Previously, on the Audio Federation high-end audio CES 2008 Show Report-o-rama, we just finished up T.H.E. Show Wednesday evening and it is now Thursday morning, the last day, and we are on our way down the first of the last two Venetian hallways (Wings) to finish up.

This page, then, is about half way down the hallway 'Wing C' on the 29th floor.

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
Next year, we'll have to spend more time here and make a photo-documentary of all the Tara Labs cables. This year, at this time it was what one might call panic mode - we HAD to get the rest of the Venetian photographed, and we had already used up one out of three memory sticks. The paln was to Keep moving Forward, and to not take too many photos of any one room (though the usual problem was talking a dozen photos of one stubborn component that refused to let itself be photographed - usually coming out too dark - and if I turned on the full flash - every piece of dust, now and in the future, that would show up on top of the component in the photo).

 

 

 

 
 
 
         
 
 

 

 

 

 

 
The Transroter room was very difficult for the camera this year. My apologies.
 
 
 
 
 
This is the start of the photos of the Transroter statement tutnrable.
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Wish me better luck next year with these photos... kind of a sad state of affairs this year. Of course, sure would like to HEAR the table sometime, too :-)

 

 

 

 

 
Another room with a Continuum table. I'm actually getting good at photoshopping Continuums at this point ... :-)
 
 
 
 
      
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 
Isophon loudspeakers and Western Electric electronics.
 
 
   
 
 
       
 
 
Transroter turntable.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 
Airtight electronics, JM Lab loudspeakers, Accuphase CD player.
 
 
 
 
 
As we peek inside, we can see it is not ALL tubes [in the first shot, it looks like a big box-o-tubes]. We can see a few transformer-like boxes down deep inside there, and a couple of medium size circuit boards. Hard to see, I knmow.
 
    
 
   
 
 
 
 
 
The Transroter turntable's controller box.
 

 

 

 

 

 
Avalon Eidolon Diamond [or Opus] loudspeakers, Accuphase electronics.
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 
Atohm speakers, Hegel electronics.
 
 
 
 
 
 
     
 
A smaller system also on display.

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
   
 
 

 

 

 
Speakers with modern aesthetics. The round red carpet there.... really makes a statement. It works to make the speakers look like they are part of the room.
 
        
 
 
   
 
The cup of latte there is to show the relative size of these little speakers...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
OK, on to the last 1/3 of this loooooong Wing 'C' on floor 29. Calling Dr. Welby
