The Wedding Present are one of those bands that I seem to be intertwined with having seen them many times over a long period of time. The first time I remember seeing them was in Leeds in about 1994 at the Town and Country Club and not that long after they had released their single a month for a year (this was big news at the time) and one aspect that can always be said about the Weddos is that they have been consistent live, regardless of the line up, over the years. I have so many great memories of them playing from the first reunion tour, to the Cinerama days and the dual stage all-dayers they used to host at the Sheffield Leadmill, to walking past a bar in Atlanta and seeing them advertised as playing the following evening playing the Bizarro album in full and watching them in an entirely different cultural setting. So, when it was announced (on the Wednesday) that they were going to be playing in the very small The Lantern Venue in Halifax on the Sunday night for the upcoming Tommy tour I was keen to get tickets.

The Totaldac d1-driver is an analogue driver. It is usually connected to the output of the DAC. Vincent Brient of French brand Totaldac told us more. “It is an answer to the endless question “is it better with or without preamp?”The strength of preamps is there active stage more than their volume control. The active stage helps driving the power amp. Traditional preamps have been designed when people had several analogue sources: LP, cassette, FM tuner, CD player… Some of us still use LP today and still need a traditional preamp”. More »
