I travelled to the Bristol Hifi Show 2019 from the new Blues Audio HQ in Portreath near Redruth on the Can Am trike, and arrived on the Saturday just after lunch.

I have been to many HiFi shows, this one was busy which was a good sign and all the rooms were taken with dealers and manufacturers.

Mostly British audio was on display with some European influence.

Avid Audio are a Cambridge based manufacturer who started out making some beautiful turntables and then expanded to amplifiers and then speakers.

This set up used a basic easy use turntable with the smallest Avid speakers that looked well made and retail at £17k

The sounded really punchy and a good musical reproduction was produced. the fine detail  and nuances weren’t  present, but the sound was very good.
