Anyone here going to CES/T.H.E Show in January?
« on: October 24, 2008, 07:46:06 AM »
Just curious if anyone here is making the trek to Vegas.  I went last year and had a blast.  Matter of fact, that is where I was "re-introduced" to the open reel format!  It was in Winston Ma's FIM room and the sound was glorious.  Now, some 5-6 decks later, I believe in entrenched in the format.  ;)

Anyhow, I'm 98% certain I'll be going back this year.  Any fellow TP fans coming?  Also, are there plans for a "Tape Project" room there or are there going to be decks loaned out to various rooms like last year?

Regards, Joel

Hi Jay,
January 8th through 11th.  That's a Thursday through Sunday deal.  Much better then last years which started on a Monday.  Have you ever attended one before?

i've been to CES/T.H.E. Show 6 or 7 times...about every other year. it is a dealer/press show and not intended to be a consumer/enthusiast show...although high end audio does attract lots of non-industry types. T.H.E. show has a more relaxed vibe compared to the high end audio CES at the Venetian.

it is quite a bit more serious than RMAF in Denver. many rooms are focused on press and finding new dealers so they don't want to accomodate consumers directly.

i do like that it starts on a Thursday this year so i only need to miss one day of work if i fly down on Thursday night.

Hi Mike/Jay,
I agree that THE Show was more relaxed and laid back.  The NFS room at THE Show alone was worth the trip Mike if you know what I mean.
Your spot on about CES Mike----pretty serious and there were a few manufacturers who approached me about carrying their lines at CES which was pretty funny as I am not a dealer myself.  I have friends who are and I tagged along with them.  All it took to get in was a business card from their audio store with the owners name crossed off on it and mine written in with ink pen!  So, obviously, if one wants to go as a layman it can't be too tough to get in.

I really want to go to RMAF next year.  I believe that is where the more "passionate" and down to earth/hobbiest audio-folks now go. 

Anyhow, let me know if you guys are going to CES/THE Show, we should meet in person at the very least.

Take care, Joel
