I think we're part of the audiophile world, but I think we're different too.

Okay, nobody but a few hard-core geeks are going to care, but one of the highlights of the show for me was getting to check out the new APx555 from Audio Precision.

Anybody got a spare $28,000?

Don't particularly like the word, but it was the one that was flashing on and off in my head like a neon sign. The HE-400S is going to be disruptive!

Proving that there's an after market for just about everything, Alex Zaets' heavily modified Oppo PM-2 really is an ear opener. The Audio Zenith PMx2 is a headphone worth hearing.

Ha! I had a Conductor Virtuoso still in its shipping box at home as I visited Burson Audio's booth at Newport. Heck, I'll fire it up as I write this post!

Out of the frying pan and into the fire...yup, I'm going to evaluate some Synergistic products.

I have no idea what to expect.

I've seen this product go from mock-ups, to pre-production parts, to working pre-production, to actual product over the course of the last 4-5 trades shows I've attended. What a treat to finally hear one!

Headphone amp and accessory maker ALO Audio has been around for a long, long time, as it's measured in the world of headphones, but now they're new again incarnate as Campfire Audio, an earphone and possibly headphone maker.

I must be a blond in the audiophile world. Put a box in front of me with twitching meters and blinking lights and I get mesmerized and just gotta futz with it.

I don't need one, but the Hilo is a fun gizmo.

For the first time ever (for me anyway) I walked into a dealer room and it's all headphones! What's the story here?

T.H.E. Show Newport found a new home this year in the Hotel Irvine, and my, what a lovely place it is. But T.H.E. Show is much more than its venue, follow along with me for the next few days and we'll have a look at the event from a headphone enthusiasts point of view.

Jimmy Moon gave me the run-down on Astell&Kern's two new players that bracket their line in the most and least expensive slots.

Woot! Almost time to head off to sunny Southern California for T.H.E. Show Newport, a Richard Beers and Bob Levi (AKA The Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society) audio show/shindig likely made all the better this year in its new digs at The Hotel Irvine, just a hop-skip from John Wayne Orange County Airport.
