The Cars



  Let's first start out with my favorite car.  Well, as a Formula 1 lover what can i say.  The home audio folks have their fancy listening room, though i doubt they can go from 0 to 60 mph in less then 6 seconds and look good while doing it :-{)+ .

Fuse is just like going to a killer car show.  BWMs, Mercedes, Ferraris, Acuras, Hondas, and many other vehicles both speed and sport were there.

What has amazed me over the many years of being involved in mobile music reproduction is how creative the installations have become.  In the early 80's it was customized speaker boxes, yet today we find totally customized vehicles including the main dashboard!  Please check out the LCD panel display in the center of the dashboard!   Of course all the normal instrumentation has also been changed to enhance the look and feel of the car too.

In fact not only are there killer tunes, though if you look closely at the car to the right you will see at the topmost part of this photo a Sony Playstation to the left and a Panasonic DVD player on the right.  Hmmm... a DVD player in the car.   brings a new meaning to the phrase "drive in movie".  As i see it, this might also spell the availability to enjoy the new 24-bit/96kHz DAD discs in your car too!  All that's really needed to enjoy this new higher quality music software is a DVD player or DVD-Rom and a supporting decoder.  Hopefully when Clarion releases the new Auto PC (which has been held back until September) it will have a DVD-Rom and therefore we can all enjoy not only the usual fun the Auto PC is capable of, but also super high resolution software also.


The "Big Apple" Van

While strolling through the judging lanes was this van that this phat unique, creative, and amusing  installation.  If you carefully look at the larger photo from the small "thumbnail" to the left you'll not only be amused, yet by looking carefully at the twin towers you'll notice that they are actually amplifiers!   Who ever said that mobile music reproduction is limited to black or silver boxes on a stand like home music reproduction usually is.  Not tryin' to rag on home music reproduction, i love it, yet it seems the mobile folks are having lottsa fun.


Sony Demo Van Here's the Sony van filled with lottsa gear.   The craftsmanship of the power wiring as seen in the center is what helps to separate the men from the boys (or women from the girls).  Speaking of which, there were quite a few female competitors at the show too.  This van was soooo tasty lookin' one just couldn't help but stop and take a closer look.
