AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

My past life as an importer and distributor still lingers as I try to cover these high-end audio shows.

There are over 1,000,000 brands exhibiting here at Capital Audiofest … okay, okay, — I don’t know how many brands exactly, but it does seem like a lot this year. Which makes 2018’s event feel every bit like the “premier show of North America’s eastern coast”, that we often claim it to be.
