So how was the show? Last year's show was pretty awful. This year's show was very good for many reasons. Just look at the smile on the face of Acoustic Sounds' Chad Kassem.

It was a hectic show for me. I had agreed to do two events each Friday and Saturday in conjunction with Colleen Murphy's Classic Album Sundays in a room featuring a Spiral Groove SG 1.1 turntable and Centroid arm, VTL Reference electronics including a pair of big Siegfried mono blocks and a pair of Wilson Audio Specialties MAXX 3 loudspeakers.

New York City based Atocha Design displayed a gorgeous looking, superbly crafted retro-cabinet designed to hold components and store records or other lesser media. All of the company's cabinetry is hand-crafted in the U.S.A. by a master cabinetmaker.

The latest turntable from Simon Yorke, the S-10 is a battery powered design that appears to be a seriously refined and updated edition of the S-7 that was my reference for nearly a decade.
