Audio & AV Show 2017

the little audio company will be exhibiting at the newly branded National Audio Show (previously held in Northamptonshire) in Birmingham this weekend (16th/17th Sept). The venue will be the ICC and the 7th floor of the Hyatt Hotel just across the road, both situated in Broad Street, near the Symphony Hall. The show runs from 10am-5pm on Saturday, and 10am-4pm on Sunday.

Despite these venues being visible from the little audio company's premises, we will be exhibiting at the show.

Our participation in this show has been a last minute thing, so we will be keeping things simple. Also, there'll be plenty of higher end goodies present, so we'll be showing something a little more attainable and 'neat'. The main focus will be the KEF LS50 Wireless loudspeakers (hopefully set up to perfection!) on the newly designed, yet to be released Custom Design LS50 Wireless stands with an Innuos ZENith II media server as a digital source for the most part. The possible talking point of the system may be the Elipson Omega 100 RIAA BT Carbon turntable, which will be using its onboard phono stage to convert to a line level signal, with the resulting signal being sent via Bluetooth to the LS50 Wireless - wireless vinyl!

I'm toying with a few things with regards to music - for the most part, and for convenience, the Innuos will be providing CD quality and hi-res streaming, with an "on the hour, every hour" run with vinyl for 15-20 minutes, or maybe alternate between digital and analogue every half hour. Decisions decisions...
