The Best of the Bristol Show 2020

Maybe it’s because I didn’t get there last year (for the first time since 1988) but the Bristol Show seemed more hectic than ever this time around. It may be a bit like groundhog day for the industry veterans but local enthusiasts have lost none of their enthusiasm.

Munich High End 19, the Good Stuff!!

There are so many products of all shapes and sizes that you quickly get snow blind and only see the most extreme examples. It is not a place to try and assess a manufacturer’s ability to build an entertaining audio system unless your own listening space is made of glass and full…
