2004 CES "blur" of a show... Part 1 of many to come!
The Thiel room was big and well... sounded like Thiel, nice and big. Lots to see and hear as long as you liked silver.
The Thiel front end featuring Theta and BAT.
Ah.... the Chad Man, Mr. Kassem of Acoustic Sounds. Lots to buy!
FIM was displaying a new PLC that no doubt is quite interesting.
TheMusic.com displayed some really cool titles that were NOT typical of audiophile material. That is, Carol and I found much to buy! Part of Classic Records to boot!
The Ayre Acoustics room (along with Cardas and Avalon) sounded very nice. Big and dynamic with that Ayre sense of "smoothness."
Ah... analog via the Clear Audio Champion Level 2 table, with a Graham 2.2 arm and Benz cartridge.
The new Ayre P-5x phono stage - $2350!
Mr. Ayre himself - Charles Hansen.
Kirk and Donna Bodinet of SOTA! Wonderful people and killer tables too!
Inside the VTL amps.
VTL and Wilson with a big and robust sound.
A SOTA table spinning music in the VTL room.
Jed Hacker and Michael Holton of Soundstring.
The Soundstring room sounded quite good with Herron Audio.
May Audio with Gradient speakers and Roksan electronics and sources. Nice sound that was not the bit least fatiguing.
Two gorgeous tables from Roksan!
