WELCOME TO THE SHOW! Welcome to the first hotel-based audio show in Sydney for 20 years! If you’ve never attended a show like this, prepare for a whole new experience. There’s very little in the way of ‘exhibition stands’; instead entire floors of the Sheraton on the Park hotel have been emptied of furniture and bedding, the rooms refilled with the world’s best hi-fi and AV equipment, set up and staffed by the manufacturers, distributors and sometimes the designers — these are the people who have all the answers. So you have the opportunity not only to get

OPENING HOURS

all your hi-fi and AV questions answered, but to hear how these superb systems can sound in rooms that approximate a real home (except, perhaps, for the number of visitors...). Don’t miss the free-to-enter competitions, the special zones and events, and your chance to vote for Best Sound Of The Show — the details are all in this Show Guide, together with full floor layouts and room listings. Relax, take your time, don’t stand in front of the speakers when others are listening to them, and ENJOY THE SHOW!

MUSIC & THE NEW HI-FI Roy Bird CHAIRMAN, THE CHESTER GROUP

Isn’t it nice to know that while so many of the things around us are subject to change, music remains essentially the same? Of course there are changing styles, evolving genres, new delivery systems. But at the end of the day, music remains music, and it is one of life’s most beguiling experiences. Where did it all start? Manipulation of the vocal cords, the tapping of a stick on a hollow log, perhaps? We’ll never know. But wherever you go in the world, music underscores life and almost always unites people. Music was a live experience for millennia before the modern world of recording and reproduction took us from wax cylinders and shellac records to the

hard drives and flash-memory devices used today. Now we can transport music wherever we wish, play it at a time to suit us, create a collection tailored to our own tastes. And right now we are at a unique point in time, with a tangible bridge between what I would call ‘static’ systems and ‘portable’ music. Many visitors and exhibitors at the Show will remember the huge demand for hi-fi in the mid-1980s, when every age group could see the appeal of having a separates system as a centrepiece of the home — admired, played and shared. But with the arrival of the internet, digitisation and downloads, a separation occurred based around mobile audio — the Walkman, then the iPod, now the smartphone. There are still many who love their two-channel audio and their surround systems in a domestic location. But many music fans now listen on the move, wanting all their music available

anywhere, at the flick of a switch. Yet how many such listeners understand how good their favourite music can really sound? That’s my point about the ‘bridge’. With the emergence of docking stations, networking devices and all manner of hi-fi with the ability to stream from these mobile devices, music can now easily be elevated to a new level for all these people. Meanwhile traditional two-channel listeners are increasingly aware that hard-drive hi-fi can carry audio beyond CD quality, while of course flick-of-a-switch access can be rather exciting for them, too! All this can only be good for the future of static systems, and perhaps even heralds a new boom in true two-channel audio. At this Show you’ll see audio and AV equipment of fantastic quality. It’s an opportunity to experience not only the sounds, but also how the new breed of hi-fi fits seamlessly into today’s lifestyles, and into a future where music will surely always matter in our lives.

Sonus faber’s loudspeaker masterpiece, the Aida, is one of the most beautiful designs in all of the high-end, an achievement of engineering and craftsmanship that pushes the envelope of loudspeaker design. It’s on display at the Audio & AV Show for the first time ever in Australia — so don’t miss it! Visit Room 603.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

THE CHESTER GROUP Roy Bird CHAIRMAN, THE CHESTER GROUP

The Australian Audio & AV Show is brought to you by the Chester Group, a unique family business, based in the UK but with offices now established in the UK, Florida and Sydney, with plans for more! Although there are many organisers of shows around the world, we are unique through our specialisation in the field of high-end home entertainment and electronics — we organise The National Audio Show in the UK, and The New York Show recently held at the Waldorf Astoria. And, of course, we are proud to be back in Australia for our second year of the Australian Audio & AV Show, here for the first time in Sydney. Our reputation has been built on selecting the very best venues, maintaining our independence in the marketplace, ensuring great value for money, creating strong partnerships with the Media and Exhibitors and, of course, making sure our shows are a unique opportunity to see the very latest products. We create hotel-based shows where the hi-fi and AV can be properly experienced, not simply seen on display at an exhibition stand. We bring together the manufacturers and distributors with the end-users, so that potential customers can ask questions while hearing how good their favourite music can sound on high-quality equipment. That’s what this Show (and all our shows) are about, creating new interest through the wonderful exhibits at these fascinating events. We invite your feedback, new ideas and opportunities, as we look forward to an ongoing program of events here in Australia.

Purchase any Furman Elite 16 or SPR 16 and receive a FREE AC230 for your TV or projector valued at $299rrp.

If you’re listening to your Music System plugged straight into your AC mains socket you are getting more than you paid for. More distortion more compression and more fatigue. Dirty AC power creates a masking effect resulting in loss of detail, dull and muddy bottom end and lifeless mid and high response . With a Furman power conditioner your music is released, detail is restored your music resonates from a noiseless background, bass is tight and defined and stereo imaging is clear and precise. Unmask your speakers - for the ultimate musical performance! For the right advice about getting the best out of your system, talk/visit your Hi-Fi Specialist now – you won’t regret it.

MartinLogan are one of the few true electrostatic manufacturers remaining in the industry. Electrostatic speakers are well known for their accuracy and detail in audio reproduction, and the latest MartinLogan speaker, the Montis, is no exception. Finished in a stunning high gloss black cherrywood veneer, the Montis is truly breathtaking to behold, both visually and acoustically.
