Good Listening All, hope to see you there
I have always enjoyed going to THE Show (Newport Beach, June 3-5). For me, the best part is discovering new music that I can listen to at home on my audio system. It is fun to visit the many rooms and listen. Yes, some rooms sound great and others not so great. If you have any questions, this is a great place to listen and to get some answers.
Everyone is very friendly, helpful and it is a great place to meet new people and see the new equipment. The live concerts are great for listening to the real thing. It is amazing the prices I see on some of the equipment.
It is a fun weekend. THE Show in Newport Beach is highly recommended.
We'll be there - we being Linear Tube Audio, probably better known, if at all, as "those guys making the less expensive Berning ZOTL amps". In room 208 we'll have our 40 watt amp and our MicroZOTL2.0 as a preamp, joined by Vapor Audio speakers and some other guys. Downstairs in the Marketplace we'll have a booth with our MicroZOTL2.0 playing headphone amp. We're also bringing a ZOTL10 in case anyone wants to listen to that. Though we had a pre-production ZOTL40 at RMAF last year, this will be the real debut of the new ZOTL power amps.
I suggest you visit On a Higher Note (distributor of high-end audio components ) located in the Pelican Hill Room. Philip O’Hanlon’s demo using Vivid Speakers, Luxman and Merging Technologies are outstanding. He usually uses LP's and switches to other inputs as needed. His descriptions of the music are terrific.
For me, the best part, is that he publishes his demo playlists so that they can be added to your Tidal account. One playlist example is named “Box of Fun”, and it is terrific. See:
Please see the On A Higher Note web site for other playlists. The On a Higher Note Room is a must listen and is highly recommended.
I hope anyone even remotely thinking of going (even for two hours) do so. It truly is a celebration of technology, artistry, personalities, and music.
The Hotel Irvine is wonderful and easy to get to.
The hotel staff are friendly and helpful
The food trucks are fast, good, and reasonably priced..
Last year I really enjoyed the Synergistic Research Demonstration room on the first floor and many other exhibitor rooms. And lastly there is the fun of meeting friends, famous designers, musicians, and industry writers.
I'm gonna go with a buddy. I was hoping Herron Audio was gonna be there but not this time. I am looking forward to a more thorough checking out of Ocean Ways speakers. These left me pretty blown away the last time I went albeit with a quick listen. Other than that just gonna cruz O.pen in the old shirt pocket and enjoy some music live and recorded played on world class gear. 15$ and real tastyfood(ie) trucks outside for the post show sustenance ya can't go wrong. These youngins today think they are so hip. I'll take this over anywhateverfest with drunk aholes trying to hit on my wife, pick a fight, and general pushing and shoving, any day. Walk away with some nice vinyl and call it a day.
