While most of us mark March 20th as the beginning of spring, I mark the Salon Son & Image Expo (SSI or Montreal Hi-Fi show) the beginning of spring. What better way to start off the warm and fresh season with the sweet sound of music and movies? The Hilton Hotel Bonaventure will be hosting the 26th annual SSI Expo from March 21st until the 24th in downtown Montreal, and AVSForum will be there covering the show.
Although the show is mainly based on 2ch audio products, all Home Theater gear presented at the expo will be covered. One interesting aspect of the show that will be covered on the 2ch audio aspect of things is that most of the exhibitors in addition to presenting their reference system will also present a more affordable system under $ 5000. We expect to see and hear some of the best systems anywhere between $ 1,500 and $ 5,000. For anyone looking at starting into 2ch audio with a smaller budget, this will surely be an interesting read.
The SSI Expo will also have two live performers as well as free workshops. Thursday March 21nd, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., is reserved for the people working in the consumer electronics industry and for the media. This day provides a more relaxed visit and is the day to conduct business. At 5pm, cocktails will be served, and you can mingle with other industry professionals. During the industry reception, Salon Son et Image will proudly present the Lifetime Achievement award to an individual who has made exceptional contributions to the consumer audio video industry in Canada.
