Toga.......Thanks so much for posting these photos. Very interesting to see the TAD Reference One's and the JBL Everest's side by side.

Thanks for the pictorial tour, Toga. Lots of gear with no person in sight. Was this just before it was open to the public?

Glad you like it.
I didn't go there and never will, I am too far away.
one thing I always noticed from any shows in Japan is that, they don't use beefy an expensive speaker cables during the demo.
There are one speakers that I really love to try in my home, they are JBL DD67000 !!
as my very first hi-fi speakers were JBL L100t.

That looks like a great show with a lot of mega brands.

Accuphase is proudly represented I see.

Nagra is presenting its DAC and using the same setup as the Paris show. I just don't understand why they demonstrate the SS stereo amp and not some tube monoblock (the 300b was on a shelf in Paris).
