Enjoy the Music Dot com  Review of the 2000 CES

The Best Product from Down Under, and one of my favorite systems in the show, was from Osborn Loudspeakers. Greg Osborn was demonstrating their towering Monument speaker, which weighs in at 275 lbs. It was powered by Audio Aero electronics, including the Capitole 50W Class A push-pull stereo amp. This system had a great sense of effortless and aliveness, with full-range, neutral reproduction. It was a pure pleasure to listen to. By show's end, it just missed being ranked in the top five systems in the show. Log on to www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au or check out the Australian Audio website (the North American importer) at www.nuviewaudio.com.

The Most Visible New CD Player in the show was from Audio Aero of France. Their components showed up in some very good systems. The Capitole CD player uses 24 bit/192 kHz re-sampling technology and an analog subminiature tube output stage. Try www.audioaero.com
