I am enjoying the show. I like the custom Deja Vu horn system and the horn system that Viva has introduced to this country at this show. Both horn systems are free of the roughness and nasal coloration associated with horn systems. Overall, I liked these systems the most, although both are pricey.
I was also extremely impressed with the Pure Audio Project Trio speaker/Pass
integrated system. The speakers are open baffle speakers with twin woofers and a midrange/tweeter coaxial drive in between the woofers. This is the kind of clear, yet not thin and bright sound I like, with a very natural sounding attack and decay of note. I prefer a little more warmth and “weight” but these are fantastic speakers. The BIG shock to me was the $8450 price (if I recall correctly). If they had said $35,000, I would have said “not bad,” but the quoted price left me speechless. I cannot recall the name of the speaker cables (very thin and wide ribbon-type cables but they must be very good to let this kind of sound through, and I was quoted $900, again, a bargain.
