Someone should cover the cost of Joe's note pads, or he has a mind like a steel trap. Great read all the way thru.

Thanks!

One suggestion that was made was to take a picture of the room number before going into the room - that way, I will not lose track of what was in each room. Like this one!

One of my tasks before the next show is to create a checklist for myself so that I make sure to get all the info I can. I am thinking about creating a short list of tracks -portions of them anyway - and save them to a USB stick so that I can listen to the same stuff across different systems.

I really enjoyed reading your coverage of this show, it was a nice diversion from my normal daily routine. Very, very good job my friend.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

A great read indeed and excellent job of reporting. Sonnie, you might want to lock Joe up with a long term contract so we don't lose him to another team.

Ha... we have planted a device on him that with the press of a button it can cause him great pain if he bails.

Besides... he loves us too much and we love him too.

Thanks Jim! After reading the depth in your reviews, I figured I had better do a good job or else....

Thanks Jeff! Hmmmm..... I wonder if there is a free agency signing period. Something tells me I will just get the franchise tag!

OK, now that just creeped me out! Besides, I can't go - all the plants will die (virtual high five to the person that can place that quote from a movie!)

Well, true, but that would just not have made any sense - you guys would have thought I had an imaginary friend and there are no good ends to that!

However, virtual high five since you obviously know!

Re: AXPONA 2013 Official Show Report Discussion Thread

Awesome report Joe

As others have already mentioned this is some of the best show coverage I have seen on a website, I really enjoyed it and can't wait for future coverage.

I really don't have anything to add in which you can improve on, it was all good for me. I really appreciated all the pictures, list of components and the review of the room. Maybe the best advice would be to keep it the same, sometimes adding more does not necessarily make it better. I do notice some online magazines have begun putting video interviews of the sales person talking about the product. I personally don't like that as generally it is boring so maybe don't add that to your list of things to do. I much more preferred your pics, components list and thoughts to any online interview from CES.

You really brought the show to life for those who could not be there, thank you for that.
