INTRO

 

 
It was 65 to 85 here - quite variable during the afternoon. Supposed to be 55 degrees and rainy tomorrow.

HALCRO and Acoustic Zen*

 

 
A new color for Halcro dm88 amplifiers. Matches the Acoustic Zen speakers - but more to the point, ... but I think I might prefer piano black.
 
The Halcro preamplifier
 
The rear of the dm8 pre
 
The new SSP220

Wandering Around some more...

 

 
 
 
 
 
The new Pioneer PRO-111FD for about $4K with the video from last year to show the deep blacks it is capable of.

KRELL (more later)

 

 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

McIntosh

 

 
 
Everyone else photographs the front, so we'll show you the rears.

 

 

 

 

Wandering...

 

 
Hmmmm....
 

 

 

WILSON AUDIO

 

 
Wilson shows off their Alexandria loudspeakers for the first time at a show [that we are aware of]
 
 
 
Thor's Hammer subwoofer. Bigger better bass from Wilson.
 
 
 
    
OK, more Alexandria photos. Neli said somebody should smack all these people treating the Alexandria X2 with such disrespect... getting their finger prints all over these beauties. Luckily I was focused on taking the photos, and did not see what was going on - otherwise we would of tag-teamed the crowd, or smiled at them like salespeople - that usually works  :-). - or at least informed them of the $145K [last I heard] price, anyway. High prices usually make people a little more respectful - considering they were only on static display.
 
   
 
 
 
The Alexandria is only about a foot? taller than the MAXX III

 

 

 

SONY

 

 
Martin Logan showing off the insides of one of their speakers.
 
 
 
The new Martin Logan CLK full-range electrostatic loud speaker.
 
 
Their DESCENT subwoofer
 

 

 

 

TEAC / ESOTERIC

 

 
 
No Esoteric components on display - but I thought this was cool.
