Joe;

Your coverage of this show is very impressive, and your write-ups are incredibly detailed. It's the next best thing to being their. I think Sonnie needs to make you the official show correspondent, sending you to every big show in the country. Of course, that means you need to bring back swag for all of us...

Thank you guys - that is very kind of you to say.

I am back home now after another great day. Time to reconnect with the family (they waited for me to get home to start family game night ) and I will continue posting thoughts / impressions a bit later.

I will admit - it would be hard to say no to going to these types of shows. It was a great experience and I got a chance to talk to several wonderful people.

Re: AXPONA 2013 Show Report by Joe Alexander of HTS

I do hope I will not be stepping on anyones toes here, just thought it would be ok to post some additional images of the eye and ear candy from the show. If I have poked my nose on Joe's territory, please feel free to delete as necessary. I wont make too many comments on what I heard as some things just were not so good actually and that should remain in my head. I will show what I feel to be the top 2 of the show in my opinion and then leave the rest as ...well the rest.

Already shown but far and away my favorite of the show, speakers and equipment. Awesome engineering and VW size amplification, I was mesmerized.

If anyone has questions, just ask and I will do my best to answer. I am sure Joe will add his thoughts on further gear.




Good Listening

There was really a tie for second place, both systems were brilliant but just slightly less so than the MBL system above. Check out the tubes in the amplifier below.

The Sony speakers in the first image were very very good. The rest of the photos depict some wonderful equipment with musical reproduction ranging from great to good. I cannot completely judge the equipment as I think some of the rooms just did not work. The big disappointment was the static Martin Logans, they would not play them for me.

Thanks for the pics Jack... I suspect Joe may cover some of those as well and will have some comments on them.

You are so right Jim... and I have already told him that we may end up hiring him to cover all the shows for us. This is the best show coverage I have ever seen.

Again, sorry I missed you Jack - would have been great to meet up. Next year!

And, stop it - you are making me blush.

So, I am going to finish up Friday's visits first. After that, I am going to just go randomly and will make sure to post when I visited.

Re: AXPONA 2013 Show Report by Joe Alexander of HTS

I do hope to meet you at some point Joe, it would have been nice this year but it was very crowded and actually somewhat complicated just to get from the parking garage to the hotel. No signs or directions found anywhere.
None the less, this was a good show, everyone was very nice, I dont think we met any negative people the whole day, even as they wore down as the show continued. Hope the next one is soon.

Good Listening

Jack
