Audio Note SOOTTO power cords

By | February 14th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , , |

Audio Note SOOTTO power cords, power cables, mains cable, PC… whatever you want to call them.

You know when you start playing with $11K-ish power cords, things are going to start getting weird. A person is likely to have some expectations and demands going in to the process, with a few eye-rolls and ‘what has this world come to’ heart-felt commiserations by the spectators [by those that are not the 1%, and since 1%-ers sometimes feel left out and like to fit in with the 99%-ers, EVERYBODY complains about these kinds of prices].… Read the full article

The rest of Neli’s photos of CES 2018.

The cover photo is of costumed opera singers .. singing in the Venetian shops area [you know, the area that every audiophile has gotten lost in at one show or another – or if you are me, multiple shows :-)].

Another ELAC speaker room

CAT speakers on what looks like Theta electronics and a VPI turntable.

A new [‘cute’ says Neli] line of gear I haven’t seen before.

The traditional Epos speaker, Creek electronics, Music Hall turntable room.… Read the full article

Hugh Masekela dies

By | January 24th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , |

[Taking a break from the CES 2018 show report. ]

Hugh Masekela dies. This is a GREAT rendition of Stimela from 2015 [this is a classic song played at many high-end audio shows and also found on one of the Burmester test CDs]. Wish we could say that we are closer to ending the struggle…

There is a train that comes from Namibia and Malawi
There is a train that comes from Zambia and Zimbabwe
There is a train that comes from Angola and Mozambique
From Lesotho, from Botswana, from Swaziland
From all the hinterlands of Southern and Central Africa.… Read the full article

Triangle Art electronics and turntables with EgglestonWorks speakers at CES 2018

Neli took the photos this year. Mike stayed home, deciding that there was just not enough to do at CES this year. These were taken with her Samsung S8. Very nice.

CES 2018 and high-end audio

By | January 8th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: |

CES this year is even smaller than last year.

I count a very generous 66 rooms plus or minus, including rooms for earbuds, headphones and magazines. This is a far cry from just a few years ago when we had around 200 rooms in the Venetian and 60 to 100 rooms at T.H.E. Show held nearby.

But Neli wants to go, so…. [She’ll probably be found most of the time in the Lamm room. Me? I plan on taking photos, but think I’ll also be spending some time downstairs checking out the several 1000 booths in the Sands convention center]

Here are the floor plans:

Lamm  and Chord are the only people left on 34 and 35.… Read the full article
