Well it was pretty sparsely attended possibly because it was such a lovely day. There were only five rooms, all had turntables but only three of them were using them on both times I stopped in.
The system with the Soundsmith Strain Gauge was so much better than anything else it was embarrassing but then it was >£100k worth of SET and horn.
Frank Schröder was there and I caught half of his turntable set-up lecture - unfortunately I had to leave at three so didn't hear the end but there was some interesting information there. He should write a book or do a DVD like Fremer did. I was surprised at how young he is.
There was a guy in a room with some Pro-ject gear that he seemed openly dismissive of
. They now do a Dr Feckhart style protractor which I was considering spending nearly £100 on but he basically convinced me it was a waste of time
. Seems a strange way to do business.
Leema were there with their how-do-they-get-so-much-bass-from-4"-cones? speakers which were entertaining and, as always, relatively good value.
Still, it was only £3 which included free sandwiches, coffee and soft drinks so worth attending especially as it's local.
