Montreal Show Starts Thursday

Stereophile is partnering with the Festival Son & Image, to be held in Montreal, Canada, Thursday April 3 through Sunday, April 6. The first day is for trade and press only—public admission starts on Friday at 11am. More than 120 brands will be demonstrated in rooms on 11 floors of the Sheraton Centre hotel in downtown Montreal, and the Show's keynote speech is being given by Monster Cable's Noel Lee at 10am on the trade day, Thursday April 3.

Stereophile will be blogging live from the Show and the magazine's team of editors and writers, including John Marks, Wes Phillips, Robert Deutsch, and editor John Atkinson will be hosting an "Ask The Editors" seminar on Saturday April 5 at 2pm. JA's jazz trio, featuring reviewer Bob Reina on piano, will be giving a lunchtime concert, also on Saturday, while Bob's jazz group Attention Screen will be performing for showgoers Friday evening at 8pm. (Their CD Live at Merkin Hall was released last year as a Stereophile CD.)

Festival Son et Image will take place at the Sheraton Centre, 1201 René-Lévesque Boulevard West, in Montreal. Public show times are April 4, 11am–9pm; April 5, 10:00am–6:00pm, and April 6, 10:00am–5:00pm. For more info, visit
