With excellent attendance figures, with a wider range of systems than ever before, and with some monumental custom-built equipment, the 2016 Hifi Wigwam show has already been widely hailed as a real triumph, immensely enjoyed by exhibitors and guests alike.
The show is now an established event in the hi-fi calendar due to its unique format. The vast majority of rooms at the show (around 50 in total this year!) are hosted by enthusiasts, who bring their own systems, at their own expense, purely for the fun of it. For visitors, this is an unmatched opportunity to get to hear a vast range of systems and components, with a similarly vast range of sizes and costs.
And this year, the range was truly spectacular - from small standmount speakers to towering monsters and with sources ranging from notebook computers and reel-to-reel tape, to incredibly large and complex turntables.
