Last reminder for the Hifi Wigwam Show at Kegworth this weekend - 17th March, I've created (most of) my playlist on Tidal so you can choose something in advance.

For those of you who can't make it, you can hear what you'll be missing :)

Will be playing Lejonklou in Room 120.

Any forum members attending will be welcome for an informal gathering at 1pm in Room 120.

Hope to see some of you there. Over 35 systems to have a listen to this year.

I do hope to make it so my ears can compare a set up very similar to mine, Only the Kabers and cables...

Best of luck with your events Neil & John!
A real pity I can't join in, but hopefully I'll meet up with you later again this year.

All the best and do well,

Looks great Neil and very thoughtful to have the speaker finish match the Tundra lights ;-)

Have a great show and happy to hear some impressions from those that may attend.

Its non-competitive, always has been and I think it is best that way. When you see comments from attendees about which systems they preferred, there's very rarely any consistency. Although there was a subset suitcase challenge that had a prize awarded this year.

Many thanks to all attendances on the Lejonklou event at ågrens hifi. It was a really great weekend! And many thanks to Fredrik Lejonklou for the excellent demonstration of his amplifiers. I fully agree with his review a few posts up. I'm really delighted to offer Lejonklou products in the shop and I will always evaluate and try to find the most musical additional products among our brands. Our most musical stereo systems definitely include Lejonklou amps in my own humble opinion. Also remember the hierarchy which makes the new Slipsik 7 even more fantastic product, and as long as you have a Boazu, you're doing ok! ;)

Please contact me at info@agrenshifi.se or (+46)031-810195 for inqueries or visit our webshop at www.agrenshifi.se.
May I ask what sources did you use at the demo?

Vinyl: Pro-Ject RPM 9 Carbon (not bad)+ the very cool JERN 12WS (I liked them)
Agree with all comments about Gaio 2 vs Slipsik 7. I have a Boazu so I will be fine if i buy the Slipsik :)

Digital: Meridian 808v6 (or similar) + PCM fact.8 (?)
Unclear how good 808 was, speakers are probably really good but didnt fly until Mono-Mono.

Thanks Nicklas and Fredrik for a great demo!

Very interesting show - my first time at this Hi Fi Wigwam event.

Sunbeams system was the first Exakt system I have enjoyed - worth going just for that. Maybe they all need a set of Lejonklou amps and expert optimisation to get them singing.

Some fascinating systems with 40 - 50 yr old amps / speakers and even Turntables from the 60s which were quite musical.

One or two do it yourself chaps making cross overs for active systems and building their own speakers - both good, one particularly impressive.

Best turntable I heard was a Majik LP 12 with Lingo 1 and Ittok - partnered with an old integrated amp and 40 yr old JBL speakers recovered from a skip.

Thanks for the positive feedback u252 and it was great to meet you, Spannko and Husky99 and to catch up with David Neel of course.
I'm pleased you enjoyed the whole show as a newcomer, its certainly an experience!
I heard there were 480 attendees which is nice to see, up from 350 last year which was heavily impacted by snow.

Yes that's correct. Thank you TMV! The Meridian streamer is model 818 without cd-player (808 is very similar with CD-player). It's really good actually but I never compared to Linn only naim streamers. Last time I did it we were three persons listening which all of us agreed that Meridian 818 is a better source than original naim NDX + XPS DR. I personally have used meridian streaming for 7 years and never needed anything more since some of their products represent excellent value for money and simplicity. Meridian 218 which is vastly less expensive is a fantastic source for that money. The Media Core 200 is a excellent product too imho but it's getting a bit old now. Meridian sources representing maximum musicality for the money most of the times IMHO (outside the Lejonklou parish at least).

It was really good to hear another Tundra driven system. Thank you Sunbeamgl and nice to meet you.

My first visit to the show and makes a nice change to others where they are doing their very best to sell you something.

Shh .... ! Don’t tell everyone how good the L40’s were! The price will double before I manage to get a pair!

it's now only two days to Kantata Audio's event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast!

I hope this will be a really good show with lots of curious and enthusiastic visitors. Manufacturers will be present and of course John, the man himself.

Sadly some annoying virus has hit me and I just decided it's unwise to travel with aching muscles and a sour throat. My apologies, but I won't make it this time. :(

Have fun on Saturday 23rd March and please do report on what happened!

I wish I'd heard your system at Wigwam as well. It appears a lot of people were impressed.

A great day in Belfast! Congratulations to John on organising a very professional event. The rooms were much bigger than the normal hotel bedrooms, as they were a suite of meeting rooms of a proper size, equipped with armchairs and sofas. The coffee was good and the chocolate and raspberry scones superb! And as a bonus, the systems sounded somewhere between very good and excellent, in particular the one with Sagatun, Tundra and Kudos Titan 505s.

Well done John!

It was great to meet up with you again David Neel , The rooms were way above average hotel show rooms, large and comfy. Some very good sounds were being made.

Like you the Lejonklu room with the smallest Kudos Titan speakers 505's was really putting out some good tunes. It also had the baby Innuos streamer, the other rooms had kudos 606's and 707's with zenith and statement streamers and middle and top end Hegel amps.

There were no bad sounds at that show, well done John of Kantata audio and innuos, Audioquest , kudos and Hegel for putting on such a professional event. A pity Fredrik was sick and wasn't able to make it. Next year .......
