When in Paris in October for the Paris Hifi Show, I took the time to go and visit two shops specialising in Vintage Hifi, with a great collection of French products from the 70s and 80s, but also some iconic products from Germany, Switzerland, UK, USA and Japan.
Read my review on our "Interviews and Reviews" page and then visit their websites for more photos and technical specs, and who knows, maybe buying the rare amp or speaker or turntable you have been dreaming of for some time...
Happy New Year to all my readers, with a special mention for those of you that are about to Celebrate Chinese New Year in a few days.
Las Vegas had it all ready to go last week already, and in typical Vegas extravaganza, the whole garden at the Bellagio was transformed into a Chinese garden complete with bridge, dragon and music kiosk complete with traditional LIVE Chinese music band!
Tons of red lanterns were hung from the ceilings, in every corridor, with special red lighting hung on trees, etc...
It was really quite spectacular. Let see if Sydney can beat it on Saturday night for the opening ceremony of the festivities!
BTW, the 2012 International CES had a record number of exhibitors (3,100) and visitors (more than 153,000!).
The parallel High End Hifi Show, The Home Entertainement Show (T.H.E. Show) was also well attended (and is organised by the Chester Group, responsible for the Melbourne Show...).
I will report in more details on these two Shows over the next few days.
