I was able to hit most of the rooms I wanted to get to before leaving the show later today. I enjoyed sledding some time in the Salk room. Everyone was nice and eager to talk and answer questions. I was really looking forward to hearing the SongTowers, which better than I had expected, running off a very nice AVA 30 watt tube amp. I also really enjoyed the Emerald Physics room. It was some of the best sound of what I heard at the show.Finally, I really enjoyed the Zu Soul Superfly and the Omen. Enjoyed seeing Ron Williams, who I met last year at a Zu Party I hosted. I planned on buying the Omens before the show figuring I had 60 days to to try them out. I spent a lot of time with them in the Peachtree room and they too were better than I expected. So much so that I bought the black show demo. When I found out about the offer, I was also considering the Soul Superfly, which I enjoyed as well. Anyone who wants a nice budget system, get a Peachtree Nova and a pair of Omens.Some of the best music I heard was a mono version Ben Webster with the Miyajima mono cart on the OMA Anatase turntable in the Rogue room. I forget the speakers that were in the room.I almost forgot. The Selah Monitors I heard were excellent. I am not sure which model or the electronics but they just disappeared in the room and that was left was the music.
I only heard the cheaper song towers, maybe I will get a chance to hear the bigger ones. What is the special on the Super Fly's? Did they sell the demo Omen's for less than $1k? Also, I think a good budget combo would be the Peachtree Musicbox and the Omens..... just my opinion
Drinking at 5000 feet is quite an experience my dendrites won't forget - ouch
Sounds like it was a good show again this year, sorry I missed it, did you run into Wayner ?
Two conspicuous absentee misses for me was Mike Galusha, and Paul 'Occam' Kaplan, (and Scott F. if he was there and I didn't know it) both known for many years here, will have to be remedied in future years
Funny dealer quote... "The retail is x, the show special is y, and since you live near by, just drive a truck over and I'll give you a really good price", talking about a pair of speakers I liked
...and the speaker is?
Any chance someone could post pics of Pez, Tyson and Laura? I have been taking allot of pictures myself, and will post later in the week (fingers crossed). Also, is Laura the one with the broken camera?
Anybody get a chance to sit with the Zu Omens and have any thoughts??
