Default Our visit to Colin (aka 'Tremayne') and Chris, August '17

Already a lot of years ago, we wanted to meet, but there was always something that came in the way.
Not this time!
We spent a lovely couple of days, with sight-seeing, good food and drinks, and a lot of music.

Colin and his wife, Chris live in the north of England.




You could say they are the perfect hosts.
We felt very welcome.

Nice overview of the city from the castle.










Me with our hosts.

What brought us to Washington in the first place (the original Washington, we read on a sign board entering the town ), was the music and AA!

This is Colin's system:




The heart of the system: The Devialet Pro 1000 twins, a Marantz Blu-ray player, and a Cable TV decoder.

If I recall well, Colin made these himself:








They complement his rack to isolate the gear.




A Shunyata Hydra delivers the clean juice.

Colin, you'll have to help me with the name of the sturdy rack.

The Devialets are tiny shiny things.

It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Bart and Meta to the North East of England, at long last.
Hopefully you will visit us again, but for a longer stay next time.
Bart, the rack is a Quadraspire X-Ref.
