And now, the show stats you've all been waiting for:
-There are many beautiful women at HE2006.
-These women work for the convention.
-These women don't live in LA, but are imported from Boston by the convention organizers.
-They don't know the difference between a KT88 tube and a 300B.
-They don't know the difference between a tube and a transistor.
-No matter how big your speakers are, they're not going home with you to hear them.
-Audiophiles really freak them out.
-Audiophile journalists freak them out even more.
-They have walkie talkies to call security.
For that guy that came up to me yesterday and said, "SonicFlare! I love your site! But you need more women!" Well, there you go. We'll try to get some pictures and serious interviews with the eye-gropped hostages about audio and what they think of this craziness. All in the name of advancing the cause, right?
