Warning..... Do not link this on your smart phone. (Unless you use Sprint.) Your data will be depleted. Lots of pics.
Beer cooler under the armrest?
Man, I had headphone imaging sitting back in the chair with the little PSB speakers. The center image was just above the top of my head.
See ya. Dave
Do you recall the make of the two-way monitors finished in zebrawood?
Thanks for sharing!
Really outstanding images from the show. I agree with another poster that I felt like I was there. Well done and thanks for posting. Never having attended a show like this, I am simply amazed at the sheer amout of really beautiful audio equipment present.
I recently visited San Antonio and went to the largest audio store there. It was huge and with 8-9 rooms full of HT equipment. They had one room with a rack of McIntosh equipment, a Rega turntable and a set of B&W speakers. That's all I've seen in a store since 1990 or so.
There's nothing to look at here in Indianapolis, either.
Thanks so much Todd. If you are not a professional photographer, you should be!
I used a lowly Panasonic Lumix ZS19 travel zoom camera...... I did see a lot of high-end cameras at the show..... I'm sure once those photos are brought on line, my pics will look ordinary by comparison............ But I'll enjoy the accolades for now....... [-;
What enabled the ZS19 to take decent photos is its superlative image stabilization. Enabled shutter speeds as slow as 1/2 second without shake blur. Kept the aperture wide open, and the ISO as low as possible. (I used a Canon S95 last year, and while the camera took had less noise at higher ISOs, the image stabilization wasn't nearly as good, so I couldn't slow down the shutter like with the ZS19.)
gear that I could actually afford. Nice eye candy. So the CD is that good afterall, that it could inspire so much playback equipment.
The Newport show is certainly a LOT bigger than our C.A.S. up here in the north. Looking forward to it anyway Aug 3rd-5th.
So, your expectations would be out-of-whack.....
It is not a mid-fi show. They do not have mid-end gear there. But from his pics, - I did see a fair amount of low priced, high-end equipment.
Manufacturers are interested in showing off their BEST, - not their trickle down.
Why you attend, is to see their best. If you like that, there is a good chance that you will like their "take" on good sound, and perhaps they will make a product that you can afford. And, you also go to garner experiences to nail down what you like, and what you don't. What applications and combinations of equipment and accessories fit your tastes, room, and world view.

Great work, thanks
Quite impressive lineup! If you could own any of the systems...what would be your pick?

That system with the Lumenwhite speakers and Ayon gear was one of my favorities at the show. I believe they are like $38,000 or some such unreachable (to me) price.
Very nice pictures. Thanks.
See ya. Dave
I never saw so much gloss white coming out at one time in one place. Has this been a trend??? I was half expecting McIntosh to have gone with white after seeing it all over. I don't think it will help with WAF myself but I guess they (the manufacturers) know something I don't.
Lot's of really big stuff also..
That was like looking at someones vacation pics, except this time I cared. Thanks for the time you put into this.It must suck for a vendor trying to present his product on some of those hotel carpets, I got a little dizzy at some of those patterns.
These are the best pictures of a show I've seen because you took pictures of things beyond the equipment itself. Makes me feel like I've been there. Thank you!
Great photos Todd, thanks. I felt as if I was there!
Was MSB demoing their new DAC IV's?
If so, how did they sound?
