Top Audio & Video 2003 Milan, Italy
Thursday Part 1
While Italian magazine AF Digitale booth was selling their
magazines, we are here reporting on the show live!
Polk Audio featured their new RTi line that includes the model 12 and 10 floorstanders plus the 6 monitor. The RTi12 is a six-driver statement piece with a frequency response from 18Hz to 27kHz and 90dB sensitivity.
With style and taste as only the Italians can pull off, Vismara Design's is their CD racks including the bluish Magma (€1,500), silver Columbus (€1,200), and orange Disko Floor (€1,000). They all are offered in various colors to the customer's delight.
They love their music -- and vinyl -- in Italy! Audiophile Sound had racks and racks of it awaiting the hands of music lovers.
Are you tired of huge loudspeakers and hard-edged cabinets? If so, then Audio Pro offers what you desire with their wooden Cinema line featuring the C5 slim floorstanding loudspeaker. This unit has four 4-inch drivers plus a 1-inch tweeter in a front-ported cabinet. Frequency response is from70Hz to 20kHz. Lower frequencies are reproduced by Audio Pro's Cinema Sub with 8-inch woofer, 75-watt built-in amplifier that together reproduce frequencies down to 50Hz.
HC (Home Cinema) magazine's Elisa was gladly showing
the benefits of subscribing to their magazine while at another booth you could
find Fidela del suono, Casa Hi-Tech and Constructuire, plus many digital audio discs were to be found here at the Top Audio & Video show in Milan.
Nakamichi's SoundSpace 9 holds three CDs, has radio tuner, and can support a main and remote location with music.
Car theater? You betcha! Unless your car has a glorious sound of its own (i.e. a Ferrari or other pure-breed racer), it makes sense to desire quality music reproduction when driving. Millions of music lovers spend hundreds of hours in their car so it makes perfect sense to desire high quality in this mobile environment. Pioneer was showing their car theater with color screen, door mounted upper frequency drivers, and woofers in the trunk.
