    While not the typical 2 channel setup found in most rooms at AXPONA, I'll again have a huge ballroom (other end of the lobby level) with a full Dolby Atmos setup with some massive subwoofer stacks that make for great pictures, especially with shorter folks standing next to an 8' tall subwoofer tower.

    For the videophiles we will have Sony's VW5000ES projector fed with a few 4K/UHD sources through a Lumagen Radiance Pro on a 14' wide, microperf Stewart Screen with Ken Whitcomb of Calibrations Inc insuring it looks as good as possible. We are in the section of the ballroom behind the marketplace on the main floor. Please come by and take a break off your feet for a few or use our room as an easy meeting place with others. It's always fun to see the reach of the forums and who makes it to the various shows, so be sure to say hello and mention you are a member of the forum.

    Having seen this exact combo in a customer's theater and experience with the VW5000ES in multiple cases now, this should be a great example of what is possible within the limits of how dark they let us get the room. This laser powered Sony is currently one of the best options to get both bright and black at 4k resolution right now. It should be a fun weekend.

    For those of you who even have a low level of interest in "home theater", don't miss Mark Seaton's room. Even if HT is not your "cup of tea", I think it will be fun for you to see what is possible with highly dynamic speakers, subs that go well into the single digits, and will play at levels that are as "realistic" as you could wish - without any kind of strain or distortion.
    “Audio as a hobby is dying, largely by its own hand. As far as the real world is concerned, high-end audio lost its credibility during the 1980s, when it flatly refused to submit to the kind of basic honesty controls (double-blind testing, for example) that had legitimized every other serious scientific endeavor since Pascal. [This refusal] is a source of endless derisive amusement among rational people and of perpetual embarrassment for me” - Gordon Holt
