Here we can discuss our thoughts on the different rooms, gear etc.  

 

But first impression?

 

Thank Christ it’s finally back on -

…and the queue inside to get in is huuuuuuge!  I’d expect tomorrow (Sat. morning) to be worse.

I had severe stomach problems last night and finally fell asleep at 4am. Woke up this morning in no mood whatsoever to visit the grand show. Saturday and Sunday I work so I'm not a happy camper as some say. There would have been a lot I wanted to see (and hear). To everyone attending have a good time and please plenty of photos.

First room in and what a beast of an amp.  Very nice sound stage too -

I would like to know what the chassis/metal work contributes to the total cost of this amp as a ratio. Very nice.

Sat through the Krix HT demo - amazing what a $100k of audio system can achieve - I want one.

 

The room was doing no favours but the Klipsch heritage room still sounded sweet and got my toes tapping - maybe I’m just smitten with vintage style 😂❤️

Agree the gryphon leaves you feeling inadequate

Just had a quick listen to the new ps audio speakers - very impressive sound and i personally love the design - bass was incredible and I found imaging some of the best so far - amazing live sound with almost a horn like quality to them 9/10 👍👍👍☝️

also just ducked into jbl room - very smooth and I think one of the best treated rooms - making the speakers shine

Now this system actually got and and boogied.  Not exactly what I’d spend the money on (speakers $16,000).

When someone gets to the DEQX room, it would be appreciated if you could post whatever you learn about their new line, especially if there is a trade-up arrangement.

A very interesting demo, they’re using $150 bookshelves…

That must have been a very big dog that took a fancy to the RH banner support

Thanks for the images, keep 'em coming. Looks like a good show.


+1 ..I appreciate getting a sense of the show as it's wet, cold and dreary where I live, hence not fun. Would've liked to have gone to the show too, so it's almost like being there, except for no sound! Lol.

The speakers everyone loves, except {burp}…

 

A new streamer/disc spinner looks interesting.
