't wait.

If you get on a Kegworth bus it will bring you past the hotel.

Actually scratch that. Looking on maps, thebus would probably go a different route. If you are coming up on Saturday I can come and pick you up. I'll be busy Sunday though.

That would be fantastic! Thank you for the offer! I shall take it up!

Yes, Saturday. Large suitcase, likely with cables dangling behind 🙏
