Fun with Nico in the Totem Room

I could barely make my way into the Totem room. The crowd stretched out into the hall. When I finally found some space, I made sure to have some fun.

"May I see the photo?" Totem's Nico Bruzzese asked.

"Sure," I said, bringing my little digital camera around for him to see.

The look on his face. I laughed.

"I know where you live," Nico threatened, "I've got your shipping address!"

I think he was trying to say that he didn't want me to post this photo of him standing beside the Native American mask. I'm sorry, Nico. But please feel free to use my shipping address. I loved the tiny Dreamcatchers ($450/pair) matched up with Plinius' 9200 integrated amp ($4195) and CD 101 ($4495), set up in the fantastically decorated Totem suite.

"Where's the subwoofer?" people kept asking. The sound was so wide and full, bass so incredibly deep and right.

It's no wonder that the place was standing room only all day long.
