The fall is upon us and that means that another edition of the TAVES Consumer Electronics Show is coming up. This year's show will be so much larger in size and scope, it will be almost like a brand new show. In fact, so many new elements have been added to the show this year, we decided to change the show name from the
Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show to TAVES Consumer Electronics
Show. The sleeker new name reflects far better what direction the show is taking. In addition to audio and video products, this year's TAVES will showcase a number of groundbreaking technologies such as holographic displays, an Oculus Rift virtual reality gaming area (the devices doesn't come out until May
2015!), Tesla electric cars, and mind control headbands – just to mention a few. I can hardly wait to see the show myself this year! Read all about the shiny new show in the
"TAVES Consumer Electronics Show Preview" in this issue.
Meanwhile, also inside this issue Bob Jones takes a closer look at the IMAX Private Theatre, a
personal lMAX theatre you can now install in your home... if you have the big bucks. Will this amazing technology trickle down into something that more movie buffs will be able to afford one day? Check out Bob's article and find out.
George de Sa on the other hand upgrades his music system with a full loom of Nordost Heimdall 2 cables in the "Upgrading an Audio System With Nordost Norse 2 Heimdall 2 Cables" feature. He takes a systematic approach, suggesting the best order in which to upgrade cables and what sonic improvements you can expect each step of the way. I have a feeling that many of CANADA HiFi's readers will be served well by his experience.
Rounding out the full pallet of articles in this issue, you will also find a number of insightful reviews. Enjoy your read. We hope to see you at
TAVES 2014 Oct. 31st through Nov. 2nd!
