Looking at the room request list, there aren't enough punters to make it worth doing another "suitcase challenge" (and besides, if it happens, it is someone else's turn!).  If someone wanted to take up the cudgel gauntlet and organise a challenge, then more power to your elbow.
OK, thanks - I'll leave my suitcase at home and focus on the main rig.

Didn't we start a tradition that this would be last year's winner...?

How about limited budget next time with a few interesting parameters, such as.
£500 limit
must use bookshelf speakers
must have 2 sources
no subwoofer
something like that.
Not sure why you should have to restrict the size of the speakers, it's about the cost. For the deferred 2020 show, how about sub £1000 with any size speakers allowed? I've managed to get a reasonable system together for less than that. I'll need someone with a van to help me though [emoji1]

For now due Covid-19, why not everyone showing their systems and their auditions rooms sharing their music in real time, like a few decades ago, when the computer games started online. Just an idea for keep our menthal sanity a bit more healthy...

I think some where having issues with YouTube copyright removing videos due to the music being played. I posted a 30 second clip on the forum itself (less than 2mb) by using a compression app (called Compressor) on the footage shot on my phone. Quality might not be the best but it captures the spirit. I’ll post another later today.

so best to keep away from YouTube nannies eh?

a very simple iPad recording turn the sound right up as a bit quiet, likely needs an external mic, hosted in OneDrive storage: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AjzW-2XbaL-GkJwo6avXLZjOg0nI1A?e=sulFFS
