Black Ice Audio, the evolutionary brand of JoLida, driving Vienna Acoustics speakers to another Best Rooms award

The Atrium decked out for record sales had a thin, but steady crowd on Friday. The same could be said for then entire show on Friday, which was fine for those like me who are compromised by Covid. Fortunately, virtually everyone wore a mask at the show. And hopefully for the presenters the crowd picked up on Saturday and Sunday.

On an easel by one set of elevators was this photo tribute to the late Art Dudley, who for many years produced and published Listener magazine. I stopped to read the comments others had written. I think fondly of our encounters at the Montreal shows over the years and his love of the Linn LP12 was a great inspiration for my further adventures with that turntable. He was certainly a mentor-in-absensia for many writers and readers alike.

 

 

 

Doubling back to the Salk, McGary and Anticables room on the 5th floor I found the large red floorstanders driven by the matching red power amp that were both on silent display earlier in the afternoon. The music here spoke very well for the Anticables that connected everything.

 

 

 

Dropping down to Atrium floor to meet up with Tom at the end of the day, I came upon the display for Isonic ultrasonic record cleaners that provide a rapid and affordable way to clean more records in less time at lower cost than any other ultrasonic cleaner I've seen.
