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...
(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"
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.
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!!!
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!
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.

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.
