I missed last year's ASBO because I got so caught up in my wholesale move, but I might be able to make it this year, depending on where and when it is. Flights into Gatwick and Stanstead can be peanuts at times. It would depend on where the event is in relation to these. I won't make any firm plans as flights are often cheapest last-minute, but I will do my best. It would be really nice to meet others from here. If I can do it cheaply, I'd really like to attend. Having looked at last year's pics, at least I will know who's who. Sadly I won't be able to lug any gear due to luggage restrictions, but I can probably carry a few CD's and the odd LP.
Colin, I hope you don't mind me asking, but which Phono stage would you have put forward as a rival to Martin's? I know you've recently launched EWA products. Is it one of those? I'm not in a position to spend big bucks on a phono stage right now, but that may change soon, if I decide to (re)invest in vinyl properly. There's been a lot of talk about other phono stages lately, but I don't seem to recall yours being mentioned and I'd like to hear more about it if that's ok.
