This sounds the most significant bake off if it can be accomplished,
and from my limited exposure of the forum, Audio Talk is only forum that's agenda free to be fair to all participants,
hope everyone can leave their internet ego's behind and make it work,
nail your flag to the pole and let the Phonostages do the talking, looking forward to the result. 8-)
Frank...made me do it.

Have been reading the Audio Talk thread with interest after buying the Phono 1. Would be good if DQ was there, but would his attendance scare some off?
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

NVA BMU, Sonore microRendu/McRU PS, AQ J-bug, Wirewold Ultraviolet, Chord Qutest, NVA P90SA, NVA A80sMk2, NVA Cube 1s, NVA TSCS, NVA TIS mk2. Rega Planar 3, Denon DL-110, NVA Phono 1, NVA SSP Mk2, Grado SR 325e, headphones, Chord Mojo.

Second system
Arcam Miniblink Bluetooth DAC, Marantz pm 5004, Wharfdale Diamond 121, NVA LS2.

Out and about

I know exactly where their new shop is, and should it all get too much for some then may I suggest a swift 50 yard walk up the road to The Sportsman pub, a very fine hostelry which serves great ale :guiness;

Also, no more than 200 yards from the shop is a great record shop, Vinyl Tap, on John William Street which is open on a Sunday. Lots and lots of vinyl to pour over. http://www.vinyltap.co.uk

.
P20 + A30 + LS3 + SSC + Squeezebox Touch + Yiang Sheng DAC-01A + Sony BDP-S350 + Synology DS118 NAS + Cubettes sat on top of 70cm Atacama stands + Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 ohm headphones

Sounds like ideal location Dave's new shop, good pub and good record shop within spitting distance,

Checking the AT thread, it's shaping up to be an epic meet, hope someone brings a camera. 8-)

As is give us a job arkless .

Go to Aos and you will find a least five declarations from jez that his is the best phono stage under 1k . And yet his response to this phono comparison was " I will not be attending and I will not be sending"

He must be annoyed someone is taking one along :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
