As I am doing the North West Audio Hi-Fi show the weekend before I am now not sure if I will come, it depends how knackered I am in the week before.

IYO only and that of your ass wipes. LOL

We all terminate some day, lugging 30+ heavy boxes from the shop into the van and out to my room then back again on my own as I do for most shows will probably be my downfall which you will probably celebrate as I often get the impression you would welcome MCRU not being in existence at least you can go pick on someone else then maybe?

You stick your head above the forum parapet with grossly overpriced shite, on top of which at least one of them is illegal in the UK and you refuse to stop selling it, thereby breaking the law. There are more than a few of us who feel the same, YOU and others like you are the #1 problem in our hobby.

You are a personable nice guy in person, like me, but we both have hidden personas, you problem is your business and it is a bloody disgrace, it is just slurp and nothing else. My problem is I am on a campaign against people in our hobby who act like you. As I said you stick your head above the parapet to be shot at, so you get shot at, most of the other slurpers give a far lower profile and rely on the bullshit blogs like Pig and the corrupt magazines to find most of their victims.

Curiously this forum has the people who have the the total opposite attitude to you, they build it themselves for relative peanuts. I have been to two of your bake-offs and I struggle to see anyone there who would be your customer. I mean I ask you, say again how much that speaker amp combo you used sells for. In Uddersfield you could buy a house for that.

Anyway we are well off topic, I really don't think we can see eye to eye about this industry in any way. I have spent 40 years trying to counter the bullshit and slurp and brainwash that has at times dominated this industry, in the past I could be lied about dismissed called mad and everything else that went with it because what I said was a threat to the crooks who virtually ran this industry, BUT because of the internet more and more people are seeing it my way, roll on the days when it becomes a real hobby again, not just some business mans slurp, and *largely* the people here are in that process.

The tube manual is quite like a telephone book. The number of it perfect. It is useful to make it possible to speak with a girl. But we can't see her beautiful face from the telephone number

Steve mentioned earlier that he was concsious of lower numbers this time and consequently maybe a limited amount of gear...it seems his concerns are no longer....

I had planned:

se lateral fet amp
pp lateral fet amp(if I can tame it in time)
new alpair 10 monitors(no tweeter hooked up)
old vofos for se amp(3 watts with a following wind)
