                  I was able to spend Saturday at THE show, and was tremendously impressed at the wide assortment of music and video equipment that you could see in one day.

                  Every company reformed their hotel rooms into demo rooms. This is not as easy as you might think, as some of these $100,000 systems need specific room conditioning to perform at their best.

                  Hugh needed to be complimented on how his relatively inexpensive speakers competed with the big boys with their mega set-ups.

                  Hugh was clever, and rented a suite. He took the sofa and easy chairs and re-arranged them to simulate a comfy home theater setup.

                  While most of the rooms were audio only, Hugh had set a 60" flat screen on the repurposed chest of drawers, covered it with a dark cloth, and voila...home theater.

                  His suite was right across the hall from the corporate sponsored high dollar Magnapan motorized speaker setup, backed up with a gazillion dollar amp and connected with cables the size of small fire hoses. Hugh's system sounded twice as good, with a better sound stage, and all done by one man on a mission.

                  Cannot tell how much I was impressed by his set-up and the end results.

                    Magnepan makes an extremely good speaker. If the Trinities can compete with those, then that's an extremely high complement.

                    Good job Hugh :applause:

                      Got a chance to go to THE Show this past Sunday. Personally I thought it was real hard to gauge the performance of the gear that was being presented. Every room was different, some used room treatments others didn't. The music being played also varied from room to room, and it was being played at different volume levels as well. Anyhow you guys get the idea.

                      Kudos to Hugh and his nicely setup demo room. Im definitely more of a home theater type of guy so I can really appreciate the room he had. Thanks Hugh, it was nice seeing you again. :)

                      Here's a couple of pics I took of the ultra expensive stuff they had there. Enjoy.

                        Thanks for all the pictures! What are those crazy looking red speakers near the middle? I'm familiar with everything else pictured here but I don't believe I've ever seen or heard those.

                              Agreed....Hugh's room sounded great.

                              I never did figure out who I needed to sleep with to get into the Magnepan room. After a couple of people, I gave up.
