    Default Photos from the 2006 Hong Kong High-End Audio-Visual Show (56K users - beware)

    Like last year, I've gathered some photos from the 2006 Hong Kong High-End Audio-Visual Show and posted them at stevehoffman.tv. It's only the first day as of this post but looks like plenty to see already.

    My humble Arros just sensed a disturbance in the Force:D

    Could the McIntosh pre-amp(s) be any sexier?

    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    I hate to say it but, amidst / compared to all that gear, Polk Audio's stuff (post #23) looks lame :(
    Better to have and not need than to need and not have!

    I don't know, I didn't see anything that really turned me on except for the Dennon model. Maybe I'm just in a weird mood or something...
