Classic Album Sundays at the National Audio Show ’13

Classic Album Sundays will host The Copse Room at the National Audio Show ’13.

We will feature an array of listening sessions of albums by artists Dusty Springfield, Love, David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, The Beach Boys and The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The albums will be presented by CAS founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy and will be replayed uninterrupted on vinyl on an exquisite hi-fi provided by Sonata Hi-Fi and Renaissance Audio.

We will also feature a Direct to Vinyl Mastering Presentation from Gearbox Records, and a turntable set-up demonstration by Rob Wilson from Sonata Hi-Fi. On top of this, we invite attendees to bring along a couple old records to clean on our VPI Record Cleaning Machine and some records to trade at our Vinyl Swap Shop (a great way to get rid of some of those multiple copies!).

We will also feature an exhibition of signed album cover prints from St. Paul’s Gallery which will be available for purchase on site. We look forward to seeing you.
