Was going to post last night. Then AJ dragged me off a mile's walk to a non-existent restaurant and when we got back I collapsed for the night. AJ's fault!

Have heard lots of great gear, have 25 reports to write so far, and I will get started while munching on some dinner.

These are the rooms I have spent quality time in, in the order visited, and will write about starting now.
  • Soundfield Audio (AJ's speakers) - AJ vs. gravity; gravity won; great job anyway, AJ! The man has class!
  • Legacy Audio - serious BIG monopoles.
  • German Physics, AIX Records - surround recordings, immersive speakers.
  • Scaena Speakers - big linear array.
  • Purist Audio Design - midrange horn with grab power.
  • Acoustic Zen Speakers - oneness of sound.
  • Tyler Acoustics - FUN speakers.
  • KEF - nice little speakers... well, the big ones are nice, too.
  • Dynaudio - perfect?
  • Wilson Audio - perfect?
  • Wilson Audio - "budget" model.
  • MartinLogan - reminded why I am such a fan!
  • MartinLogan - ditto.
  • Horning Hybrid Systems - lively!
  • Magico - saved by an attentive rep.
  • Focal - they can even play CDs!
  • Dynaudio - yeah, I just can't help myself.
  • to be named later - sounds like vinyl.
  • Baltic Speakers - serious fun!
  • JTR Speakers - Caterpillar or Mercedes?
  • Endeavor Audio - And She Was.
  • Daedalus Audio - "Engage!"
  • Vapor Audio - do no harm - as in they can't.
  • Madison Fielding - plant stands that SING!
Reports to follow in the Official Report thread...

Speakers made from butcher block? Good thing I'm all thumbs or I would have to buy new countertops:). Not sure if the green speakers are a color I would be showing off at a show. Thanks for the reports so far.

The show reports have all been completed. I thoroughly enjoyed attending the show and listening and doing my best to share the experience with HTS readers. Cheers.
Thanks for your hard work! I would like to go see a show like this but my wife may not like that idea:devil:

I just became aware of your show report, and it was a very enjoyable read.

I got excited when I got to Legacy Audio because I have been a fan from afar for a very long time, and the Whispers have always appealed to me. So glad to hear you thought they were awesome and your favorite in the general price class. They're my dream speaker, and it sounds like justifiably so.

The only problem is that every time I read a review or report from you, I have to add another speaker to my must-hear list. This time it was the Monitor Audio Silver series. A few years ago I heard the RX8 (predecessor to the Silver 8) and I liked it quite a lot. It was on my list for a while, but got lost among a handful of others. Well, now it's back on the list, but it will have to be the Silver 8 instead of the Silver 10.

Thanks for a great report.
