The Baseball Cap Diaries

Introducing the Official 1998 SoundStage! Baseball Cap. Not available in stores, not available on the Net, and not available anywhere except for right here in Las Vegas. You will be able to buy your own later in 1998, but for right now sit back and watch as the Cap makes its rounds in Vegas - the #1 high-end audio show on earth.
Steven R. Rochlin, famed Internet personality, SoundStage! writer and all-round great guy. Steven gets a thumbs up for bringing the world the very first coverage ANYWHERE from CES '98. Steven's part of our show report, and as well is producing his own version as he has in previous years. Visit Steve's site at http://top.monad.net/~enjoythemusic.
