I am listening to a truly mesmerizing album. L'orchestra Di Piazza Vittorio is a sonically immersive album especially suited to our speakers. Listen to it and I am sure you will agree.

Hey Santhosh,
Look like good suggestions, and probably all well worth a listen. But IF I was a betting man, I would bet the Neil Young would tickle my funny bone the most.
Trying to keep up but can't really keep up with you and Bro Anthem.
Keep the great suggestions coming, keep enjoying the tunes.
God Bless.
Wayne
God bless the child that's got his own.

Hi all,

Once again, gone on the road and then to a trade show, so out of communication for a while. This one was called the "CEDIA" Expo - Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association. It's where the home automation and integrators come for trainings, classes and a product expo, sort of like CES but geared toward this part of the industry. At GoldenEar's booth, we demonstrated three (yep, count 'em, three!) systems:

1) 3x HTR-7000 in the ceiling across the front with two MPX in the rear and two ForceField 5 subs. This knocked everyone's socks off because it was so tonally accurate and dynamic and had the ability to make it seem like the sonic presentation was at screen height - within 20-30 seconds most people were convinced they were hearing floorstanding speakers! This system was powered by a NAD T787 receiver and T567 BluRay.

2) Triton Sevens up front with a SuperCenter XL and two SuperSat 3 in the rear with two ForceField 5 subs. The T7 continues to amaze everyone who hears it and for those who have the space for a full-sized center, the new SC XL is amazing. This system was powered by a second NAD T787 receiver with a T567 BluRay.

3) Triton Two in 2-channel stereo. We still have many requests at shows for us to demo the T2 even though it's now been out for three years. So, as is usual for us, we go all out to drive them: An Audio Research Ref CD-9 CD player and a Pass Labs INT-150 integrated amp. Trade shows are notoriously hard places to get good sound, but this system impressed everyone who listened.

OK, so how/why does this relate to the Currently Playing thread? I figured you might ask what material we use to demo the systems. For video, we use a few movie clips, but more importantly we use a great music Blu Ray called "Legends of Jazz" with Ramsey Lewis. I highly recommend it and it's well worth seeking out. There are a lot of great songs on it, but one really hits home to us after a long week of setup/show/teardown... "Mumbles" by Clark Terry. We all feel that we sound like that when talking at the end!

For 2-channel, Sandy has some music stalwarts that he's used over the years to show off his designs. He has a compilation CD that puts many of them on one disc so he doesn't have to constantly change discs during demos. While a few of the tracks change year to year, most stay on the CD. Here's a list of the tracks on Sandy's 2013 2-channel demo CD if you'd care to listen to these tracks on your GoldenEar speakers, too. Track 2 came from a CD Peter Lyngdorf gave to Sandy and we don't have the title or performer's info. I tried both Shazam and Sound Hound to no avail, so I guess you'll have a slightly truncated version of the disc should you look up these tracks.

I've attached two photos of the outside of the booth. It was relatively dark inside and those photos look really poor - maybe it'll be lighter in our rooms at CES and I might get better photos there.

Enjoy!
