You don’t have to bring anything Steve if it isn’t convenient.

The space is located at the Portland Works (the birthplace of Stainless Steel cutlery) Sheffield S2 4SJ.

Image

https://www.portlandworks.co.uk/roomhire/

The room is 17M long x 5,5M wide and a ceiling height of 3.45 M. with double sockets located every 4.1.M down the long walls.

The room was rewired to it's own consumer unit and the works has it's own substation.

The floor is of suspended timber construction with joists 280 x 70 mm. 30mm thick pine floorboards have been overboarded with 18 mm thick chipboard.

The industrial floor construction and high ceiling gives the room a very neutral acoustic balance.

For me I think November may be a bit too far off - I don’t see an issue with the 13th or 20th of Oct though.

I’ll have a word with Si and see if he can do us a Google Docs spreadsheet that people can acccess.

Link to spreadsheet is here.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

You can add a line for yourself to the live doc or I can fill it in for you if you pm me.

If we end up being oversubscribed we may have to make restrictions on numbers and gear. Hopefully not though.

The idea is a to get a great spread of quality gear, classic, diy and bought stuff. Ideally variants in each field, valves, solidstate, cd, dac and file source, vinyl, tape, panel and planar speakers, subs, standmounts, compacts, multiway, high sensitivity, single driver, all the options.

We'll work on a format for showing once we have an attendee list and date chosen.

I'll lock lines once they are approved by each attendee.
