2014 Axpona
 

Might as well start a thread on this now.......

Anyone going?

Any sponsors on HTS going? If so, what do you plan to demo?

One of these days, when work slows down ( HAH!) I might try to attend one of these shows, esp. in the Midwest like this one.........

I would be going, but my son made a club baseball team this year and that happens to be their first tournament weekend so I cannot make it. I am pretty sure Wayne is going - not sure beyond that...

Sorry to hear that Joe, was looking forward to seeing you there, maybe sampling some local brew.

cheers

I'll be there - only a few miles from my house - so a no brainer. Last year was fantastic and well attended. This year will be even better. I heard so many new systems. Surprisingly, not all of them sounded as good as I was assuming/hoping...

Yeah, I was really bummed when I saw the date for that first tournament - Wayne and I were planning to meet there and spend a great weekend listening to lots of great stuff.

My hope was to possibly be of assistance. If I can't, I know when to stay out of the road!

I will be driving over from South Bend IN, for all 3 days, staying at the Westin. If anyone want to meet up send me a PM, thanks. I met some a few guys last year from the Audio Circle forum and they were pretty cool.

FYI I was also disappointed with some of speakers at last yrs show, mostly it was the tallest speakers like Von Schweikert, Focal Grande Utopia, Scaena, all of them seemed to project too large of an image to me. However the smaller Focal Utopia Scalla sounded extremely good to me anyway. As did YG Acoustics, Martin Logan Montis, the large MBL's, Sony's AR's, Linn Audio of NH.

Thanks Brent, see you there. Always look forward to meeting forum members in person. I'll have >500GB of tunes, but I encourage folks to bring their own. I'll play anything outside of Sonnies favorite artist, Justin Bieber.

cheers

Hey now... I see you trying to slip that in on me. Just because you wear his cologne doesn't mean I like his music.

I wish I could go this year!!!! I had everything planned out except one thing.....I'm trying to close on a home. Had some major issues to take care of and that kind of killed my plans for Axpona this year :( ! I really like the Axpona shows and was going to drive from Florida to Chitown! Well, there's always next year. What I would really like is for someone to sponsor a show in the South! That would be just great! I went to Axpona in J'ville and loved it. It's not like the South doesn't have the weather, or cities to host it (Tampa, Atlanta, Miami, hey I'll even throw P'cola, NO, and Palm Beach into the mix).

Re: 2014 Axpona
 

TitaniumTroy and I are going to meet up in the restaurant(Benchmark Gastropub) inside the Westin at around 8am to sometime before the opening of the show at 10am on Friday. I will be there from 8am-9:30 or so. The show starts at 10am::::: Schedule

I will go ahead and wear a red baseball cap so you can spot me. Please join us!

PM me for my cell phone. There is also happy hour.......I intend to have a few and would love to compare notes/thoughts.

Well, having been at both, I can tell you attendance was much stronger in CHI, hence....

See you gents there.

cheers

So its actually in the Westin? How many usually attend? I'm not too far and think I'll check it out!

No doubt, more vendors - stronger money base, etc. When I say that I wish a show would come south, I mean a new show...we're dyin' down here! ;)

Expecting about 5000 this year.

Re: 2014 Axpona
 

I really liked AJ's speaker last year, one of my favorites of the whole show. So definitely looking forward to hearing the floor standing version.
