"What a refreshingly honest blog about listening to music through hi-fi. So happy to see views based upon the enjoyment of music rather than so-called sound 'quality'." - Peter Comeau, Director of Acoustic Design at Mission / Wharfedale

CRANAGE HALL AUDIO SHOW JUNE 2014 - Purite North, Pure Sound, Project, Acoustic Energy

Yet another good sounding room here and one that makes it into my top 5 for the day.  A very reasonably priced Project turntable playing through Puresound amplification (pre centre middle shelf and valve power either side of the turntable) and into Acoustic Energy floorstanders.  Sensible looking cables and a nice looking rack.  I'm sure RJC Audio's HUSH... isolation platform was helping the turntable too.
The sound was detailed, musically flowing, not brash, not dull.
A feature that's always welcome at the Hifi Wigwam show is labels on the kit - this is what it is, this is what it costs.  Not exactly radical, but something that's bizarrely missing in most rooms at most commercial shows.  Purite North added "Now Playing" labels too.  So simple, so informative.
