The Bristol Sound & Vision Show (24th – 26th February) was a tremendous success for Neat Acoustics. Using Naim electronics, a James Audio Mark 6 mains conditioner and ‘Decorative Art Services’ room tuning devices, the tiny Motive 2 loudspeakers made a fantastic sound, producing fine resolution and delivering a surprisingly prodigous bass performance.
The Decorative Art Services panels were extremely effective in taming the room’s negative characteristics. These are professional acoustic room-tuning panels with attractive outer canvas skins, which can be chosen from a comprehensive gallery on their website: www.decorative-art-services.co.uk
On Sunday morning, to our immense surprise and pleasure, we were awarded the BFA award for the best two channel demonstration at the show – for the second year running. This award is based on several factors as well as sound; the appearance and atmosphere of the room; how informative the graphics and promotional material are; the quality of the music and the volume level at which it is played. The Neat room was also a Katie Melua-free zone, which probably helped!
