If you get out to any of the festivals this year, keep an eye out for Whapweasel. They usually do the dance tents, and playa really nice mix of folk, with ska, reggae, Eastern European, and jazz/klezmer influences all thrown in.

As you don't like Tannoys, (Heathen! ), then I'll second the MC4s, very good on accoustic music, they'll even cope with Spillane's over indulgenent reverb.

Hi Pinkmouse

I will keep an eye out for Whapweasel, always on the look out for something new. I played in a folk rock band a few years ago, we did a couple of festivals ourselves, children and a mortgage put a stop to all of that though! such is life. Whats your genre? What kind of set up do you have?

As you don't like Tannoys, (Heathen! ), sorry . I think I will have a look on ebay to see if i can pick up some MC4's without burning a whole in my wallet.

Audiolab 8000A was my first real audiophile amp some years back, which I sold then but have recently scored another one on Ebay. I've used numerous hi-end amps since then so it will be good to see how far I may have progressed/digressed. Hope to play with Proac 2.5 DIY clones. Years ago I had success with Wharfedale E90s (WMTMW), Spendor Preludes and Kef 104 (old vintage). When I get the ebay Audiolab again I'll report back here in a week or so. I don't think it will be too dissappointing from what I remember of the 8000A - clean sounding but very deep bass, great imaging and spatial coherence, refined treble. Did not seem to do too well on 4 ohm load speakers like Duntech PCL25(?) so perhaps be careful there.

As I say , Vandersteen 1C will be perfect for 8000A. It is easy to drive , and sounds very musical , warm , powerfull with good space. I really enjoyed that combination.
