2004 CES "blur" of a show... Part 2 of many to come!
The Music Direst room had the new Mobile Fidelity OML-2 speakers with PS Audio electronics. Nice and clean, though a bit too lean! Did demonstrate the new Ground Zero from Granite Audio that eliminates hum and crap. Worked wonders at removing a ground loop in their system.
FAL Company Ltd. had some very unusual speakers using a combination of a Heil driver and their own air-motion transformer in a lager open baffle design. Sounded interesting...
Acoustic Partners using the Alons as well. Sounded good with Berendsen electronics.
The GTT room with Lamm and Kharma was tucked so far in the back, we thought we were at the airport. Sounded like a Lamm and Kharma systemfast, clean, and musical.
Magnum Dynalab with their tower of power.
Danger Will Robinson!
Stereovox and Peak Consulting sound big and powerful using Lamm amplification.
The deHavilland and Prana wire room sounded as musical as all get out! We found this one to be a place to take an extended listen when we had a spare moment. Oh, and the Alons again!!
The GM-70 amplifier with a Prana cabling running this way and that!
Oh, cool reel-to-reel in the deHavilland room with tapes too!
Joe Cohen, Bryan Gladstone, and Carol Clark in the deHavilland/Prana room. "No Bryan, I will not give you the system."
Tetra Live speaker ($6800) sounded very nice with CJ and Birdland Audio electronics.
Birdland's new preamplifier with glow in the dark lightinglooked very beautiful too.
The QS and D room with Spendor and Talk electronics sounded very British with a rather stiff upper lip.
A gaggle of NAIM in the QS and D room.
