  1. Ashby room sorted as of 13:00 all 28' x 40' of it. Been to busy talking bollocks and listening to tunes to post earlier. Ushers are loving it, they like being let off their leash.

  2. Every year the effort of all the exhibitors is brilliant and the comments people are saying as they leave is that the music production is far superior to any of the professional trade shows. Well done everyone, its been bumper numbers and very busy. Already the requests for rooms for 2020 coming in. This years visitor number was 482.

  8. As above. It was with a degree of trepidation that a few weeks ago my ATCs found a new home and I took receipt of the following speakers. These were designed by my late father and brother about 25 years ago and accordingly are showing their age with a few dings. Cabinets are made of 30mm slabs of mahogany which, if memory serves correct, was particularly difficult to source. Size-wise, these measure (w)12 x h(24) x (d)14 inches so are fairly big units and are reassuringly imposing. The bases on which they are sat are made of ply and are loaded with sand and sealed. There are lockin

  9. The fairies transformed my room from a nightmare to a workable space in no time and I can’t thank them enough. This absolutely typifies what the WAM spirit is all about, great people and super helpful. Huge thanks to Lee from strictly stereo for measuring my room, creating the bespoke parametric EQ filters for the show resulting a really good set up given what the room had started out like. I couldn’t have do it without you. Big team effort and much respect due to all involved.

  11. Durham Cathedral has always had a no interior public photography policy. The only opportunity to photograph it's interior has been to join one of the quarterly photo sessions where 200+ people pay £10 and jockey for position (nightmare and pointless) or a couple of local photographers run private sessions at around £40 a couple of times a year. It seems the regular complaints from tourists and locals have now been listened to and a week or so ago restrictions were lifted. Still no flash and no tripods but it is now possible to photograph this fabulous World Heritage site yourself and living on

  12. Just got home, my thanks go to all the exhibitors for going to the trouble . Most rooms sounded fine, especially given the footprint they are working with. It could be me , but most of the better sounding rooms seemed to have a helping of DIY kit involved.

  16. I really enjoyed my visit today and the advice on this thread proved very useful. can I just say a huge thank you to the organisers and the exhibitors who I am sure put months of effort into the event - you did the whole WAM community proud

  18. If only that were true - single core with low capacitance, resistance and inductance will sound different to multistrand low capacitance, resistance and inductance. You can use loudspeaker cable to perform like tone controls (less strands less bass and so people feel the mids and tops are clearer). The thing is - there is no right or wrong answer here. Provided you like the sound your cables give you then fine as to getting into a debate about one being better than another .. well that is kind of daft because it all depends on the total make up of a system from source through to loud

  19. That can't be a definition of correctly though, can it Shadders. You might just as well define a correctly designed car as one which has the lowest possible fuel consumption and the lowest possibe 0-60 acceleration time. "Lowest possible" can be an aspiration but no more: even if you compare just two cables and one has, for example, slightly higher capacitance than the other and the other has slightly higher inductance, then neither is "correctly" designed as neither exhibits the minimum of all three. Only a range of each of these can be used to define correctly. And you can't provide suc

  20. Another great show today guys. Congratulations and a big thank you to everyone that organised, exhibited in and attended show. I thought the sound quality of the systems was better than ever. So many great sounding systems. I'm so glad I'm not building a system from scratch as I wouldn't know where to begin - so many designs and methods used, all achieving great things. Well done guys (and ladies that were involved).

  33. As an experienced coffee drinker, I’d say the best instant cup, is the one that supplies your desired tipple in the shortest time, with the minimum of effort. A “Bean to cup” machine, gives a fresh ground, fresh poured, and hot ready to drink cuppa, at the touch of a button. However, If you’re talking about the stuff that comes in packets, jars, or bottles, made by the likes of Notcafé, Tossemall, DireEgberts, or Camp , then I can’t help. I would rather wash my mouth with soap and water 🤮.

  42. Good eyes as well as ears Paul, and thanks. No area rug or sound panels although I installed both in my echo chamber called an office. Works great and looks good there but coudnt find a rug that fits the room from an esthetic perspective. Like the flow of the hardwood too. Not to much echo but it could be greatly improved. What is interesting about this house and room is all the drywall is not screwed directly into studs, they are suspended on strips creating an air gap I guess. As a result the house main floor is super quiet, strangely so. Yes need to separate cables but they are ca
