Scalford Hifi Show. 3rd March 2013
No manufacturers, no dealers, just enthusiasts playing music on their own systems for other enthusiasts.

http://www.thehifishow.com/

It's back again - and the 2013 show will be bigger and better than ever before! Nicknamed the 'Pie-Fi Show' due to its superb location just outside the town of Melton Mowbray, this well-established and unique event in the annual hifi calendar offers visitors the opportunity to listen to a stunning variety of superb, 'real life' music systems.

From classic to modern; from computer source to vinyl; from Arcam to XTZ; and from budget to no expense spared - just about every possible way to reproduce music can be heard here. Best of all, the lack of any commercial involvement means that these systems have been assembled without any vendor constraints.

And unlike most hi-fi shows, you're welcome to bring your own music... and hear it like you've never heard it before!

I went last year, it was rubbish.... Not really it was brilliant, I just don't won't it to get to popular.

Not recommended for anyone who thinks new Is always best. Wink

Chord Blu, Chord DAC 64, Modified Lenco GL75, Kairn, 2 x Quad 303's, Celef PE1 (as well as other bits and bobs).

We prefer to believe a lie that we have heard a thousand times rather than the truth that we have heard only once.

I'll be exhibiting my ADS/0/1, AK/0/D, Majik/D amps and active M140s to wind up all the Linn haters who'll be there, and to educate those with more open minds. :-)

I'm lugging all my stuff down, except for the DS. I think we'll have a CD12 as the digital source.

Still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.

Don't agree with your sig slackboy - I'm definitely interested in your non-Linn stuff

Well, it'd be great if you could pop in for a listen, though how you do that when you're exhibiting I really don't know. I've got a couple of "helpers" who hopefully will enable me to sneak out for a quick listen or two.

I hope I can do the system justice, setting up so quickly in a small bedroom. It'd be such a shame to go to all that effort and have it sound rubbish.

We're downstairs, which hopefully means a solid floor. Fingers crossed there's something reasonably solid to sit the record player on.

Take your own TT furniture skackboy - the hotel only has wobbly tressle tables, some of which now in the middle. There was a lovely AVID there last year propped up at one end by 2 CD cases to try and get somewhere near level.

RE: Scalford Hifi Show. 3rd March 2013
Thanks for the tip. Some of the rooms have reasonably solid dressers and things, but I suppose it'd be daft to bank on getting something like that. Can't really take my wall shelf down with me though! Maybe a sturdy crate to pack stuff in will double as a table.
