I only went on Sunday. The show was definitely winding down. I was a bit disappointed with the sound in most rooms. Some systems were set up overly bright, and many had one note boomy bass. Of course you have to expect that in a show. People bring stuff to the show to sell, not entertain. What was unusual were the number of rooms with the sound turned off. That's a mistake.I met James Romyn, Klaus, and missed Duke. I also ran into a few old friends. I wonder how many ACers passed each other in the halls. We're buddies online. I wish we'd find a way to attach faces to the posts. Looking at a couple of pics, I think JLM wandered by a couple of times.I went through most rooms, and have a few favorites to share. I thought Sanders Sound was the best of show. Great electronics, ESL panels, and a well designed TL for bass. I wish I could afford them. Second place to Legacy. They always are a top choice at any show.Third Odyssey. I loved Klaus' system and can see why his amps have such a following.Fourth Audio Kinesis. The 46s are a nice design. The Atmasphere OTLs hurt the sound a bit. They needed better amps.Zu was my fifth choice. Not the most accurate but loads of slam & fun.I also noted two small speakers:The Linkwitz LX Mini is very nice.Transparent One by Vanatoo would be a great desktop or dorm room speaker.More when I get back home.steve
How did you find the tweeter? Felt a touch hot to me, but that could have been at least somewhat due to what they were playing when I was in the room.
Three of us can sit side by side in a room and hear different things. Just goes to show that what I like means nothing.
And Lastly ZU Company They didn't produce remarkable sound in their room , but among 99% of car dealers pretending to be an audio salesmen this bunch of young guys really showed what this hobby is for. Two decent cheap turntables and a DJ playing selection of music all day long . If I had a spare day and was not an audio hardware nut I would park right there and smuggle a bottle with fish and chips . And , I would buy anything from them to keep THAT kind of company on the market.
The "DJ" is usually Sean the owner.
