hello headphone fans
sorry I have been rather busy and forgot all about the september meet, I have booked a table at the show so will bring an alladins' cave of goodies for you all to listen to and look at, of course there will be the fill hifiMAN range, others no doubt will bring some too, I also intend to bring the Furutech GT40 to the show and the new Furutech Esprit DAC/Headphone amp when it finally arrives in the UK, its been delayed due to a shortage of computer chips. Oyaide make a fine set of up-grade cables for many popular headphones so I will bring some of those as well. As far as headphone amplifiers go I have heard quite a few over the years but there is one that takes some beating for the money. The Canor TP10 Valve Headphone Amplifier. 
 

 
Please see me at the show for a special offer on this, or if you cannot wait till then contact via my website. Finally I have donated some goodies to the cause, plenty for everyone.

David,
 
Would you kindly send me a PM detailing what you intend to donate to the charity raffle and I'll add the items to the prize list.
 
Cheers,
 
Andy.

Raffle update...
 
There will be another fantastic raffle prize update this weekend.
 
So start thinking about an analogue sounding DAC with an innovative power supply that `sounds' silky smooth and extremely non digital. As part of the package that I've agreed with the manufacturer, there'll be a quality mains and USB cable bundled with the DAC too.
 
Good stuff!
 
Andy.

Guys,
 
Here's a clue. By regional I mean the counties of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Also, the festival title mentions a specific musical genre.
 
Cheers,
 
Andy. 
           
   
    Ely Folk Festival?   I have been a couple of times, mainly to get to hear Eric Bogle. Otherwise it is Cropredy for me :)

John Dawson,
 
You are correct and are now the proud owner of a Bottlehead.com baseball cap.  

 
For those of you not familiar with Ely Folk Festival - http://www.elyfolkfestival.co.uk/ - it's a splendid weekend of great music, questionable dancing and mellow times. Attendee numbers are strictly controlled so there's always plenty of room to roam about. Whilst the festival doesn't attract `mega stars', the acts are always top quality and I've discovered some real musical gems there. 
 
Cheers,
 
Andy.

Being from East Anglia and proud of my Nordic ancestry, I'd be somewhat perturbed to be considered a `Southerner'.
 

 
Cheers,
 
Andy.

Can confirm I'll be able to bring an NAD M51 DAC... because I just bought one for my speakers. If anyone is interested in slotting it in between their laptop and headphone amp I'd be happy to leave it plugged in their all day as I'll try and make it for start to finish.

Somnambulist,
 
Congratulations on your purchase.
 
The NAD M51 DAC will be a fine addition to the meet and I've added it to the equipment list.
 
Cheers,
 
Andy.

Raffle update...
 
Unfortunately Teddy Pardo won't be joining us in September as he has a wedding to attend. 
 
Teddy has very generously agreed to ship over a TeddyDAC for demonstration at the meet and then inclusion into the charity raffle. Here's a website link - http://teddypardo.com/Products/DACs/DACs.html
 

 
What a fantastic prize!
 
Cheers,
 
Andy.

This meet is just getting bigger and bigger. Very well done on getting so much attention, it is just much more known than the meet we had last year.

Ra97oR,
 
Thanks for your encouragement. 

 
I really hope that lots of folks attend the meet and have a great time. Audio manufacturers are shipping some nice gear for demonstration and inclusion in the raffle, so it'd be nice to repay their commitment by generating a few sales leads for them.
 
Cheers,
 
Andy.

Forgot to mention earlier that the TeddyDAC will come bundled with good quality mains and USB cables too.
 
Cheers,
 
Andy.
