    Thanks for the pictures. I was there as well and really liked the new location. Felt way easier to see more rooms.

    Great to meet Skip in person and his room sounded great. Was also a big fan of both Salks rooms, Spatial, Wilson Audio (there were a few rooms with their speakers). I also thought the Emotiva and JTR theaters were pretty cool. Loud, but cool.

    Overall a good experience and the ability to listen to some systems that cost more than my house is fun.

    If they don't remember anything when they wake up, they still won't spend anything... They need to be told to remember to hand them their wallets and open them.

    Ha Ha the world traveler got incarerated overseas, I guess that's a good enough reason for him missing the show then. Hopefully he gets out in time to entertain them Texas fellers down at the Lonestar show. :p
