The New York Audio Show took the Palace Hotel and surrounding area shops by storm this weekend. I had the pleasure of attending the show on Saturday and am here with a quick show report of what I was able to see before things got too hectic.

CES 2013 has come to a close and we are happy to be home.....some final thoughts.....
Robert Kozel, Senior Editor, sums it up......The show had an enormous crowd of over 150,000 people. From an audio/video perspective, the new innovation was all around 4K displays. Every major manufacturer was showcasing 4K displays. The practical reality is that while the 4K displays were stunning, the general consumer will not be able to afford this technology for several more years at least until the prices come down to earth. The real stars of the show were the updated plasma and LED televisions that support the current HDTV standards. These new sets were gorgeous and offer the consumer some amazing technology and beautiful video quality at approachable pricing.
On the audio side of things...

Everyone has commented on the huge crowds and long lines. Senior Editor, Robert Kozel, summarized the show: Display Technology dominated the audio/visual arena with 4k, OLED, 3D (not so much). Personal Audio was very prevalent in the Audio world with lots of earphones, headphones, etc. Finally connectivity was prevalent throughout.....See John's Final Notes from CES and read all of the final reports in the CAVE.

Wrap-up Commentary......All images are in......50 plus!!!!
The 2011 installment of the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest turned out to be the tale of two technologies. I am personally something of a generational 'tweener'. I was born at the tail end of the Baby Boom Generation - but I'm not really a Baby Boomer and I'm not really a GenXer. I am young enough that there was a computer in my HS math class. I am old enough that I completely grew up on analog audio.

The second California Audio Show, produced by Constantine Soo of Dagogo.com, took place July 15-17 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Burlingame. If neither attendance nor room layout was exactly what dealers and manufacturers had hoped for, the combination of several fine sounding rooms, live performances, and information-packed seminars left many audiophiles smiling.
