California Audio Show 2014

Just wondering what people's favorite rooms were. For me it was Margules Audio followed by Acoustic Zen.
The Loggie Audio room was fantastic! I also loved the Acoustic Zen room. I was pleasantly surprised how great some of the less expensive systems sounded. The live concert was a nice touch and the rocking AV room on the second floor reminded me just how fun this hobby is. Great show!
The big "finds" for me at reasonable prices were the Triangle Signature Deltas at $8K and the Spatial Hologram M1 at $4K.
I liked the large room with all of the headphone demos. Maybe that's because I'm in the market for new phones. I liked all of the Audeze models, the Fostex 900s, and the Stax 007 and 009 models. The driver units were impressive, particularly the big Woo Audio models. Even Oppo is putting out a headphone. I was glad I attended because I got a chance to see products I may never have seen in local hi-fi shops.
Drubin, what did you think of the bass performance of the M1's? I heard the M2's at Axpona. They were great except for the bass.
Good question, Dave. Because of the open baffle design, even the two 15" woofers might not put out the kind of bass one would hope for. Unfortunately, I didn't listen to anything with deep bass while I was there, but I also didn't feel that I was particularly missing anything. At $4K with an in-home trial offered, I may give them a go.
