Volti Rival CAF 2019

WASHINGTON (PTA) — Volti Audio’s two room exhibition at Capital Audiofest 2019, came together at the last minute. Due to an unfortunate emergency for another exhibitor, Volti Audio thus became the beneficiary of a second exhibit room. This exhibit was therefore unlisted in the CAF show-guide. Along for the ride: BorderPatrol Audio, Triode Wire Labs, and Pi Audio Group. Photography by Paul Elliott.

Zu Audio CAF 2019

WASHINGTON DC (PTA) — Two new writers have joined the Part-Time Audiophile staff. Luckily for us, both were able to join us at Capital Audiofest 2019.
