T.H.E. Show 2022 Podcast: First Impressions with Editor-in-Chief, Ian White

Two very different high-end loudspeakers caught our attention from Boenicke and DeVore Fidelity on day one of The Home Entertainment Show, Long Beach, CA.

Common Wave Hi-Fi and Alma Music are two S. California-based dealers who brought some very interesting high-end audio components and loudspeakers to T.H.E Show 2022 in Long Beach, California. EIC Ian White spent some time with the DeVore Fidelity O/baby and Boenicke W8 Loudspeakers in two very different sounding systems that showcased what is right and wrong about the high-end audio space right now.
