Wow! Thanks for the photos!
That green platter on the new McIntosh turntable looks pretty cool, but what's that big mama 'table on page 30 (Large200.jpg)? Also love that heaping stack of Pass amps and the flaming Wadia dac(?).
The icing on the cake though is the YG Acoustics speakers. Finally. I was wondering when a speaker would come along and just put an end to all of the endless debates.
THE BEST LOUDSPEAKER ON EARTH. PERIOD.
Now that there's a speaker you can hang your hat on fella!
Hey guys - I was too busy to get back to this board to answer questions. So, here it goes.
The big table on page 30 is from TransRotor. Can't remember the model, but it was an impressive piece of equipment.
The flaming Wadia unit is not a DAC, it is the first official piece of gear that will take a digital signal from an iPod and output it to any DAC you want. For only $349 the iTransport is a steal. They had it playing on a great system and the sound was superb.
That McIntosh turntable and whole system was my favorite sounding system of the whole show. That room was so musical I went back three days in a row and stopped working just to relax and listen to vinyl. James Taylor's Sweet baby James re-master on Warner vinyl was absolutely amazing. I talked to Dick McCarthy from Richard Gray's Power Company in that room for quite a while and we both thought the sound was great.
By the way, I just posted a link to my second gallery and it should be up here after moderator OK in 4 to 8 hours.
CES & T.H.E. Show are quite an experience for high end audio lovers. With only a couple local dealers (if you're lucky) in many areas you don't get to hear much of the equipment out there. It was weird thinking to myself that I wouldn't want some of the systems on display because they didn't sound as good as this room or that room. In reality almost all the equipment there sounded stellar.
