The WAM hifi show is a show like no other.
There are a couple of commercial rooms, but beyond that there are 40+ rooms of systems put together by enthusiasts purely for your listening pleasure - no selling! Each room will have a system brought along to the hotel by a HifiWigwam member, set up for the weekend, playing whatever music they fancy (or you request!) to let you hear real systems put together with love and care for the enjoyment of music.
It's unique amongst hifi shows and not to be missed.
This year its at a new venue, just outside the railway station at Stoke on Trent on Sunday 2nd October.
More information at the show website, tickets are only £10
AudiophileMusings will be exhibiting in Room 221 - do come along and choose a track from our playlist.

Last year's show at the De Vere Staverton Estate in Northamptonshire was very well supported by manufacturers and dealers. Given the circumstances visitor attendance was very good. The venue's got a good selection of rooms and will be well worth a visit in 2022.

Well here we go again. Small room, small speakers, simple system, great sounds. This seems to be a pattern at hifi shows now. Hegel and Amphion team up and go for something that's realistic, straightforward, compact and just right for the size of the room (matching equipment to the room works - exhibitors please note!). The little £1200 Amphion Argon 1, fed by a Rega RP8 turntable through the Hegel V10 phono and integrated amp / streamer (not sure if 120 or the 190 version) connected via Audiomica cables was effortlessly musical - no harshness, no significant boominess in the room, great subtlety to vocals, nicely balanced imaging and bass depth that belie the size of the little white standmounts.
Compact, sensibly priced, domestically easy on the eye and very musical. Superb.
