    Nordost did the same thing at Axpona in the VTL, Stenheim, Nordost room where they had a VPI Avenger on Sort Fut. These feet are designed to transmit vibrations out of the component, which makes their use under a turntable a reasonable application of the technology I would think.

    For me the standout room was the In Living Stereo room on the 5th floor. They were using the Mactone 120 power amp, Mactone XX-7000 preamp, Mactone XP-305 phono pre amp, Clearaudio Innovation Compact turntable and Tracer tonearm with Trenner & Friedl Osiris speakers. Warm, involving and rich sounding. The presentation was totally immersive. I found myself relaxing and just listening. No fatigue at all. Just glorious music. Well done, guys.

    +1 on the Elac Carina's, Larry.

    I too really enjoyed what was being presented in their room. When I was walking by, I heard Yello's La Habenera playing at a good volume and had to see what/who was producing it. The room was utterly packed so I didn't get a sitting position, however the speakers sounded great while standing at the rear so I can only imagine they'd be wonderful if you were actually sitting in the sweet spot or spots.

    Amazing little speakers those Carina's.

    The rather unusual appearance is what caught my eye, would like to hear them myself with some familiar tracks.
    Seems it was their first show also, can't help but wonder if that inexperience lead to a non-optimum setup. Shows can do that.
    Btww, thanks to all for comments, seems like overall, show was a success.

    cheers,

    I like Robert Harley's description of a pair of the Wilson WatchDog subwoofers:

    ".... This show the DAW was demonstrated with a pair of Wilson Watchdog subwoofers and Wilson’s new outboard crossover. Throughout the show they did comparisons with and without the subwoofers engaged, with surprising results. Adding the subwoofer affected the entire spectrum, with greater spaciousness along with higher resolution of midrange detail."
