‘Just as it's has always been , brilliant , with a few extra trimmings that took it up a notch’.
‘Really enjoyed wandering around this year meeting enthusiasts . I was reminded again of how much work is needed to setup and get max sounds in difficult rooms . Well done all . And Thankyou all .My taste ( bright open quick and powerful) was exactly met by a half dozen demo rooms and close by several others --all very satisfying . Some classic banter too. Rock on folks!!’
‘Saturday 1) the Bowie fest in the early hours, which got a certain legend all emotional, but that may have been my malt whisky (right) 2) having the freedom to play loads of music identified what would work well
Sunday 1) am owed a pint I'm sure if I don't mention a certain mod who fell asleep in our room (more than once) 2) this year it seemed more people were confident to ask for requests, visitors really have no idea how great than is, it is 100% better to play something that people are familiar with, more of that next year please 3) big thank you to the whole room who fell about laughing when I forgot to switch back from 45 to 33, looked like a Smash advert 4) only got round a few rooms, as expected that shipbloke and Robin had nice sounds’
‘My friend who attended the show had a light bulb moment this morning. The Wam show, compared to trade hifi shows, had many, many more rooms where the systems were producing music rather than sounds. I know that this is subjective but like me he is a professional musician so I trust his opinion. This show for my friend had far, far more value than trade shows. There is obviously a difference in a well put together carefully chosen system than 'the latest' from a manufacturer. If this is true then there is an interesting opportunity here both for buyers and the trade’.
Many thanks for convincing me to come to the show. It was more than I expected in just about every way. Shame I didn't make it to all rooms even just to say hello to everyone. Not enough time in the day. Can't wait for next year.
‘Well done to everyone involved in the show and making it happen, GREAT JOB everyone. It was only my second time as a visitor and I can say the experience was superb, the 'feel' was all there.
Wonderful to meet up with some old friends and make some new ones. You were all my favorites ;)’.
‘My 1st show and definitely not my last, possibly as an exhibitor next year, either as a solo effort or as part of the Southcoast Bake Off crew if I can browbeat them into it. Great work by everyone involved, so a big thankyou for all your effort. I managed to get round most rooms but found my Nirvana in Room 210 with Norbert & Gabriels system, especially when the Mastersound ref 845 was in play with Norberts prototype speaker. This saw me take several extended visits, where they were happy for me to connect my phone and play a number of tracks via Spotify. See you all next year, hopefully I can save up enough to cover my bar bill as I get a feeling it's going to be quite high’.
‘This was a fabulous show, a real variety of sounds and system philosophies to ponder and be amazed by. And of course being able to chat with the exhibitors about the system background. This is a great event that we can be proud of. So well done to everyone who made the considerable effort to display their beloved wares and of course to organise the event. Great job!’
‘Well 3rd year on the trot as a visitor & once again an absolute treat. Highlights for me , chatted to quite a few more people this year & it was great to to put some faces to the handles on here. Mr Shipbroker & Robin's room sounded fabulous & I have to take my hat off to the young man who made such a good job of those open baffles must have Cojones the size of Cumbria to take on that job !! Loads of great sounds coming from many peoples rooms & as usual it shows you that there's always ``more than one way to skin a cat`` so to speak. I also thought that the balance between retailers & exhibitors was fine & in no way detracted from the Wam Ethos , I wonder what they thought of it all ? Head scratching moments were: a.) How the hell are those Boenicke W8s doing that? b) Can I sell a Child/Kidney to fund a pair of Boenicke W8s & c.) Is that system that looks like Franken Tandy's Monster really playing this music ?. Massive thanks to Maverick for the lift home & a special shout out to Bazzer who donated the ITunes vouchers I won in the Raffle, roll on next year, can't wait!!’
