At the Trading Post
Things are slowly heating up, as I sit here in the hotel cafe, The Trading Post. In the last few minutes I've spotted Mike Manousselis of Dynaudio, John Quick of Tempo Sales & Marketing (distributors of Nagra, Verity, dCS, and Musical Fidelity), Paul Barton of PSB Loudspeakers, Walter Swanbon of Fidelis AV, Richard Vandersteen of Vandersteen (of course), and Vinnie Rossi of Red Wine Audio.
In addition, I just met Matthew Silberstein of The Sound Organisation, importers and distributors of Rega, Primare, Dali, and the Chord Company. Silberstein assures me that review samples of Rega's promising, new RP-1 turntable will be available very soon.
And now I've finally just met Bill Leebens of Audiogon, who informs me that Lars Erickson of Sjofen HiFi is here with a hot new speaker, poised to outperform any other design we've seen from him, and set to sell at under a grand.
