Leo Yeh (MyHiend.com) is the Lucky Luke of photographers: he shoots fast at anything that stands or moves (and not just hifi, if you catch my drift...), from any angle and perspective, immersing the viewer in the location as if it were there.
JVH and Leo have made a gentleman's agreement and Hificlube will publish some selected photos of Leo's CES 2014 report to illustrate the written information, like press releases (box on the right above).
The report also includes some photos courtesy of Ricardo Franassovici (Absolute Sounds)

The general media couldn't care less for High Performance Audio. But with Sony hopping on the Hi-Res bandwagon there was a lot of interest at the conference held at the Venetian moderated by Alex Pham (Billboard Magazine) and the presence of Mark Piibe (Sony Music), Norman Chesky (HD Tracks), Cookie Marenco (Blue Coast Music), C. Jared Sacks (Native DSD Music), Jim Belcher (Universal), Chad Kassem (Acoustic Sounds), Mark Waldrep (i Trax.com). Photo courtesy R.Franassovici (Absolute Sounds)
