Are you coming to say hello at the North West Audio Show? Only 2 months to go!! We'll have a new budget integrated, a smaller version of our Cube speaker, and at least one case in a new colour!!!

Lots of driving for me in the past couple of days. On Thursday it was Durham to the Wiltshire countryside to drop off some kit to David Price, then over to Kings Cliffe to bring Mark some supplies from the Durham stockroom, and enjoy a night at Mark's local. Excellent food, real ale, and the best of company.

Next day, Mark suggested that "'as you now have an empty car, you should take home the old KEF 104.2 speakers that I picked up for a couple of hundred quid". Despite my doubts, I let Mark plug them in for a listen, and I have to admit that I was quite surprised...they are even worse than I thought they could be! If it is possible to engineer the death of music, these are a strong candidate for the job. Nice cabinetry, though. Perhaps Mark can make a wine rack out of them? We then put Mark's original Cube 1s on and the music returned, big style.

Back to Durham on Friday afternoon. Never a great time to travel. What should have been 3 hours turned into 4hrs plus. At least I wasn't weighed down with KEFs.

Some docs kindly sent to us by HFS member 'orangefixie'..."Copies sent by RD after I enquired about Black Box kits after reading the original article in Hi-Fi News." Thought to be circa 1996.
