First time attending for me. I went on Saturday and hit rooms I had mapped out earlier. Some really quick observations:
Kyomi Audio - showing MBLs and easily the best set up I heard while there. I will be speaking to George further about the speakers and Ideon DACs.
Magico - about what I expected. Very detailed and revealing, but dry and not my cup of tea.
Vinnie Rossi/Rockport - I was quite interested in hearing this setup but came away disappointed. It must have been the room because I’ve heard Rockports before and loved them. I’ve had my eye on the Brama gear from Vinnie Rossi (beautiful aesthetics and interesting tech) but this was a really disappointing showing for me.
T+A - I own some of their gear and was hoping to chat w/ the people there, but the room was crowded with little opportunity to interact with them - at least while I was visiting. Sound was hard to judge but was better than the Magico and Rockport previously noted.
GTT - showing Vivid speakers and Audionet electronics. This room sounded pretty good, but I didn’t come away thinking it sounded great like MBL. Regardless, I could never live with the speakers.
What did others think?
