     Yes
    Here's a huge thankyou to Rob for his excellent hospitality (good beer, fine curry, cracking fried breakfast - especially the black pudding !) and to everyone for the great company that you were this weekend. The music was an education and the kit was a revelation. All of it was really interesting but in particular I now know that I need to get hold of a DL-103. And, as Richard said, the Kolts really did make a few converts this weekend ! Thanks again Rob,

    VB

    Yes, splendid weekend! Great to meet you all and hear some lovely kit playing great music

    Highlights for me were Grahams lovingly rebuilt Radford, Henrys gorgeous AR and Robs Kolts (which I warmed to greatly over the two days). I'd post some pics but looks like Rob has that well covered already.

    Thanks to all but particularly to Rob for his exceptional hospitality
    The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

    Looks like I missed out on breakfast, but I suppose a roast dinner at the in-laws was more than compensation enough!
    Thanks Rob, Rich and Graham for a fascinating afternoon/evening. Loved the kit I heard and the Radford was one of those moments when you recognise what the fuss is about. Annoyingly I left my D70 behind because it needed some TLC only to find the kit and expertise it needs was all at Robs!
    Just to complete the kit list above, I brought a Transfiguration Aria. Phono stage was my Aqvox Phono 2CI. Pre was my Sonic Euphoria passive.
    Rob, the food was delicious and I was in the mood to have had a beer or 2 more, but had to drive home!
    Thanks again.
    Let me get this straight. You take a perfectly good CD and put it in a DVD player??!!

    Thanks Rob really enjoyed myself, the cake, coffee and the company. Learnt a few new things and have just bought 3 more CD's listening to some great sounds. Great little system the Kolts in particular and as for the price for the Luxman and Denon what a stonking bargain! Liked Graham's Radfords and the tutorial on vintage valve amps! Goldust. Thanks.
