WCES

Welcome...

      To my 1997 WCES coverage. Included are pictures of new, 
 hot products, toys, new technology, and other items of interest.  
 So please sit back, relax, play your favorite recording, and grab 
 some snakkies while reading our show coverage. Here we go...

Music Maestro!

(In the theme music of Pee Wee's Playhouse)

"C'mon in and pull yourself up a chair (that's Chairy)
 Let the fun begin, it's time to let down your hair
 Stevies so excited  8-)
 'Cause his friends have been invited (THAT'S YOU!)
 Go wacky at Stevies playhouse (AAAAH!!!  %-) )

 There's a crazy rhythm comin' from WCES Land (what's that?)
 Dirty Dog and Chicky Baby in a puppet band (YEAH!)
 There's a couple of talking fish
 And a Genie who'll grant your wish
 Jombie is coo-coo
 At Stevies playhouse"

Day One:

      Mainly i focused all my attention on MUSIC available on vinyl 
 and CDs.  If you've never been to the WCES, the good stuff 
 sells out fast so i wanted to be first in line for those low 
 pressing numbered recordings.  After all, without cool music 
 what's the point?  i also added a very small selection in the 
 HOT PRODUCTS page and one killer pair of speakers 
 on the equipment page.  Tomorrow we're going to focus 
 our attention to equipment.  Stay tuned cool dudettes/dudes.  
 Same bat time.  Same bat channel.

Day Two:

      Today we went through the main convention center where
 one finds the likes of Sony, Pioneer, JBL as well as smaller, yet
 still quite known companies.  So day one was mostly music, day two 
 is mainly equipment.  Oooooh yeah, and the most SLAMMATOCIOUS 
 FI party too.  MAN, those FI dudes can PAR-TEE HAR-TEE!!!

Day Three:

      Today we struck pure gold, or should i say chrome.  Everyone 
 who knows me will tell ya i enjoy tubes.  Well, i finally found
 a complete solid-state system i can happily live with.  Blasphemy you
 say.  Hear me now but read it today and slap me happy tomorrow.
 This lil' ol' solid-state music reproduction jammed in my humble
 opinion.  On the opposite extreme we have JOLY.  Need i say 
 more?!?!?!  Oh yeah.  Chesky Records supplied live tunedge at the
 Hard Rock in Vegas too!

Day Four:

      Friends, Romans and countrymen, lend me an E.A.R.  And
 while you're at it, a KILLER turntable, a Krell, an' a kool 
 VAC snakkies... All this and more during our last day of WCES '97.

Final Feelings

      It seems to me the "high-end" is "gettin' it".  Most folks just 
 don't have the spendable cash like they did years ago.  Therefor 
 we are seeing the like of Theta producing $1,250 transports 
 and integrated tube preamp/amplifier combinations.  There's 
 just more "bang for the buck" gear at this show than any other 
 i've seen or heard about.  So enjoy my friends and bask in the 
 glory of true value for your dollars.


      With sooo much to see and do, it amazes me i covered as 
 much as i did.  My humble apologies, yet i had to select only a few 
 of the MANY worthy products for my www site.  If you're a member 
 of Compuserve, more goodies will be revealed on my WCES report 
 in the CEAUDIO forum.  A most humble thanks for your time.  If 
 you have any questions, please feel free to lemme know.
