Andrew Everard:

There is, of course, the chance JD may have been winding you up, gel...

EDIT: But Naim UnitiServe - Oooo...

Mmmm. Hence the carrots remark.

Mind you JDs post seems to have had the desired effect....

A slim chance, perhaps.

Yes - chatted with a NaimNet man for a long time. Didn't understand a word of it, but it looks as cute as a whole bagful of buttons.

The only thing I inferred from the Pioneer room is that they aren't going to be doing any more multi-channel gear. I'd put good money on the current line up being the last they come out with.

EDIT: And I lose, apparently...

As for what I saw, I went Friday and I saw Ms. Newsome's dress, after that I couldn't see anything, MY EYES, IT BUUURRNNNNNSSSSS!!!!

Very interesting post the_lhc so do you think pioneer are still in big trouble by your post then? No more multi-channel gear - what is that anyway?

Did you buy anything? Was the 3D stuff any good?

Thanks

EDIT: everything I said previously is wrong, Pioneer, just aren't making their 2010 announcements until later in the year, which is a shame. Still it means I can wait even longer before I upgrade the amp...

Did you buy anything?

Couple of bits, I've mentioned the cartridge elsewhere, other than that a 180g vinyl of Johnny Cash at San Quentin and a pack of 50 anti-static inner sleeves [JD] oooOOOoooo [/JD].

Was the 3D stuff any good?

Don't know, didn't see any of it, my friends queued up for the 2pm demo but didn't get in, I had to meet the other half at 2, so I didn't get the chance to see it.

I did see the SIM demo of the MICO 50. Have to admit I wasn't that blown away by it, the original HD demo WHF did a few years back was more impressive, however they didn't have the Paradigm Sub 2. SIM did. They had two of them! OMFG that was frickin' AWESOME! I was giggling like a schoolboy in sex ed during the Terminator Salvation scene. Massive, massive deep bass without a hint of distortion, boom, bloom, whatever you want to call it, seriously good. But then at 7 grand and 4,500W each you'd hope so...

Hmm, I understood WHF where using LG 3dTVs for the demo. I didn't see it anyway so I couldn't tell you.

there is a sammy there too , according to their show info , on the site homepage , the lg tvs have been seen already , they used them in the pubs showing the man utd game last month , they use the passive system , regular style 3d glasses , the samsungs use the shutter glasses , potentially better , and theres little info on the web as to how they rate , hence my interest ...

Yes, we have a 46in Samsung 3D TV on the outside wall of the demo room, which visitors can view using a pair of active 3D glasses, and inside the dem room is a pair of 47in LG 3D TVs using passive glasses.

The closest I got to the demo was a brief chat with Mr Lucas whilst he changed the time of the first demo to 11:30 because the TVs had only turned up at five to ten...

I didn't introduce myself, he looked stressed out enough as it was.

That's a pity, the_lhc, it would've been nice to say hello - now I'm wracking my brains trying to remember who you were.

And I wasn't especially stressed, that's just my face (and demeanour).

best bit for me was over at Marantz, seeing MR Ken Ishiwata's content face as he was playing with his cd player and amp, which i might add sound out of this world.

I disagree - I thought the two-channel stuff they were playing was quite good (including some quite nice-looking - from an unexpected source anyway - floorstanders), and their AV kit looks stunning as always.

No arguments on the way the AV kit looks.

Friday morning, just after ten, you came out to change the time of the first demo to 11:30, two chaps standing around the clock queried it and you said the TVs had only just turned up. I was seated between them, filling in my competition form. That's why I didn't say hello, I didn't realise it was you until I'd finished scribbling on the form and looked up just as you were walking away. I thought it was a bit late to start shouting your name at that point!

And I wasn't especially stressed, that's just my face (and demeanour).

You were quite jolly as it happens, that was just my little joke (but Chrome won't do the smileys...).

gel:I simply said it would not surprise me not "would", because he seemed upset.

Who me? No, I was just making a dispassionate observation. One that was completely wrong granted, but there was no real emotion attached to it.
