Whos's going to the NYC Audio show? - Page 3

post #31 of 39
When the Stereophile show was held in Chicago a few years ago it was basically "boycotted"by the Chicago area audio community.Why?I still don't know(I went).Attendance was low and area coverage was basically non-existant.The move to NY was a good one and I look forward to attending.I am headed off to the CES Las Vegas tonite.I will post pics and thoughts(I've never been).

The truth about "audio snobs"(they do exist)is that they need us(music lovers)much more than we need them.This market(HIFI,MID-FI,Headphone gear,etc.)is driven by people who listen to music,not equipment.You should hear some of the **** I get from audiophiles(especially west coast)about my record collection and choice of equipment.I own 6,200 records and about 4,000 CDs.The conversations usually go."You Chicago guys are the type that own 10,000 records and play them on a $75.00 turntable".My answer is typically"you west coast audiophiles usually got a $10,000 turntable and 10 records to play on it".this response is usually met with colorful metaphoric exchange.This is all silly as are the Hi-definition format wars.We will all lose in the end.All who attend these shows need to make their feelings known.Whatever they may be.

I'm going to have a good time and hopefully meet some of my head-fier comrades...any snobbery will be dealt with a swift kick (size 13 sneaker) to the ass (or right into their ass). No one is going to ruin my excitement and joy

Good. That will be the perfect cover I need for, ah, borrowing a pair of Martin Logans. Any resistance met will be dealt w/ by a loud blast of j-pop and another swift kick to the arse as they scurry away.

Got to think about this. I last went to an electronics show at one of the early Stereophile shows in New York. I actually won a door prize at the Monster Cable suite...a set of their M-1 speaker cables, at that time their top of the line, retailing for about $400 (actually cost more than the MH-750, which it came out to compete against). I now have to overcome the fear of winning another Monster Cable product before I can go to a show

(Actually, the M-1 was a pretty good cable at that time...the cable boom was just beginning and expensive cabling was still a novelty that the audiophile community, and those who want their money, were just beginning to explore.)
