T.H.E. Show Newport 2012 Update:
People: please bring a good variety of recordings to demo. The only exhibitors thus far, who had good modern recordings like Jack White’s 100% analog signal path-Blunderbuss were Centrance- yep the computer audio desktop people. By the way, the dual concentric Centrance speakers had great imaging for the nearfield monitoring of music. Great for the office.
I like all kinds of music, and I wish the audiophile market realized that young people will always want to hear current music releases too. Even though many modern recordings are over compressed and limited to death, current pop releases exist that would stir the young audiophile market more than hearing a wind quintet or a super quiet piano solo on full range speakers. Radiohead In Rainbows on 45 rpm or the Blunderbuss release from Jack White would certainly perk my ears up…even Getz I love so much.
T.H.E. Show exhibitors please ROCK the house on Sunday!!!
