We had an excellent show pairing with Alta Audio using their amazing flagship Titanium Hestia loudspeakers. http://alta-audio.com/collection/
We powered the Hestias with our brand new DVA 4/2 amplifier running in the four channel mode, with each speaker bi-amplified from two of the four channels. http://avahifi.com/products/power-amplifiers/dva-premium-amplifiers/dva-4-2-amplifier
We also had the use of complete AntiCable interconnects, power cords, and speaker cables. http://anticables.com/
in addition, we had the use of a top of the line VPI turntable http://www.vpiindustries.com/avenger-reference
and a Soundsmith Hyperion phono cartridge. https://www.sound-smith.com/index.php
This combination gave us the best sound we have ever had at a trade show. Our room was completely full most of the time (in spite of reports of poor attendance) and people visiting our room stayed and listened, most not just poking their heads in the door.
One of our sources was records of course, and we were really pleased how well our Vision Q phono preamp performed with state of the art source material. http://avahifi.com/products/for-vinyl-lovers/vision-riaa-phono-preamplifier
The phono section was built into our brand new Fet Valve CFR remote control preamplifier, never seen before in public.
We also played computer stored music on my Mac from Redbook to PCM 192/24 and DSD 64 and DSD 128 through our new DAC MK FIVE with also excellent musicality. http://avahifi.com/products/d-to-a-converters
Some listeners commented that our room was one of the two best they had heard at the show, and the other had electronics costing 20 times as much as our AVA components.
Dean Barnell and I made the 1860 mile round trip from Woodbury, MN in my old Audi Avant S6 with no issues at an average speed of 65 MPH and 20 MPG total packing all our equipment back and forth.
Mary Staples, Larry Jenkins, and Mithat Konar, our EE, got to fly back and forth.
We left Denver thinking we had made a really good presentation. No glitches, no equipment failures, just a nice time with great support from Mike Levy of Alta. Now just waiting to hear from some of our room visitors, although sales of AVA equipment started even before the end of the show.
