I'll start.

I was there Friday and Saturday. I didn't take too many pics because I was a bit distracted by seeing folks I haven't seen in at least a decade. I had a good time, both listening and visiting.

Noticed quite a few homos there. Who else was there?

Best sound, IMO was the $25k Martin Logan Renaissance. Last two pics, with the Macs. These are next for me. They're replacing their entire line with this new x-stat design of theirs, top to bottom at about every $5,000 price points.

Surprisingly, the worst expensive sound at the show was the $558,000 MBL system. Hugely colored and an absolute imaging mess. Part of the imaging floating in space (as it should be) and a duplicate of that image hanging on the face of the speaker. Too bad as these are visually stunning (first two pics) and I really want to like them.

There was a cheap set of $32,000 MBLs down in LL in the Jolida room that did very nicely.
