There is a thread about the need for cross overs which has gone on for five pages. All the discussion is about the merits or shortcomings of single driver speakers, as advocated by some on Head Fi. There is no mention what so ever of the NVA design principle where speakers have two drive units with no cross over. This seems very strange, or is it. I suspect any post referring to a Cube would be instantly removed.

As an aside, Kegworth not getting a mention on the front page was raised. This would obviously take up advertising space. :lol:

One word (inspired by the AoS toilet)

Details of Kegworth have appeared very late in the day. Unlike the last Scalford and Harrogate there is no mention of trade or sponsors. I think this could explain the delay. They are not interested, either because PFP wants too much money or because of all the negative publicity about WasWam, not just on HFS.

They will be checking at the door to make sure that anyone with a £12 ticket is a super dooper wammer and not a fraud trying to avoid the full price. :lol:

PFP never let on the real reason why Kegworth replaced Scalford. He must have been aware that Scalford was on a very dodgy financial footing. The hotel went into administration last month, coming out of administration a week later when a new owner took over. To say the show moved to Kegworth, which has smaller rooms, out of choice is :Bllocks:

I'm sure he said it was partly due to the hotel increasing charges and the problems with parking. Kegworth is more easily accessible. Likely the old location would not make a profit in future or did not last year. Remember PFP is only in it for the money. I think the financial problems with Scalford hotel have likely come to light since the decision to move was made. Can't see PFP being privy to the hotels finances.

Had a look at the Kegworth website and it does seem better than Scalford. Plenty of space for sponsors and trade who are all the more conspicuous by their absence, considering PFPs financial motivation.
