Home Entertainment 2002

After the 2001 show's wildly successful run earlier this year, Home Entertainment 2002 is heading back again to the heart of New York City. HE2002 will take place May 30–June 2, 2002 at the Hilton New York.

Co-sponsored by Stereophile, Home Theater, and Stereophile Guide to Home Theater magazines, Home Entertainment 2002 (formerly the Hi-Fi Show) is a unique hands-on weekend extravaganza aimed at industry veterans and consumers alike, where you will see and hear the latest and best in home theater and high-performance audio. HE2002 promises to have on display the biggest and most comprehensive collection of innovative products the industry has to offer.

During the show, there will be live music to complement the high energy of the event. At the 2001 show last May, music fans were entertained by Keb' Mo' as the Saturday evening musical act, sponsored by Sony Electronics. In addition, David Johansen performed in the Friday night concert, sponsored by Chesky Records. We'll announce HE2002's acts here and on the show website as they are confirmed.

The HE2002 Seminar Forum will again present leading authorities in the areas of sound reproduction and home theater. Seminars will address a variety of topics, ranging from DVD-Audio and SACD, to Michael Fremer's wildly popular analog clinics, to the art of designing your own home-theater environment. An extensive two-part report on the 2001 show starts with the September issue of Stereophile.

Exhibitor and contact information for HE2002 is online now, while a complete list of live music events, audio/video seminars, panel discussions, and other special programs will be added to the HE2002 website later this year.
