This year at the September Show
(19th to 21st), Hi-Fi-Plus will be running ticketed demonstrations located in the Renaissance Hotel, just across
The road from he Park Inn. The tickets themselves will ONLY be available from our stand in the maim show, however, a limited number will be available for
subscribers to pre-book; just ring Jackie on 01425 461155, between 11:00am and
4.00pm and shell add your lame to the list. Reserved tickets will be limited to two per caller and must also be collected from our stand at the
show, before 11am each day.
We've introduced this measure because recently our demonstrations
have become so heavily attended that disappointed subscribers have been unable to get tickets. Hopefully this will ease the problem, as well as ensuring
that the demonstrations fulfill one of their primary objectives; giving readers
the chance to hear for themselves the differences and performance benefits we describe in he pages of the magazine. This serves the dual purpose of
allowing you to "calibrate" our descriptions and keeping us honest! After
all, who wants to stand in front of room full of people flying to demonstrate a
miraculous upgrade that no one can hear.
The demonstrations will be designed to show the importance of set up and ancillaries
to overall system performance — including several of the products reviewed in
this issue — lessons that apply to all systems irrespective
Each demo will last approximately 40 minutes. starting at
3:00pm on Friday, 12 noon on Saturday and 11:30am on Sunday. We won't he alone at
the Renaissance either, with Audiofreaks running their Unplugged.2008 event (more details on
page 8) and Hi-Fi News also in attendance, making the trip across the road well
worthwhile. We look forward to seeing you there.
