(This post was originally published on the Stereophile.com website where you can also find very thorough coverage of T.H.E. Show Newport 2013. With John Atkinson and Jason Serinius on the job, I was free to look for analog gear knowing their report would cover the systems and sound-Ed).

After attending the industrial strength Munich High End Show, any other audio show anywhere would probably be somewhat of a letdown. I attended T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2013 with little expectation of analog news.

Tube freaks got a dose of "valve porn" in Kevin Deal's Upscale Audio room. Deal has been roaming the world in search of NOS tubes and he put on display some of his treasures: musty old boxes filled with NOS (new old stock) tubes unearthed in former Soviet bloc country warehouses as well as a huge trove he discovered by chance recently in Paris.

T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2013 is underway and coverage will begin later today. I participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony with John Atkinson, Robert Harley and Dr. David Robinson wearing the GoPro camera so you could see the event from my perspective but the camera was accidentally set to 'still' and I didn't get the video.
