More often than not pretty underwhelmed with the sounds produced but still like to see and fiddle with all the expensive stuff.
I might go then and meet up with you then if that's OK? I'll PM you my mobile number.
Quite keen to listen to the Hugo TT2 and MScaler. Also the Kii Audio 3.
Was great to chat to our fiend George over a, very reasonably priced, cup of coffee.
Most of the equipment on dem was, as expected, not my cup-of-tea but there were a couple of rooms that I liked - (and you're going to hate this Doc ! )
The first was the little Falcon Acoustics LS3/5A's. They were making some very reasonable music that I was happy to sit and listen to. Those tiny wee boxes always amaze me with the scale of their reproduction, not perfect but still enjoyable.
The big shocker was the Kii Audio 3 speakers. They are everything I usually despise in a speaker - multiple drivers powered with separate class D amps and with DSP signal processing - a sure fire recipe for disaster but I was spellbound! Sure they were REALLY impressive with electronic music from Kraftwerk and Yello(?) but what surprised me was that they could also sound musical. Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong sounded hair-raisingly good. They reminded me of electrostatics in some ways but not quite so effortless. Very impressive and I really liked them! What a shock.
Good class D works in dems and impresses as the circuit does some thing very well, but live with it, then I doubt it, that is where they always fall down. Often people can't even put their finger on it - they are just wrong.
