The 2012 Show

T.H.E. Show Newport Beach was a happening event!

Imagine the best audio equipment in the world, the coolest cars and great live music all together at a single show.  Top that off with a Margarita from the Atrium's pool area bar and you have the stuff memories are made of.

Presented by Richard Beers and the Los Angeles/ Orange County Audio Society, this year's T.H.E. Show was the best ever.

The exhibit rooms were packed with exotic equipment that made the music come to life.  To sit in the sweet spot of these super systems is truly incredible. 

The stand out rooms featured loudspeakers from YG Acoustics, Magico, Wilson, Voxativ, Acoustic Zen and Quintessence.

Numerous product launches like the KT Audio Imports Triangle Art Tonearm dazzled the attendees. 

For the first time in the US, listeners got to hear and experience the Gauder Akustiks loudspeakers.  Plus, listeners were treated to the flagship speakers from both YG Acoustics and Magico!  That's right, the YG Sonja and the Magico Q7 battled it out in the same hotel.

On to the awards... 
Achieving best sound at a show is no easy task.  The systems are set up the day before and the rooms offer unknown sonics.

When a room produces excellent sound it's a combination of the equipment and the personnel.  When a company or product wins continuous awards there is a reason...

Congrats to these winners- they deserve it!
