Now in just its second year The Indulgence Show, Hammersmith, London took place last weekend and what a great show it was. The team from Indulgence have improved massively on the first year with better signposting and more exhibitors.
For me personally the show felt buzzy but not over busy. One of my pet hates with some shows is that visitors get to rooms, find most of the seats are taken and then stand in the doorway blocking everyone else’s access…quite often when there are still seats available. The Indulgence Show, whilst still having a decent flow of traffic through most rooms, allowed visitors to get into the rooms and have a good listen. This is a good thing in my book and, having spoken to a number of people about this since the show, massively busy shows can be off putting for some. My one gripe about the venue is that is is oddly laid out and can get a little confusing for first time visitors, but you do soon get the hang of where things are.

The Show took place Friday, Saturday and Sunday but given the vagaries of transport connections from France we arrived late on the Friday evening, grabbed a drink and went out to dinner with Dan George of Dan George Communications and the good people from Chord Electronics…thanks guys. Saturday morning we grabbed a quick breakfast, set up our cameras etc and off we went to explore a few rooms before getting ready for our little event in the Cognac Suite where we had a live DJ (Adam Billingham AKA Fray Bentos) playing through a Chord Electronics amp, chord cables and a pair of Ophidian P2 loudspeakers.

Anyway, enough of my waffle, read the report part 1 including 3 Square Audio, Wire On Wire, Ophidian and Karma AV. 

First up was the 3 Square Audio and Wire On Wire room. 3 Square were playing their Translator floorstanders when we went in the room but also had on show their Liberator standmounts plus their equipment racks, plinths and headphone stands.
Wire On Wire make tuneable speaker and interconnect cables. We’ve reviewed their Experience 680 interconnect but since then they launched their Experience 680 speaker cable and at The Indulgence Show launched their new 880 interconnect. We’ll be uploading a video of Chris from Wire On Wire explaining the concept in the coming days.
