:: UNPLUGGED 2007
The very 1st private Audiofreaks exhibition is behind us. And what a good weekend it was! Our sincere gratitude goes to almost 500 visitors we have attempted to count - without you it would have all been a failure and disappointment! Also, big Thank You to those of our supplying manufacturers who had the time and good will to spend those few days with us and give support when it was needed most - to Franc Kuzma (of Kuzma Ltd who has not missed one single September show in London with us since 1987!!), Lew Johnson (of conrad-johnson design), Jim Richards (of Magnum Dynalab), Kevin Halverson (of Muse Electronics) and Luis Fernandes (of finite elemente). Quiet and concentrated help from usual close friends and family did not fail to be of huge influence once again. Last, but not least, we were pleasantly surprised by the level of professional care and support the Conference & Banqueting personnel of the Renaissance London Heathrow Hotel showed during our first 'single-handed' presence under their roof.
Let us hope that Audiofreaks unplugged 2008 will be an even more interesting and gratifying event not just for us, but, perhaps, some others who we hope to see in along the same corridor of the Renaissance Heathrow Hotel. Serious and real high-end audio is, after all, here to stay and Audiofreaks unplugged 2007 was just another reflection of that reality.
