But note the official photographic record at AoS done by Jerry deliberately avoided us.

MCRU with Lurcher on his lead just visited - the room emptied, been quieter ever since, I needed a break for a peeeeee (long one).
I find it best to send the Chauffeur in first in case there are any undesirables in the room.

BTW, can you let Ithi know I have just ordered a pair of those Headphones.

Comment mainly about the planar headphones, but if the headphone amp ain't good enough, good headphones will reproduce it -

I enjoyed every room I visited at this years show, for various different reasons.

I'd like to give a big thanks to everyone that exhibited.

The Ithilstone headphone room was a lot of fun, because it was different to every other room at the show.

Which headphones?

The £300 ones did a job for £300.
The £1100 ones were a reasonable compromise between price and ultimate sound quality.
The £3000 ones were nice if money were no object.
