Salon Audio Montréal Audiofest Show Report Part
The larger rooms at the Bonaventure are on the lower level, accessible by a long escalator, but first, I inspected the rooftop wilderness pond to make sure all the ducks were accounted for and none ended up on plates at the Industry Banquet.
Ah, yes, 52 seems about right.
Near the top of the elevator, Anne Bisson insisted I wait until she finished her breakfast donut before I take her photo.
Motet was set up with Fidelio recordings and LPs by Vincent Belanger and others at the bottom of the escalator.
To the right of the elevators, the line was clearly too long for the Lamborghini Uber.
Turning back in the other direction I found Isabeau Corriveau, a regular at shows these days.
Montreal 1 DR Acoustics
Last year I covered the DR Acoustics Antigone power conditioner (8495$) that was in use here and offered a 20% show discount. This year they had their soon-to-be-released Polynice ground box (5495$) on silent display, also offered with a 20% show discount, with the top removed for all to see inside.
The cylinders contain a mixture of micro-quartz to reduce vibrations in the signal path and reduce RFI. Point-to-point hand wiring and nothing to restrain current flow are other features.
The Polynice has four Rhodium-plated pure copper inputs as well as posts for grounding the circuit boards of components in the rig.
Many of the other products, including cables and power cords were also offered at show special pricing.
