LAAS-CANCELLED

The 2018 Los Angeles Audio Show has been cancelled, and refunds will be issued immediately according to a personal, and emotional statement released late Wednesday night by the show’s organizer Marine de Rogez-Presson. What this means exactly for the fate of the show in 2019 still seems to be determined, but it looks as if there may be only one LA-area show – The Home Entertainment Show, June 1-3, 2018 at the Marriott Irvine Spectrum Hotel – for the foreseeable future.… Read the full article

The Volti Rival.

I had to chuckle a little to myself when Volti Audio rolled out what it described as its “compact” loudspeaker at the Los Angeles Audio Show.

Calling the new model small, however is kind of like describing a Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan as “entry level.” Even with that car, you’re still getting plenty of luxury.

It’s much the same with the Rival ($7,900 to $11,900 USD/pair, depending on options). It’s still a Volti, and you’re still looking at a lot of speaker.… Read the full article

LA Audio Show 2017: D’Agostino muscle, Audio Research glow, YG finesse – an intoxicating mix

Hypnotic dials.

Have you ever been to a rock festival and started imagining your dream lineup in a hoped-for ending jam? What would it sound like to hear singer X with guitarist Y and drummer Z?

laas3Thoughts similar to that pop into my head as I approach each major audio show. You can never tell which brands are going to band together. Some companies tend to have long-term personal friendships or at least business ties that result in them making music together at almost every event, where others seem to change partners frequently.Read the full article

Los Angeles Audio Show: Welcome to the Jungle

LAAS-Thursday-Feature

Fly me to the moon.

I strung together a long list of swear words and shook my suitcase helplessly.

I was tired, and in no mood to be tested by an insubordinate piece of luggage.

I had arrived at my hotel room at the Sheraton Gateway for the Los Angeles Audio Show and couldn’t open my case for love or money.

LAAS-Thursday-20

Bringing audio to the masses.

Brian Hunter of Audiohead looked on impassively as my swearing hit a fevered pitch. He offered to attempt to remedy the situation, and I proffered the much-maligned case.… Read the full article

LA Audio Show: Inaugural event targets newcomers as well as hard-core hobbyists

If organizers of the Los Angeles Audio Show battled any jitters while planning their brand-new event in a very crowded year, those fears likely have eased in recent weeks.

The LA show, scheduled for June 2-4 at the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, has sold out its 115 listening rooms and ticket sales are running ahead of expectations.

Right now, the numbers look pretty good: 348 brands and manufacturers, and 58 dealers and distributors.

Officials declined to project attendance, but they have booked a hotel that can accommodate more than 10,000.… Read the full article
