CES 2009 Show Report – Las Vegas

This year factory representatives from Chord Electronics, Spendor and Van den Hul joined Bluebird Music in the Venetian hotel room 31-231. The featured system included the wonderful Spendor S9e speakers with Chord’s awesome new SPM 3350 220 watt integrated amplifier. Adding Chord’s stunning new QBD76 as the source and Van den Hul cables created a system which delivered very fine detail and full harmonic information with a truly natural tonal balance, and an effortless presentation with huge dynamics and deep powerful bass.

Spendor’s new SA1 speakers were on display, and Spendor dealers were treated to a private demonstration of the new flagship Spendor ST speakers. The speakers are now on the way to dealers. New Van den Hul products on display included the new Nova speaker wire, the new Canary cartridge and the new Wave and Platinum interconnects.
