But I may go next year. I really like going to the show and hanging out in Vegas is pretty cool. We shall see if I go next year. I have never been to CEDIA though. The only other trade show I have been to was NAB. That is almost %100 production equipment(radio and TV stations etc...) and they have some video stuff there but you can't sit at all at that show so I was one and done with that one.
I want to “Be Like Mike” then—to attend a trade show even every other year must be great. Major shows like that sometimes have Segways (sp) for rent (I’ve seen some at some large-scale business conferences). You can cruise the entire floor, and never take a step. Then again, given the volume of attendance at these shows, the few available probably wouldn’t last long. I really think I’m going to try to make CEDIA this year just to oogle at new technology. I’m hoping the Sony VPL1000 gets some cheaper competition this year. So you went to NAB? I’m sure the fllors were filled with $200k cameras. Production equipment makes enthusiast equipment look like downright bargains.

Oh wow….You know what that means! You’ve got to fly overone of these summers (maybe on vacation with the family) and check CEDIA-USA out! Just out of curiosity, have you traveled to the states before?

I must say that I'm very impressed with the progress of your home theater. Very nicely done, my friend!! You must be grinning from ear to ear!
I just wanted to share that the upgrade bug bit me recently too. Seems to happen to all of us this time of year!
Anyway, I purchased a pair of KEF iQ10s so I can make the jump to 7.1 and complete my KEF setup. Also, my eD sub seems to be on its way out (bad purchase decision on my part, considering they are now out of business) making some nasty chirping sounds during heavy LFE scenes. So a new Outlaw LFM-1 EX is on it's way as we speak. I can't wait for it all to come together.
I look forward to your upcoming speaker upgrade. Here's to upgradeitis!!!
Greetings dharel, and thanks for the very kind words. Those are some great upgrades, as you can’t go wrong with KEF’s—these guys have been around for decades. Ahhhh, scooped up an Outlaw LFM? I’m pretty sure the LFM stands for “Low frequency Monster!” lol….Great upgrade. **Lifts glass** Here’s to upgraditis, indeed! May our angry wallets be ever in our favor! Lol

An absolutely AWESOME article HTG. After reading this, I am NOT holding my breath for complete UHD adoption anytime soon. Establishing an entire infrastructure would need to start with, at a minimum, 100% permeation of the professional cinema environment before trickling into home use with the few plausible codecs. I had no idea that UHD was so far off.

Wasn't even planning on fully watching both of them but after putting in TimeScapes to check it out a little I ended up telling my fiance that wed eat dinner at home and ordered a pizza and had a baraka/samsara/Timescapes marathon.
I’ve never heard of Timescapes or Samsara….but Baraka is one of my go-to reference video discs! (A great clip is also on the Superleo demo disc). How do those two compare with Baraka? Pizza and Baraka sound like a perfect evening…..makes me want some Pizza now……and Baraka!

I’ve been an Ht subscriber since ’07—just got my Feb/March issue, but haven’t looked through it yet. I’m going to need to read it today. On par with the VT series? As I recall, Sony came very close to the mark last year with an XBR LCD as well ( I forget the model).

Great video man as always and your enthusiasm is something we are all probably really enjoy watching with the technical details of course. This causes me to also re-think whats next for me maybe some chairs since I need some anyway and dare I say it Crowsons/Amp since you and MikeDuke who I hopefully get a chance to meet at the GTG are enjoying them so much besides the mrs would think I am nuts for adding anymore subwoofers
Lol, that first sentence made me laugh. Lol….the upgrade path never ends! Lol. Man, trust me—if you’re thinking about the Crowsons, your on the path to even MORE theater excellence! The thing is, don’t tell people you own transducers. The look in their faces when they FEEL the vibration—they wondering about where the vibration is coming from. They will simply be that much more engrossed in the film material an action on screen.
