RMAF 2019 Days Two and Three

By | September 8th, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

The only question in need of an answer Friday and especially Saturday was “will they show up”. Certainly, while the venue was costly for exhibitors, The Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center is a stellar venue for a hi-fi show. The rooms sounded good, in part because of the non-box room layouts, the elevators worked the best of any show I’ve attended ever and the Internet was by far the fastest.

The sound in the rooms of the sprawling Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center a few miles from Denver International Airport was uniformly decent, which was positively surprising given the usual learning curve required for even the most experienced exhibitors to learn the room acoustics and compensate for the usually poor “hotel sound”.

Wilson Audio Specialties Debuts Flagship XVX Loudspeaker At RMAF 2019

By | September 6th, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

The first day of RMAF pointed out to those attending both the promise and the pitfalls of the new Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center located a few miles from Denver International Airport. The hotel is a sprawling, enormous resort. To navigate your way around requires downloading an app. Seriously. It’s that big. You have to plan your time carefully because to get from the tower hotel room exhibits to the Convention Center takes at least 10 minutes and once you are there, arriving at the rooms or the seminar space can take another 10.
