I spent the last five days in Las Vegas covering the Consumer Electronics Show for Stereophile magazine. My job was to report on the show as I saw it, to offer an outsider’s perspective on a very tightly-knit community of enthusiasts. I’m not an audiophile, but I do understand passion, and what was most present at the show was the love of music.
If you’re interested, you can find my daily reports here. Also check out the coverage offered by my friends and colleagues, Jon Iverson, Wes Phillips, and John Atkinson. These are some of the classiest, most intelligent and kind dudes I know. I felt very lucky to get to spend some time with them.
And Vegas: wow. That town is a total craptacularly appalling and gorgeous mess.
