Big Spaces for Big Systems 2020

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I must have had a beer too many - Viper 7 is my handle on another forum.  But this forum is much more interesting Jester 7 calling . . . 

Is there a published list of exhibition rooms as some members seem to know who is next to me?

I'm looking forward to hearing the big Kii, I'm next door though so keep those 3.5kW down a little :D

I read this wrong thinking it was 3.5 watts.. 

I tend to think that 20 watts is excessive.

Yup - 3.5kW must be a room heater :dunno:

Actually it is 3.5KW each channel - total 7KW.  George 47 has heard the system last year and is right, you may not have to actually visit the room to hear the system.

But I am also bringing my Krell KSA250 (140 lbs weight) which has less power. (https://www.stereophile.com/content/krell-ksa-250-power-amplifier-specifications)

That Krell is a room heater outputting 0.5KW heat just switched on.  Will drive 0.5 ohm speakers to 4KW per channel.

Looking forward to my first exhibition at Kegworth . . .

So to whet everyone's appetite this is what you can expect to have lined up for your aural pleasure in the big spaces in 2020.

There are 4 rooms and due to exceptional demand a total of 6 systems have been squeezed in - the two largest rooms having an alternating rota on two different systems.

Myself and Zim will share a large room with a mix of vinyl and digital front ends, lots of valves and contrasting vintage speakers - stacked ESL57's and Snell type A's.

Lurch will be going solo with an alternative Quad flavour with his 989's

Open baffle loveliness will be offered by Orangeart and his Linkwitz Orion's in the third room.

Finally, and you have been warned, with a combined 10kW of amplification between them MF1000 and Jester 7 will be testing the hotel foundations with contrasting approaches to sonic devastation.  Jester with his latest tech active Kii 3's whilst MF1000 goes for the good old cubic inches approach with his fully active KEF and home brew sub woofers.

No excuses, see you all next month. You know you want to...:^
