NORDOST

 

 
 
The new Quantum Qx4 Power Purifier

 

 

SONY

 

 
 
 
Both those photos were of the XRB8. The XRB7 was across the way but I didn't see them until later and although they did look *slightly* different - I wasn't sure which I preferred- the 7 seemed to have blacker blacks... but maybe that was setup? The point being that setup seemed to have more to do with the way the picture looked than the model #... to these untrained eyes spending only a minute or less scoping these out. [But Neli definitely likes the XBR8 best. Luckily it is not yet available :-)]
 
See that white square area with a round hole to the right of the photos of the XBR8? This is what it looked like inside the hole .
 
 
That would hold a LOT of blu-ray discs.
 
The quartet of projectors for us lesser beings who cannot afford the Qualia.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Sony demo. Music was good, surprisingly. The sound of the movie, Kung Fu Hustle, when the Golden Bracelets master clanged his rings, was not so good.
 
What was driving the sound for the demo.
 
The VW70 presenting the demo. Anamorphic scaling mode looked reeeeal good to me.
 
This just looked cool.

 

 

 

SPEAKERCRAFT

 

 
Bizarre. Sounds absolutely horrible to me. Really Bizarre.
 
 
 
This was inside the square exhibit - tables and chairs for meetings with dealers and distributors under the tent things.

 

 

 

Just checking things out

 

 
 
A NAD display
 
Sonus Faber computer speakers. These are about 8 inches high.
 
 
Lots more - but it is getting late.... OK, back again. Here are some photos from yesterday.
 

 

 

 

BOULDER

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The new Boulder CD/SACD player uses memory-player-like technology.
 
 

 

 

 

Steinway, Lyngdorf

 

 
 
There is supposed to be a CD player and stuff in this column.

 

 

 

 

PANASONIC

 

 
 
This nice large plasma was a little grainy upon close inspection.
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

LOGITECH

 

 
The rear panel of the Transporter. Hmmm... that first line reminds all us consumers that truth in advertising is not being enforced much these days.
 
 

 

STARGLAS

 

 
This is the perfect size [though it may be too big to fit in our room] and the picture quality is very good. I want it. Bad. But we have no walls to put this rear-projection up against. Sucks.
 
 
Time to head down to the show for Saturday's feast.
