This was a superb show with great performing artists such as the Blue Organ Trio, pictured on this page.
This was the first show in Chicago since the 1999 Stereophile show. Thousands descended upon the Doubletree hotel adjacent to O'Hare airport to experience the best in high performance audio. The marketplace expo was assisted by Music Direct.
The standout showroom was "hands down" the Von Schweikert room featuring the new VR-100 XS Universe speaker with KR Audio's Kronzilla.
Sonically, it was hard to beat the United Home Audio and Jolida room featuring reel to reel tape and the MBL 116 loudspeaker.
Aesthetically, no room could compare to the Classic Audio Loudspeaker, Purist Audio Design, Atma Sphere and Triplanar room. The sound here was concert like and the loudspeakers were simply gorgeous.
