Show Report – A Visit to The 2022 New York Audio Show, Part One

The New York Audio Show returned after a bit of a break, and it was nice to get back to a local event I had attended for the first time in 2017. It was NYAS that inspired me to fly to Colorado for one of the last Rocky Mountain Audio Fests. RMAF was huge with many rooms, and even with a two-day stay, I was unable to see everything. The recent New York show at Manhattan’s Martinique Hotel on Friday September 9th was a very different affair: 15 systems could be evaluated and revisited in a single day.

Back and Revitalized: T.H.E. Show 2022 Part Two

One of the first audio shows I attended after what is hopefully the end of the pandemic was T.H.E. Show 2022 held at the Hilton Long Beach Hotel in California in June.

Review – Morphée Sleep Aid

To sleep, perchance to dream – or to meditate, with Morphée!
Sleep is big business these days. It’s one of the basic needs we all have in common, yet something we never seem to get enough of. One of the least invasive and time-tested methods for preparing one’s mind for sleep is meditation. 
Morphée is an innovative device that brings meditation right into your bedroom, or anywhere you’re wishing to fall asleep. Especially since it’s non-digital!

Show Report – CES 2022: A Different Kind of Show

CES 2022 struck me as an example of “on the other hand.” What I mean by this, is that fellow Mac Edition Radio editor Nancy Burlan and I debated attending CES. On the positive side, she hadn’t been to Las Vegas in years (apart from our numerous visits at the Las Vegas Airport) so we thought it would be fun for her to experience the conference. On the other hand, we had the very real and pervasive fear of catching COVID. Show organizers CTA (Consumer Technology Association) assured CES attendees that everyone involved - workers, attendees, and exhibitors - all needed to show proof of vaccination. Read our full report to learn more.

Ten Observations From CES 2022

If possible, this year's CES was even stranger than last year's—mainly because it was blended/hybrid instead of all digital. There were plenty of things to talk about regarding CES 2022, but John Mulhern III will stick to the technical ones for this article.
