Just when we were starting to narrow down candidates for Sound of the Show, along comes another amazing room: YG Hailey loudspeakers driven by Air Tight electronics with vinyl played by an Air Tight cartridge on an SME-armed Transrotor ZET-3 turntable.
When we went in, they were playing Stevie Ray Vaughan’s album Couldn’t Stand the Weather and it was spell-binding. An acoustic image with holographic detail and a sense of realism that made the hairs on your neck stand up. Wow. The Tokyo International Audio Show continues to impress.
