Impressions

My personal favourite dem's were both of those by Tannoy, Musical Fidelity (using PMC speakers) and Neat, though many others came close.  Only a few disappointed, most of those being due to ghastly music choices (loud, rough and raucous, hardly the sort of material with which to showcase the finer points of any stereo system) which deterred us from staying for more than a few seconds.

All in all, a show with more musically engaging systems on dem than I can remember for many years.  A great event.
