Sound System:

Three things were vital when it came to the chosen sound system: sound quality, endurance and ergonomics. The need for quality of sound is self-explanatory. Ditto, endurance. And given I would be using the equipment for 100 hours solid, the need for it to be of the utmost ergonomic design - and extremely easy/comfortable to use - was paramount. Anything unfamiliar or difficult to navigate - even if it was gifted to us - would be getting slung straight out of the window. You wouldn't try to walk across the Sahara wearing a pair of stilettos now, would you?

Essential components were turntables, mixer, CD players, amps and speakers - with enough styli to change the needle every eight hours, preferably. A good, clean monitor speaker was also essential.
