  Those looking to add a bit of nostalgia into their life may enjoy the TEAC GF-280 AM/FM/CD player with faux top horn. Below it are the SL-D80 AM/FM/CD alarm clock that is available in Black or Blue.


Mart International is the distributor of Yamaha audio/video products including the DSP-AX1 Natural Sound cinema DSP enabled receiver. With a plethora of inputs and outputs, this unit easily decodes both dts and Dolby Digital while also providing many different sound enhancement modes.


Epson's new Photo 75EPX photo quality printer (R$1,200) can print photos without the need of a computer. A slot for one memory card is provided for ease of printing. While not audio related per se, as an amateur photographer i always try to keep an eye on things of beauty. For those who enjoy motion pictures, Epson also offers a line of projection units.


Toshiba's solid copper chassis SD-9200 DVD Audio/Video player (R$4,590) is capable of replaying virtually every WG-4 approved 5-inch digital disc format. This includes HDCD/DVD-V/DVD-A/dts/Dolby Digital and of course the normal audio compact disc. Composite video outputs, 5.1 channel pre-amplified analog, 2-channel, and bitstream/PCM digital output are included. Toshiba also were showcasing a very wide variety of television/video products.


If one could see past the crowd of music and movie enthusiasts, the Pacific Music room was filed with thousands of software titles for sale. Despite the RIAA's insistence of how MP3 is rung the legitimate marketplace, it appears many people are still buying legal software from authorized dealers.


The Sennheiser room was filled with many different models... including their ever popular with audiophile HD 600 as reviewed by yours truly in July's Enjoy the Music.com Review Magazine.


The CAVI Records room were playing their Andrè Geraissati SACD release using a Philips SACD1000 player, Gryphon Callisto 2200 integrated amplifier and stand-mounted Dynaudio Audience 52 loudspeakers.


Speaking of Philips, their room had a very wide variety of direct view (tube), LCD, and projector video units. Seen above is their DVDR985 DVD-ReWriteable unit ($2,500 US). With all the usual DVD-Video features, this model can also record audio and video so one can make their own DVDs! A huge variety of outputs (both audio and video) are supplemented by inputs including composite, S-Video, analog stereo audio and normal antenna.


Also in the Philips was the DVD9625A DVD-Video/SACD player (approximately R$3,000 and there are right now only three of these in Brazil). Also of note is that this unit includes the Faroudja DCDi video processing. Note the two SACD discs that are included with the unit. One disc is an Iván Fisher presenting the Budapest Festival Orchestra playing various classical pieces while the other is Jerry Goldsmith and many different movie melodies.


This incredibly small unit by LG (a popular European brand not usually seen in the United States) is their DAS-3530N (R$1,699). While a bit deep at about 16 inches, this 3-inch high unit produces a total of 180 watts. DVD-Video with the usual features are provided for plus, as an added feature, MP3 discs are also playable.


Sony had their new DCR-PC115 digital camera/camcorder (R$7,999). Besides the usual DV tape, this unit also accepts Sony's Memory Stick. MPEG-1 movies are easily downloaded via FireWire connection. Also available are analog video and stereo input/outputs. This is a basic1.5Meg pixel still camera as well.


Dressed to the "nines" was a Philco representative who was handing out entry forms to win one of their new DV-P2500 DVD/Super VCD/MP3/VCD/CD karaoke players (R$600).


All show attendee visiting the Philco room could enjoy a nice fresh cup of espresso or cappuccino. If there i one thing this reporters finds truly enjoyable, it is a great cup of nearly paint-thick java. Good music, a superlative espresso, and a cigar...  Sweet dreams are made of these.
