Well as it is only a few days away now to our Boys Toys Day II Event I thought I had better write a quick blog with all the latest information, most importantly the weather is looking good, dry and around 70 degrees so perfect really, fingers crossed that doesn’t change.
So Just to recap, this Saturday, July 22nd, we are holding our 2nd HiFi and Car event, this year in collaboration with dCS, Wilson Audio, Absolute Sounds and Lotus Silverstone. Just as 2 years ago we will meet at HiFi Lounge from 9am onwards for a BBQ breakfast of sausage and bacon, my mouth is already watering :-) then around 11.30am we will head up to dCS to hear a very special HiFi System. dCS use Wilson Alexx Speakers in their demo room and having just come back from Utah for Wilson Audio Training where they use dCS I really recommend you don’t miss this as I am already trying to figure out how I can afford of Wilson Alexx’s for home, so to sum up if you have a car that is your pride and joy or you want to hear one of the world’s ultimate HiFi’s then please feel free to come along, if you are more interested in the HiFi system then please feel free to meet us at dCS from around Midday, please find a link to more information on the day below -
Finally Found What I’ve Been Looking For!
For those who didn’t already know, In the spirit of our Boys Toys Day I finally managed to find a car that I have been looking a long time for as basically good examples don’t come up very often, especially in white, but 3 weeks ago I took delivery of this beautiful 1985 Lotus Esprit Turbo, straight out of ‘For Your Eyes Only’ It has been totally restored and is as if it has been transported through time direct from 1985, it really is a stunner.
But, and it is a big but, I took it out for it’s first drive last week and after around 3 miles the clutch failed so at the moment it is in the garage, anyway I am hopeful to have it fixed in time for BTD II but if not then I guess I’ll have to polish the van :-(
New dCS Demo Room
Here is a sneak peak of the new demo room at dCS, as you can see we will only be able to fit a few poeple in at a time but once everyone has had a listen then anyone who would like an extended listen will be able to go back for another session, again I can’t stress enough how good this will be as after a few days of listening to the dCS Vivaldi into Dan D’agostino amps into Wilson Speakers on my trip to Utah last week I am totally sold, definitely not to be missed if you love music.
A Late Addition - Alnwick Gin
So to be fair it probably isn’t the most appropriate match for a car event but through the summer is there really a better drink than a Gin and Tonic? Personally I don’t think you can beat it so at dCS Alnwick Gin will be on hand with samples for taste testing with bottles for sale on the day, just don’t get too carried away otherwise we may have to sleep in dCS’s demo room over night :-)
Matthew from Lotus Silverstone will be on hand to to talk all things Lotus and all being well will be bringing along this stunning Evora 410 Sport, being that we have quite a few Lotus’s coming along I am sure this will be of interest to quite a few.
Parking at HiFi Lounge
I just wanted to say that if you are bringing your Pride and joy to the event then if these cars can be parked in front of HiFi Lounge as last time and in the car park that would be great, obviously you are more than welcome to come along in a normal car but could you please park on the hard standing where the barns are, also I should mention, if you have a low car then instead of turning right towards where the sign says ‘Granary Building’s’ you can go straight on to avoid the cattle grids.
Please find the address’s below for HiFi Lounge and dCS Audio -
