  • Jonathan Valin Listens to Some Super Speakers

    Sounds like CES is in the final stages of its downward, death spiral.

    Well since we are no longer a part of TPP, building walls, threatening to withdraw from NATO, and turning our view of the world inward, its hard to imagine overseas manufacturers clamoring to display at CES. I haven't been there in 4 years but the last time I attended the first day a lot of rooms weren't open until the afternoon on the first day. Not a good sign even then.

      Would you feel better if there were safe space rooms at CES? :-)

      It's quite expensive for foreign manufacturers to participate. It's expensive for any exhibitor. The extra day needed by some to be ready at the start of opening day is expensive.

      CES attendance and vendor participation has been dropping for at least five years, probably more - at least for hi-end audio.

        Jackson Galaxy sells safe space on his website. 😎

      I'd like to hear those ELACs though their looks leave me cold. Plus the Rockport speakers. I don't get the Philharmonia speaker. Twice I've heard them and twice I walked away puzzled and disconcerted. Sounds like a speaker in the sky and thin.

      Not surprised by JV's reaction to the M3s. 😎 His comment on the the first DS Optical cartridge coincided with mine. I thought the more expensive version at RMAF was totally different sounding and much better. Sounds like the smaller version follows in its shoes.
