Audiocounsel are based in the brilliantly named Diggle in Manchester and brought along a whole lot of AudioNote UK gear for visitors pleasure. They had two rooms and in the first had the TT2 Deluxe turntable sporting a Arm3 and IQ3 cartridge into an OTO Signature amp with the built in phonostage.

Digital source was a 1.1 Signature DAC been fed a signal by the CDT 1 CD player with AN-J LX loudspeakers moving the air. I thoroughly enjoyed this room and enjoyed the choice of music playing when we visited.

In a smaller and darker room Audiocounsel had another AudioNote UK system playing which personally I didn’t enjoy as much as the former, though others in attendance did say they preferred the second room proving there’s a lot of taste involved in this hobby.
