i was there yesterday - nice show; nice to go on a friday and be able to get vendors to play your software, as it's not very crowded.  (disappointed that some vendors have only music servers, so can't play cd's or vinyl...)

i won't make it today, but looking forward to going tomorrow.

Hi Doug,

We feel your pain.  Somewhat.

Perhaps they are showcasing their Dacs or some other digital gears?!?

dacs are great!  just have a cd transport plugged into them, is that too much to ask?   :D

i was in the volti room yesterday, it was a room i really liked, and while i couldn't play vinyl there, i enjoyed more than a few cuts of my redbook software in that room.  it's really nice to be able to hear music you're familiar with at an audio show.  and, this is the second time i've been impressed with the sound of a volti speaker being able to sound nice in an extremely sub-optimal room.  tho i wasn't completely blown away like i was listening to the grand vittoria's w/matching powered sub in a similarly sub-optimal room set-up a few years back.  i'd love to here the vittoria's and these, in a better environment.  one of the few expensive speakers i've heard that would actually be worth the investment of my own funds, imo.  purchased used, of course!   :rofl:

another great sound, imo.  i met jacob george, rethm's owner/designer, and what a delightful gentleman!  i was disappointed that this was one of the rooms that was server-only, so i could not try cuts i was familiar with.  i also ran into jacob in the vr schweikert room, where i was able to get them to play my vinyl copy of 'buena vista social club'; jacob said this was one album he also had and liked, so when i go back to the show tomorrow, i am going to stop by the rethm room again, and see if that is loaded onto their server.

I have to admit that I had fun hanging out with my two-best buddies...JBTrio and Topround.   I am sure everyone would agree that music and good spirits brings everyone together as a common ground.  Special thanks to Pete (Triodewire) playing great tunes and for the cryoed beer! 


That was Topround and JBtrio checking out the Garrard with Philco cart.
