From the article on Stereophile.com:

QUOTE
Appearing in person and each giving presentations lasting 30-minute, will be representatives from Audio Research, Ayre Acoustics, B&W, Classé, Finite Elemente, GoldenEar, Harmonic Resolution, Linn, Meridian, Peachtree Audio, Transparent, and Wilson Audio, while Stereophile editor John Atkinson will be demonstrating the benefits of high-resolution audio and the evils of MP3, using the master files of some of his recordings.

It's this Wednesday, Feb. 9, and while I live about 25 minutes away from Definitive's Seattle showroom, I think I'll manage to avoid that wink.gif - but what am I saying! Of *course* the MP3 vs. high-rez demo will be ABX'ed...
