  The first show of 2016 had been moved back a week this year to the beginning of the Golden Week holiday period. That gave it a slightly subdued feeling compared to previous years. The highlight product of the show was Ultrasone's Tribute 7, which harks back to their first "Edition" series headphones, the Edition 7. More relevant to collectors than anything it, as a pair of headphones, much the same kind of deal as the Signature series, and the Edition 9 before that,...
I'm planning to be there too. Will be my first ever time to SF.
 MrSpeakers Ether or Ether C. That was my favourite combo at meets.
No. Onkyo HF Player.
Ahh...my fun tease has been ruined! Dang party poopers!    It's a lovely, smooth-sounding device. Uses quite a bit of my iPhone 6's battery though.

I think this was most apparent when we didn't have to struggle to find seats in Starbucks in the morning!   Even though there weren't so many big-sounding announcements, there was some interesting stuff and I got to spend Sunday trying some interesting gear which wasn't at the show. 
I'll be in Tokyo from Thursday afternoon through to Monday morning, so if anyone wants to meet up, feel free to PM me.
