A good day was had by all and many thanks to James for hosting the event and to Steve for helping out with the organising.
Everybody was in agreement about the performance of the Twin vs. Akurate amp comparison. I kept quiet about my thoughts until the other lads had had their say. After all I could perhaps have had expectation bias over that one since it was my Twin that was 'performing'. But have no fear, the difference was obvious and everyone heard it ........
I will leave the Linn vs Naim with all those that want to comment. Suffice to say that I prefer Linn Klimax amplification, since that is the route I have happily gone down, especially for extended listening. The Naim amplification has a real wallop to it that I personally find fatiguing after awhile. For many others the sheer presence of the Naim sound represents the very essence of their system. It comes down to personal preference ............
Roger's shelf performed really well on the cup and balls; I shall be getting one for sure ...............
Finally, the Hank Marvin album I bought along with me for possible use providing the odd comparison track or two went down a storm. Several of the Kabineers could be seen tapping away on their phones and ordering it on Amazon Prime .........
