Bangkok, the City of Angels in the
Land Of Smiles - Thailand ... with lots of
live bands serenading people, some complete with dancers, one would think it as a City of Music as
well. A "happening" place, vibrant, pulsating, bacchanal if one wishes.
While we were there for other reasons, we might
as well share some show photos with our website visitors who might find them
Vinyl playback is truly alive and thriving in
Bangkok, and the show sponsors were committed in promoting analog. They set up an event called "Live-On-Stage,
Vinyl Never Die", with a stage and presenters, where the sonic virtues of vinyl
were expounded on and demonstrated. And there were many rooms with
turntables set up.
We do agree that in general it's not the
most expensive that sounds best. But in this show, our votes for best
sonics go to the more expensive systems. Likewise, there were some
outstanding lower-cost systems that did themselves proud over more expensive
offerings. Unfortunately, in our excitement, we were unable to take
photos of what we thought was the best budget system in the show,
amplification made in Thailand.
And now, on with the show ...
