    Classical Music day at Wokingham, 23 June any takers?

    Before I put this in the bakeoff section, I'm floating it here ... I'm thinking of running a day of classical music listening on June 23, when the wife will be off working in China.

    Anyone who posts here who has been to a bakeoff knows that feeling when you put on the lieder or string quartet or piano record, and suddenly everyone disappears off to text the wife or whatever .... only returning with the quirky girl with guitar is safely back on (and you thought that classical music only got rid of adolescent mall rats?).

    Well it's about time we turned the tables ... let's have a full day of unashamed classical music listening, with none of that pop/rock/jazzy music allowed. I held one of these about three years ago and it was one of the best days' music listening I'd had in ages.

    I'll have my Voyd/Io/An Arm3/Kondo AN S6c SUT, Nick Gorham phono stage, AN CDT Two/II transport, AN 3.1 Balanced DAC, and the Tannoy 15in MG GRFs, plus new arrivals Icon Audio 845i monoblocks and a preamp TBA.

    The say should be more about sharing new music than swapping out bits of hifi, but if anyone wants to put a streaming front end up against the CDT Two (or a seriously high-end DAC against the AN DAC) that might be quite interesting ....

    Arrival probably 2-ish, with some nosh early evening and going on till late as you like. Only about 80% probability at the moment but if I can have some names that would be great (only one system so limited to maybe 5-6 at most)

    Are your Tannoys active, Tom? I could bring my computer, complete with digital crossover, and set it up if poss.

    That's if I can make it - I may be carless that day, will check...

    Not active any more ... there were benefits but a lot of extra complexity.

    Why do you want to swap for the MBLs?

    This sounds like a great idea. I'm in, if there is room.

    Would have loved to have attended this but my mum has requested my presence for the day!

    Hope you arrange another one I can make.

    Unfortunately my clinics have already been booked that day. Looks like I will not be able to make it

    I'm gutted. Classical bake off is just my cuppa and would love to hear your kit Tom. Have a great day and hopefully can do this another time

    Hi Tom,

    Gutted to be missing this - I am just about to relocate to Wokingham area on the 25th June. Bugger.

    Hopefully it'll be a great success and you have another!

    Cheers

    Also have morbid curiosity to hear my Devialet via an Audio Note transport.

    Shame I can't make this. I nominate someone play the Schmidt 4th symphony in my absence, my usual gambit at such events.

    Guys, I think I will have to reschedule this ... when setting the date I was assuming I had a handle on when my system was all going to be sorted out, but several false starts later I'm not so sure things just aren't clicking into place as anticipated.

    I think I'm beginning to get a handle on what needs to happen so I may have progress to report in the not too distant.

    Likely to be kicked into July in any case ...

    OKey Doke. July is fine. Maybe some of the folks who couldn't make June 23 can now make it.

    .... not the whole of Schmidt 4, surely, Duncan?

    It's only one movement!

    I thought this event was for the longer-attention-span gentleman (and lady of the better sort)
