RMAF 2017 – The Music

I’m constantly looking for new music and I’ve found shows to be a great place to do some recon. Amidst the Eagles and Eva Cassidy filled hallways, there are some gems to be heard. To properly demonstrate their gear, vendors tend to select the best recordings they could get their hands on. That said, there’s no…


RMAF 2017 – Best Sounds of Show

I had plenty of favorites from the show. These were some of the standout components in the various categories. I enjoyed them for different reasons and wanted to give them some recognition. In no particular order: Speakers Verity Audio Lohengrin IIS speakers ($133,000) – No other system performed the disappearing speaker act better than Verity…


RMAF 2017 – Grand Show Report

We covered 99% of the rooms at RMAF…but first Denver… My favorite drug starts with the letter “W.” It ain’t what you’re thinking.

The 2017 Los Angeles Audio Show held at the Sheraton Gateway was very well organized. Driving to the venue from Downtown LA wasn’t bad at all at 10 am. Parking was a breeze. Check-in was easy, the event booklet was helpful, and there was even signage on the elevator doors to direct you to some…


Los Angeles Audio Show 2017 – Day 0

Less than 12 hours to go… That Von Schweikert Ultra 11 sounded incredible.


SoCal CanJam 2017!

Impressions under show conditions are subjected to a giant bag of salt. That said, here were my major takeaways from the show: BEST OF SHOW: The 64 Audio Tia Fourte The best IEM I’ve ever heard (and I’ve heard most of the flagships from other vendors). It even sounds more fluid and natural than most…
