Ear-dazzling sounds at the New York Audio Show

The Audiophiliac was treated to the very best sound at the show held last weekend in New York.

The Wilson Alexia speakers and Dan D'Agostino electronics in the Innovative Audio room at the New York Audio Show stopped me in my tracks. I heard a lot of great gear at the show, but the sound in that room was closer -- a lot closer -- to the sound of the real thing than anything else. The system had a "this is happening now" quality that takes you back to the recording session, proof that cutting edge high-end gear is getting better all the time. Yes, ubergear prices are in the stratosphere, but there were plenty of affordable components, speakers, and headphones at the show. I listened to as many as I could, and will review some of them in the coming months in my blog.
