Hi Suave and all. Suave did you attend the 25th Salon Son et Image in Montreal?
I attended Friday and was to put it mildly disappointed. It was after all the 25th anniversary of the Salon. I've attended about 15 out of the 25 years.
Serious questions have to be asked about this Montreal Salon. It isn't growing, its floundering to find an identity. There was no excitment at all about this show. I expected something special for a 25th year of existence but no such luck. It was a dud.
No effort seems to be made to get a younger deomgraphic involved. Too many old guard, nothing new, turntables and tubes everywhere New technology was very hard to find.
The Image part of the Salon was close to invisilble, no OLED, no Home Theater except a room with Klipsch and Epson, no tablets.
One good thing I finally got to listen to Atlantic Technologies H Pass speakers and they sounding awesome, low bass with small 5 1/2" drivers, flat down to 29 HZ. Very relaxing natural non aggressive sound all this for 3000$ Cdn.
The show has to change or face disappearing.
I will be making an effort to attend the TAVES show in TO this year and maybe this will renew my faith in the Salon Son et Image.
