    Exeter Bakeoff - 5th/6th May

    So, the Wench is galavanting off to foreign climes for a short while, so I'm thinking of holding a bakeoff of some description on the weekend of the 5th/6th May. Cannot fit that many people in due to the size of the house. All I can promise is that the food will be better than my hifi!

    Any preferences for either of those dates then let me know. If enough people are interested I could even manage both days.

    So, current list as follows:

    Samantha
    Sodders
    Syep
    Russ Abbott
    DavidSims
    Jerry

    That would definitely be a full house, but I'm aware that a number of you are pencilled in.

    All extra kit to play around with is very welcome. I shall ride out the ensuing period of depression that will follow as manfully as possible.

    Perhaps the beard as well? I think it makes a fable combo with the C5 :-)

    Given that both of those are obligatory in Devonshireland then you should be alright.

    I take it from that the Beards are heavy buggers?

    I think we could just about fit you in Dave. Might get a touch squashed but that's all part of the fun.

    I should probably warn people that the hifi is in the dining room so it's dining room chairs to sit on rather than sofas. I'll get rid of the table for the day to give us as much space as possible.

    Hi, I've just discovered this, I am new to Wigwam. I PMd Russ Abbott and he mentioned this bake off. I live in Plymouth, so if you get a space I would love to come along, even if only to see what happens. I use an Oracle Delphi 1 with upgrades, various arms, carts. and SUTs, Yaqin MS12-B phono amp, Meridian 200 CD transport with Teradak Chameleon DAC, Promitheus TVC, Ben Duncan design active xover, Ming Da MC84-C, MC845-C monoblocks, Parasound HCA1205-A and speakers using Ted Jordan and SEAS units. Everything is transportable except the monoblocks and speakers.
    I realise you are full, but please bear me in mind.
    Regards,
    Richard.

    Ok, herpa-derpa moment; I've just realised that this is the bank holiday weekend.

    So what I'm thinking is that I'll run this over both the Saturday and the Sunday and people can visit on whichever days they would prefer. If people can let me know which they'd rather, as everyone turning up on one day would make things rather manic!

    Richard, would be great to have you given the increased capacity that spreading it over the weekend will give.

    Thanks Jon, I'll check with the boss and see when I'm allowed out to play. As I'm new to this format, what should I bring with me? Ok, just checked, and we are at a wedding in Bristol on the 5th, so it would have to be the 6th. That will mean dashing home from Bristol in the morning, picking up whatever I need, and driving back to Exeter! What sort of time are we talking about on Sunday? It's all do-able, I just need a timetable.

    Nothing too early on Sunday; let's say 11:00am at the earliest, but if you want to rock up at 13:00 then that's all fine too.

    As to deciding what to bring, that's all part of the fun! My current kit list is below. The only thing I will say is that there may not be anywhere suitable to put a turntable, as there is a certain amount of compromise in where my kit has ended up etc. and they really don't suit going on the floor at all as far as I know. Nothing against the black stuff at all, just a matter of logistics. The pre is probably the weak link in the chain, so if you want to bring the Promitheus then that would be good to me, but if you want to add other things that's all grand too. Naturally the monoblocks are of interest but can more than appreciate getting them here is a bit much!

    Kit List:
    PC into Musical Fidelity X-24K DAC
    NAD C320 BEE on pre-amp duties
    Vincent SP-T100 monoblocks
    Triangle Celius speakers
