New York Audio Show 2013: Part 2

Okay, so this is a bit absurd, but yes, here it is, Part 2 of my coverage of the New York Audio Show, now online over at The Absolute Sound. And only a month late!

In all fairness, Part 1 has been online that whole time. So there.

  1. Maybe MBL could be set up you know, before the show, so that those of us who can only be there Friday can hear the gear. Maybe next year??

  2. Another great round of show coverage! Thanks for posting the extra photos here. Perhaps you can convince TAS to run all of them next time…

  3. Thanks for the pictures, the JA Pearl 3s, Red Wine, And Dan’s kit are the aesthetic standouts.

  4. Hey dude-

    Many thanx again for your gracious commentary on our exhibitor efforts at the recent NYAS. It’s always fun to run into you (even if your stash of tag along photo gear & your already enormous head continue to grow)! In all sincere candor, your pics were again excellent!

    • Liar!

      I’ve seen your photos, remember?

      By comparison, I am a simple unworthy, writhing with my own insignificance. And rightfully so!
