          Thx for posting these Myles.
          would love to have heard that full Trinity system. Bet the Cessaro's sounded fantastic in the big room. I loved them when Jeff Catalano brought them to RMAF a few years back but the room was not quite big enough for them.
          AE has some pretty spectacular gear!

            Myles, perhaps you want to lower the resolution of these pics down to say 650MB per piece rather than their full original 3.5x4.2MB sizes, they will resolve much quicker. For me I can't see any of them here, they appear as black only...which is sad.

              Are you able to see the last couple? Is anyone else having that issue? I can reduce the resolution but might take me a day or two.

                I see them, no problem.

            • #22
              I can see them OK -but I agree the files are 5000x3300px 172 x115cm wide and 46MB !!--too large for smooth Net Protocol Trans' hence a slow Broadband would struggle

              -- remember the Net file size is governed by PX only-- and safe full flow for 99% of sending and viewing can be

              resized ONLY using the Pixel dimensions--forget the others--

              I.E I'd use say 2000px X1500px @ 72 dpi Max-this usually is adequate but naturally only guide--you can go to 1500/1800px

                  Some stunning-looking kit there...
                  Some of it is readily identifiable, and some could probably be found with a little searching.
                  Some though comletely and utterly escapes me. I have no idea what some of it is!

                    I take it this show features selected products. I only see 3 US companies represented there: Miguel's Tripoint and Kevin's SRA. and Artisan Fidelity.

                    I've seen and heard a bit of the components but others are foreign to me:

                              Eric is one of a kind power amp made by Swedish audio firm Engstrom for Audioexotics. Engstrom is a well known audio name in Europe that builds tube amplification.

                              Wadax is also a well known Spanish audio producer, specializing in various digital products. Their phono amp is something very special as It converts the analog signal to digital and back and according to one of it's user, it beats even the reference Zanden 1200 Mk III. Something that's hard to believe for me but anything is possible...

                                I've had an extended listening session with the Wadax Phono--it is as stated --near state of the Art

                                a very very interesting product that uses the Digital aspect in its design presentation

                                I presume it will enter the US market at some stage
