    Baggawire's Beckenham Bake Off

    After having broken two ducks in one by both attending and exhibiting at this year's Scalford, I am holding my first bake off on Saturday 2nd June. I can comfortably accommodate 6 people and whilst my system's not exactly box swapping friendly feel free to suggest some kit to bring along. Otherwise grab some of your best tunes particularly if you want to hear any Rock or similar (I don't own any) although I can offer access to all manner of funkiness from across the globe. Cheers.

    Attendees:

    Hayward

    Happy to operate a subs bench if required.

    I am only 50/50 at the moment as I may have some transport issues.
    Still hoping to make it though.

    Kevin, did you resolve your transport issues? If not it's not that big a deal to come and pick you up in Hove. Let me know...

    Yes, thank you Ian! The first one I've been to and I really enjoyed it. Great to be able to put faces to some of the names I've come across on here... The food was fab! I haven't eaten better Caribbean ever... I was really impressed with the music played too, I left with a load of new ideas. Best moments of the day for me were the back to back Tito Puente/Fania Allstars tracks (this coincided with Dean going for a smoke so it may have been just that I wasn't trying to listen over the er, stream of consciousness!!) and the bass-off between Gareth and Dean. Not sure who won but it really showed off what the Yams can do. Looking forward to meeting you all again.

    Thanks to Ian and Jenny for allowing us to take over their house,special mention to Jenny's mum who prepared the wonderful food.
    Another interesting afternoon listening to a different system and music,most of which I had never heard before and of course meeting new people.

    Graham.
    Feeling old and with a bit of a hangover.

    Oh-and anyone that says all amps and cables sound the same are wrong.
    Four different preamps (ok, one of them we couldn't get to work) each with very different presentations and three sets of cables ranging from two to three figure prices.. Know which one sounded 'right' to me, without pointing fingers..

    Not sure we ever actually listened to the expensive ones through both channels though! Even first time around the vocal went hard left to my ears.

    Really liked the AR phono.... Impressed!

    I wish I could have shared some of it with you. I got a couple of bears down early and then sobered up while you guys got merry! Brilliant energy late on though, the music really started to flow... I loved the Cave.
