A number of rooms had power issues that had to be fixed by the hotel. In one case they provided 240 instead and blew the poor guy's electronics! Here is how they fixed the above room:

The local inspector I am sure would "card" (fine) them if they saw this!

I mean what are they thinking? In one case I was told they only had 6 amps available before the breaker would blow. Any hair dryer would cause that to happen. I guess running an audio show is one way to find your hotel power issues!

Duende by Bozzio Levin Stevens. https://shz.am/t10131713

A bit boomy but reference quality otherwise. Excellent dynamics!

This was on LP. Great ambience and dynamics.

The sidelit woofers show turntable rumble very easily as they modulate back and forth. Someone asked what it was in the audience. Interesting that so much "jitter" goes on in analog but folks have not witnessed it objectively. Fortunately it is low frequency and harmless.

As you can see, there was a ton on display. This is the first audio show where Harman itself has such a presence as opposed to being in dealer suites.

Indeed, a very impressive Harman, etc., presence!
