Another room I make it a point to visit is this one. While there was nothing new on the digital hardware front, I've reviewed the dCS Rossini Player & Clock, there was something new (to me) and rather unusual. Roy Gregory of The Audio Beat.com, pictured above, was playing a polycarbonate disc of Beethoven's 9th that retails for $2,000.

I was only able to stay briefly and came in during Roy's presentation but I understand there were comparisons made between polycarbonate and non-polycarbonate, but my thought after listening to a $2k disc was...wow.

Digital System: dCS Rossini Player ($28,499), dCS Rossini Clock ($9995), VTL TL-6.5 Series II Signature Linestage Preamp ($15,000), VTL S-400 Series II Reference Stereo Amp ($33,500), Wilson Audio Yvette speakers ($25,500).
