I want to send a warm 'Mult Mesc' to everyone who visited my demonstration at Hifi Arena in Bucuresti, Romania this last weekend.

I felt very welcome, and really enjoyed people's amazingly positive attitude there.
From an exhibitors point of view i had the impression that the visitors were very well informed and serious. Highly competent questions were asked, and the rate of interest was well above what i had expected.

I must admit that we did not have the best sound on the exposition, in my opinion that competion was won by either Audio Note, or Symphonic Line (Germany) playing the absolutely stunning Visonik loudspeakers (also from Germany). Which of those two had the best sound would - i guess - depend on the type of music played. I had the great luck of meeting Peter Quortrup from Audio Note, and got some really inspiring chats during the weekend. He is IMO not only one of the world's great audio designers, but also has a completely rediculously good sense of humor. I must repeat one of his remarks during the expo dinner:

I was telling our rep i Romania, Victor Catona from Cores SA, that outside of Timisoare was a roadwork, where they had cut away one lane of the already narrow and dark road and with only scarce marking and almost no warning they had dug a hole so deep, that it was impossible to see the bottom. Even when driving only centimeters from the edge.
And so Peter Quortrup's prompt remark was: well that is because the Romanians are now so thorough that they start to rebuild the road all the way from the core of the earth.

On our stand we played Predator and an upgraded Pioneer CD player with our own Teflon cables. The loudspeakers were some for me unknown brand from Lithuania, presented by our hosts from Cores. Unfortunately in the price range of only 250 US per loudspeaker, and designed for a surround system. Therefore it was really a hard task to generate true high end sound. It didn't go all bad though, and the ones with better sound did after all cost 4 - 10 times more than our system.

Frankly i will rate this exposition one of the best i have ever attended, and i will definitely be there next year, and with our own loudspeakers. Also I can warmly recommend other brands to attend the exposition in Bucharest, Romania.
Contact for the exposition management is: Sorina Muresan tel. +40 212243677.

Woaha, and I wasn't there... Nice to hear you liked it there, as about the roads, your only chance as of now, is to get used to them. And say thanks for having no problems with the traffic cops(gabori).

But anyway, cu placere

That's true, hehe. But I had some very bad experiences(since I can't stand corruption it was pretty hard to discuss with them).
But that's me, many others are luckier.

Hi Lars

What products did you demostrate at Hi-Fi Arena? I seem to have missed the Cores stand, I only stayed for two hours or so since I had to leave back the same day I arrived. I would've liked to hear you ZAPPulse amp, in case you demoed it too.

push_pull: we did indeed play the ZAPpulse / Predator amplifier.

roibm: I can only respect your reservations about the police corruption. It only shows that you Romanians are a very honest and respectable people. I have many romanian friends, and i can say i have never met a romanian that could not be trusted 100%.
About the cop corruption it's starting to be much much better now than it was 3 years ago when i visited Romania last time.
I didn't have any problems at all on this trip. Not even at the border.

Only one taxi driver in Bucuresti overcharged me with 500.000 Lei for a 3 km trip. (About 10 Euro). The same trip in Alba Iulia next day cost only 8900 Lei (About 15 Euro Cent or 20 US Cent) - the right price in Romania.
I hope the guy in Bucuresti had a nice dinner with his girlfriend out of my 500.000 Lei ;-)

That's well known. In bucharest I mean.
I don't really know how it is nowadays but in the past they used to charge $30-50 for a ride from the airport into the city. Needless to say that's a huge amount for some 15 Km.
As about alba, that's my county(judet), and there is a huge difference between this county(and in general, transilvanian counties) and bucharest(especially when it comes to fairness). One sick thing about the bucharest's people is that most of them think we are really stupid for being fair(and not overcharging when possible etc.) This alone was also the reason for leaving romania(temporarly). I could have gotten a very well paid job(for romania, 1000+ eur) when I left, but that could have happened only in bucharest and I hate that city and most of it's people. So here I am, and no plan to stay much longer, but then again, I wanna see what happens with rosia montana and who wins the elections.
