  1. Wow that wins the award for most delayed response but I'm flattered by anyone still remembering over 2 weeks after the event!! It was my pleasure indeed Redmond - unconditionally! ! [emoji6] Now there's just a little matter of a nasty big tree stump to take care of and a handy man I know with multiple chainsaws! [emoji53] Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  2. Great, let everyone know I've rammed Dr John down your throat - @Luc takes much delight in mocking my old timers nostalgia playlist ! It is getting on a bit this one Pete - bit of a mixed bag with Live albums (and old Dr John) but it's all about recreating the concert atmosphere rather than focusing on the sound quality constantly isn't it?
  3. Was an excellent evening - I was seated centre at far back wall and the Willis room is notoriously difficult to get the acoustics right. The Maya amplifier acquitted itself admirably with a good range of musical genres - very dynamic and natural sound recreating what was recorded . The Kef speakers had a bit of bass bloom from the room and don't plumb the depths bottom end wise with a rated 50hz range limit so within their limitations a very good performance. Most I spoke to were highly impressed by Hugh's Maya and he gave an interesting insight to his methodology and painstaking tweaking circuit design wise to arrive at his amps preferred sonic signature .

  4. So could have done with this - trying to put together a cheapish system to pretty well donate to hard up friends of my son who would love a stereo system . What else have you got available? How about I back up to the JB Hifi dòor ? [emoji53] Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  5. Some of us move on - Brian ! Onwards and upwards and all that . (even @buddyev is ! ) But I have good people that can ! You can talk Redmund - in fact I struggle to interrupt you !
  6. Billy was absent though - who was the most likely culprit? My money is on devious darth or questionable@Quark [emoji10] Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  7. We all pay a high price to come to one of my GTG's. The non complainers even get to come back ! [emoji53] Alright - who stole UM's Bolle's ?? Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  8. Misplaced priorities huh??
  9. Choke splutter - little suburban bush house ??? Oh you mean the one down by the Crik !! Antiquated system? ?? Hmmm - well my main amp was built in 2000, speakers in 2012 and turntable in 1987 so maybe that is getting on but already have revitalized it with new PSU and arm plus full cirkus upgrade kit ready to fit ! You'll keep young Splyne ! [emoji53] Maybe next one later on in year - you can car share with@darth vader [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  10. I had a La Boca MM MC phono of Marks and for the money it was excellent - easily bettering a Dynavector P75 mk11. Sold it a few years ago though. Worth talking to Mark what he has. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  11. It seemed to do the job alright I spose - I think Mk2 might be even better ! I'll take this rudimentary prototype version off your hands - TB
  12. Yeah thanks mate - same to you with yours, pity not in your neck of the woods to hear the gear ! Hope we can have something along similar lines on the Hifi show weekend .
  13. To be honest everyone was having such a good time socializing outside and I had music playing through my back up gear ! I had to prompt a few members to go upstairs to hear the main system mid afternoon but here's a pic of what I remember playing.
  14. Had a largish gathering on Saturday afternoon at evil Springs to celebrate Autumn and to reunite with my audio brethren ! I was very cunning in my preparations nominating everyone to contribute in some form food wise, and boy did we have a feast on our hands! @Tubularbells most generously cooked up a 7.5kg Beef Brisket topped off with some 2.5kg (almost) Pulled Pork - Here we see the "Meat Maestro" in action massaging the meat into submission! Couldn't even pick the meat up, it just fell apart was so tender! (Dog was never far away!!) @illusion also rose to the occasion and brought some freshly marinated Chicken wings and legs , as a bonus he even cooked them up himself ! Beautiful flavors too. Unfortunately my normal photographer was otherwise occupied with trivial family matters (not naming anyone @:) al) so very few quality shots to display of the attendees: @Quark @unclemack @Sierra @joz @darth vader @PonyTail @djb @Black Orange @daviddsailor @Point source @PleasantSounds @Red MacKay and Doug Tipping. Smile for the camera - everyone ! That means you @Sierra !!! Hitchcock scene from Birds ! All eyeing @djb waiting for an opportunity to strike ("he'll never see us coming!) Ultrasonic record cleaner Masterclass by TB with @Red MacKay & @joz Brought up my records to flawless condition without a hint of crackle - pity no one else got a chance to have theirs cleaned ! Unfortunately no pictorial evidence of numerous salads and desserts most generously brought along but was heartily demolished along with all the meat ! (gasp) Bugg3r all of system either but you've probably seen it enough times - here's one of The Wand recently fitted to my LP12 and sounding very nice too! So had a fantastic afternoon with a few kicking on till nearly 11pm - my thanks to everyone for making it such a success and all I need now is someone else to hold a GTG for a change ! Nah, it's all good fun ! P.S. We missed you Billy !
