I thought it was one of the better sounding rooms. In my top ten as well. To me the knockout rooms were the big tube based systems like vandersteen/Tenor, VTL, and ARC/Magnepan (arc SS that is). I think that 'top ten' is a better number to have. Gordon Rankin had great sound from little tiny SET amps in his room, but it was vastly different than the powerhouse monster sized sound in Wisdom Audio's room.
The CES system is similar to what I have at home. The exception being that I have the top shelf v-1x, a bat tube preamp, the standard eidolons, and a full bore audiomod scd-1. I greatly prefer my own setup to what I heard at las vegas. Most people who have heard my system say the Ayre is my best sounding amp with the avalons. It has a warm hearted, musical quality that goes well with the avalons. It's also the only amp I own with enough power.
I think the v-1x is a much better amplifier for the eidolons than the v5. More liquid sounding with tremendous power. The V5 was good, but it didn't have the transparency or sense of weight that I hear at home. The v5/eidolon diamond combo was brighter but with less weight. The v1's sense of strength is one of it's most endearing qualities.
