Was going to post last night. Then AJ dragged me off a mile's walk to a non-existent restaurant and when we got back I collapsed for the night. AJ's fault!

Have heard lots of great gear, have 25 reports to write so far, and I will get started while munching on some dinner.

These are the rooms I have spent quality time in, in the order visited, and will write about starting now.
  • Soundfield Audio (AJ's speakers) - AJ vs. gravity; gravity won; great job anyway, AJ! The man has class!
  • Legacy Audio - serious BIG monopoles.
  • German Physics, AIX Records - surround recordings, immersive speakers.
  • Scaena Speakers - big linear array.
  • Purist Audio Design - midrange horn with grab power.
  • Acoustic Zen Speakers - oneness of sound.
  • Tyler Acoustics - FUN speakers.
  • KEF - nice little speakers... well, the big ones are nice, too.
  • Dynaudio - perfect?
  • Wilson Audio - perfect?
  • Wilson Audio - "budget" model.
  • MartinLogan - reminded why I am such a fan!
  • MartinLogan - ditto.
  • Horning Hybrid Systems - lively!
  • Magico - saved by an attentive rep.
  • Focal - they can even play CDs!
  • Dynaudio - yeah, I just can't help myself.
  • to be named later - sounds like vinyl.
  • Baltic Speakers - serious fun!
  • JTR Speakers - Caterpillar or Mercedes?
  • Endeavor Audio - And She Was.
  • Daedalus Audio - "Engage!"
  • Vapor Audio - do no harm - as in they can't.
  • Madison Fielding - plant stands that SING!
Reports to follow in the Official Report thread...

  • Wharfdale - soundstage value of the show.
  • McIntosh - yeah, they make speakers, too.
  • Vienna Acoustics - natural sound.
  • Audio Physic - natural sound.
  • Seaton Sound - goosebumps.

Re: AXPONA 2014 Official Show Report Discussion Thread

Apologies on not getting more done from the show itself. Traveled without laptop because of a sore back, and the Android tablet approach was problematic.

Working on writeups now.
