  Celebrating 28 Years Of Service To Music Lovers



Las Vegas 2001



  While T.H.E. Show and the CES technically begins tomorrow, we have been busy getting you coverage today! A full day before the show begins. Here are some of the highlights....


T.H.E. Show Lobby

Within the front lobby of T.H.E. Show is a huge display consisting of (partially) from left to right: Pearl loudspeakers (see our Milan 1999 and Milan 2000 show for more details on these, the Nightingale ADM-30 tube amplifier (again, see our Milan show coverage), and VYGER turntable (Milan shows yet again). It looks as though the Italians have conquered T.H.E. Show lobby!



In the Raudio room was the Resolution Audio CD50 transport, the wood center box is their Raudio DAC-i 24-bit/96kHz ($2,800) and their black box on the left is their Stage Explorer pre-amplifier ($1,380). Loudspeakers are their Chadwick ($7,800) as featured in our pre-show report. Loudspeaker cabling is by Harmonic Technology.


Glass Amplifier Glass Amplifier Top

Cool sights to be had as this lovely red chimney-like almost three foot high amplifier called the Glass Amplifier ($42,000). Seen here worldwide first, it is employs a pair of 300B output tubes in SEP operation to achieve 20 wpc. Inside you will find Audio Note silver wired transformers, a completely dual mono construction (including two power cords needed for operation!) while all power capacitors are from Black Gate and the signal capacitors are custom made silver foil jobbies. Dual mono DACT CT-1 stepped attenuators allow for volume adjustment. The DACT CT-100 phono stage is also built-in. Being a minimalist company, there are only two inputs. One is the phono stage while the other is a standard pre-amplifier input. The second photo is as viewing the unit from above. You can clearly see the four 300B output tubes and four small signal tubes. The top plate is carbon fiber.


Sony SACD Room

Here is the world's first view into the Sony SACD Pavilion! Sony is using five B&W 801 loudspeakers with Pass labs X600 amplifiers. Top that off with B&W's ASW4000 self-powered subwoofer and you have one awesome setup!


Philips SACD 1000 and Marantz SACD Players

Seen in the photo above is the Marantz SA-1 SACD player ($7,500, bottom unit) and the new multi-channel Philips SACD 1000 player/transport (top unit).


Philips SACD 1000 Rear

The Philips SACD 1000 unit provides six channels of analog output as seen in the photo below (right, left, right surround, left surround, subwoofer and center). It also has the standard stereo output, TOSlink and coax digital plus single RCA video out and S-Video output. Sony also has a computer hard disc for source but they are not sure if it will be using it during the demonstration.


Hard Rock Cafe

And there you have it folks. A sneak peek into a small percentage of the goodies Enjoy the Music.com™ will be reporting on during the Las Vegas 2001 show. Tomorrow is the first official day so stay tuned as we are firmly planted across the street from none other than the Hard Rock Cafe! Where else would you expect the Enjoy the Music.com™ headquarters to be? Let the music play!

Enjoy the Music!
