T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2012
The Home Entertainment Show
Report By Steven R. Rochlin
In Cali even the
Roach Coaches are foo-fee and offer upscale food! That’s great because
you can have those Garden Burgers whilst I enjoy more greasy burgers... and you’ll be rolling me down the hallways at shows.
In the Acoustic Zen and Tri room they had TRX-M845SE monoblocks and Crescendo floorstanders
($22,500 and $16000 respectively). My wonderful girlfriend Heather said to me the speakers look gorgeous.
Dedalus Audios sweet looking walnut with decorative maple stripe
($9950). Smooth yet detailed with very realistic midrange.
My Maserati does 185. I lost my license, now I don't drive...
Callaway Corvette... nice!
The ugliest Porsche ever made. Look
guys, all you know how to do is a 911 for, what, around 50 years the same idea
over and over and over again. Stick with what you know. By the way, if Porsche
had any common sense, they'd relegate the 911 to the lower end
per se for the far superior Cayman S. So why does Porsche
cripple the Cayman S with a lackluster motor? Is it perhaps because Porsche
dares not admit the 911 is a flawed core engineering design? C'mon Porsche,
grow a pair and make a proper engine for the Cayman S and i'll seriously
consider buying one for street/track use.
Perhaps the finest high-end luxury grand
touring vehicle manufacturer today :) Bentley.
And that wraps up my T.H.E. Show Newport 2012
report. Wait, you are probably waiting for me to name the Best Sound or the
Best this or Best that, but quite frankly so many rooms had great sound that it is
impossible to choose just a few. In fact, by percentages, the number of
rooms with great sound was perhaps the highest of any show i have
attended to date! Ok, so that means out of 107 or so shows I have attended over the
past 15 years... Sorry all you high-end audio marketing companies, there is no
single Best Of to splash within your ad copy from Yours Truly, as there was so many
very impressive sounding rooms
that picking just one, or two, or four rooms is flawed imho. Anyway, if you
missed this event you really should make it here next year. Of course in the
end what really matters is that you...
Enjoy the Music,
Steven R. Rochlin
