The New York Audio Show 2014 was located at the Marriot at the Brooklyn Bridge hotel this past weekend (September 26-28), and while it wasn't the biggest event of the year, it was a lot of fun. The crowds were big enough to keep the energy high, and the mix of affordable and sky's-the-limit speakers, headphones, electronics, turntables and digital gear was impressive.

There were no seismic shifts in the landscape, but the continuing boom market in turntables, music servers, headphones, and high-end speakers isn't abating. Audiophiles' insatiable cravings for LPs and high-resolution digital is still in full force, but no one mentioned Neil Young's soon-to-be-released portable Pono music player and download store.
