    Good idea Dome...

    Can you say wow?! Many of those individual speakers I've seen before... but to see a wall of unfamiliar JBLs is really something else.

    Smile Two things

    Well, I saw two things I actually own: the 4430s and the Creatures. I couldn't believe that GT was taking his time to peruse them (the Creatures).

    I saw a couple of things I wish I owned, too. It looks like there's K2 S9800s on every block.

    Alive and well

    Nice to see concentrated examples of high end audio. You could spend weeks in that area alone.

    Question Ken

    That Westlake looks like a Tower Series HR-7, almost.

    I think the HR-7 has a super tweeter in it though. So... :dont-know

    Too bad you have to go to Tokyo to see JBL's good stuff on display.

    What a great photo documentary, Don. You must be thrilled to be along on the trip...A nice tribute and nod to the Lansing Heritage Site.

    Killer that there's a mini in black paint with the white JBL logo painted on, a'la Cabaret.

    I can't imagine the market for audio over there. Does EVERYONE have a mid-fi or better system?

    (As in, not like us Americans with our Coby/Insignia kits )

    speechless

    SPEECHLESS! I guess the market for biger speakers or cabs even money is no problem overseas. I saw some jbl speakers I never seen or heard of.I am at my desk at work just shaking my head- speechless. I saw some jbl speaker I would love to have, two of them are studio speakers and of course jbl-9800. here on the east coast all the hi end stereo stores sale what they want to sale and what they think they can make a profit on. not giving the consumer a choice . even if they had such a place on the east coast were you can see and hear all of jbl speakers would be nice, even though I could not afford them.They say its nothing like home but some times you have to leave your own country to see whats in your own back yard . awesome pictures

    'wow' is right! I can't stop looking at those pics. I lightened up a few in order to see the details and hidden stuff. very cool.

    Does anyone know what kind of amp is in the K2 room with GT? At first I thought it was an old HK Citation but now I'm not so sure. I can see what looks like green script and the heat sinks look like a Citation's- the front doesn't look like an XX, though...just curious.

    O.K., so where's the Mini 4430s?

    [Or are they a LHF "Exclusive".... ]

    Brought a tear to my eye...

    Reminded me of when you could go into audio shops back in the day and see a large selection of gear/speakers to pick from in front of you!

    Oh, quit complaining... you get a better selection than we do... well at least from JBL Consumer. JBL PRO still brings down the walls at home though!
