Acapella Campanile 2 loudspeakers, Audio Note, and CAS 2018

By | July 14th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , , |

We have a new arrival, a pair of Acapella Campanile 2 loudspeakers. We will be showing these at the local show in a few weeks – CAS 2018, on July 27 – 29, in Oakland. Constantine Soo (Dagogo) and Neli will be doing a Facebook Live this Sunday at 2:00pm featuring these speakers. These are the first Campanile 2 to make it to our shores, and look and sound like small versions of the much larger Acapella ‘Apollon’ speakers.

Show Report and Best of Show – Axpona 2018

By | June 14th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , |

I have not been doing a lot of ‘Best of Show’ reports lately. The ones I read out there in the wild internet chose rooms apparently at random [or as a function of how many advertising dollars were spent this year] and I do not want to be a participant in such a worthless and misleading tradition like this [and in public, on the internet, too! Have they no shame? ;-)].

But people like them and so I will contribute this version of what I think a Best Of Show might be like on Opposite Earth, where I used to live and where things were supposed to make sense and people were supposed to be honorable some of the time.… Read the full article

Photography is an important part of every high-end audio show – but these days everyone has a smartphone, and things can go wrong… 🙂

Danny Kaey of Sonic Flare – […your caption here…]

Rafe Arnott, most recently with Part Time Audiophile, was using this Canon 5D MkII with a Canon 24-105 L lens as his primary camera

Neli is happy, it was a good show
