2. Flash drive from now on. It seems like this was the cross over year and most every one has gone to computer only as a source.
Interesting.................I saw lots of great analog front ends.
Me too. Lots of analog front ends on every floor in the show. I brought my own vinyl (Neil Young Live at Massey Hall; The Decemberists The King Is Dead; Fleetwood Mac Rumours 45 RPM; The Beatles MoFi Abbey Road; and She and Him Volume II). With a couple of exceptions I focused on rooms with TT and could not get to all the rooms I wanted to hear. If anything, I saw fewer rooms with CD players and some rooms had both a TT and a computer.Laura
Again thanks for the photos. I'm very surprised the Analysis room did not get more comments. Same for Soundfield speakers room. charlesSMA
Yes there were a lot of TT, my comment was more about the few rooms that couldn't play the CD's I brought. I think we're starting to see the death of CD in high end now, and from now on more vinyl or computer front ends.
Too bad, Pez and I came by on both Friday and on Sunday since the SA1's were one of the main speakers I wanted to hear this year.
Go figure . Such is my luck. No more Fed Ex! You'll have to organize one of those Carolina GTG's one weekend, hopefully in South Carolina cheers,AJ
These were interesting. When we came in it was the little guys on the outside (next to the wall) that were playing. It had a very nice full sound which too me, was surprising considering the size and placement. I did ask the gentleman running the system if they were meant to be loaded on the wall like that due to their construction and he said "no they work anywhere in the room". Shrug.When I did get tot he sweet spot, it was very hard to actually find the sweet spot. The image was lost. In fact due to the shortness of the speaker I felt like I had to duck down to get the best sound. I think these speakers might work, they just need some help in room treatments and placement and the imaging might get ironed out.
Standub- Those Sonus Faber's LOOK too far apart to me and too close to side walls by a long shot. Shoulda just grouped seating tighter.
That was part of my point, fewer rooms with CD players. I'm not sure it's the death of CD in high end, but the CD is certainly taking a back seat to computer audio. Last year we did a comparison in Lou Hinkley's Daedalus room between a CD on the AMR 77 CD player (a great CD player) and 24/96 hi rez from his Mac Mini and the computer sounded better.
