It appears 2018 is going to be another hectic year for U.S. audio shows. One California event that was postponed last year is set to return — less than a week before another major show in the same city — and several others are upgrading to new venues.

The Home Entertainment Show (T.H.E. Show) cancelled its planned September 2017 event at the eleventh hour, but president Maurice R. Jung told me this week his show will return on June 1-3 in Irvine.… Read the full article

CH-Zu-Featured

Xact Audio XX Mag Drive turntable.

This was not exactly your father’s stereo system… no wood veneer here, but that’s what drew me into the room: the look of all that gleaming CH Precision gear, (A1 amplifier, L1 preamplifier, X1 Power Supplies) and the two big, black, and silver Zu Audio Omen Def. MK IVs ($18,500 USD) that were hooked up to it. I’ve reviewed CH Precision previously, and have always been quite taken with the articulate, sophisticated, and tonally-balanced sound this Swiss company achieves through their circuit designs, so when I saw it paired with the badass, and incredibly transparent Zu MK IVs, I knew this would be fun.… Read the full article

Belcanto-Black-FEATURED

Bel Canto Black.

I have to admit the hallways at the Denver Marriott Tech Centre were starting to collapse inward like a spiral tunnel, and I felt like my legs were running through thigh-deep water by Saturday afternoon at RMAF.

No, I wasn’t having a reaction to prescription flu medication, I was behind schedule, and exhausted after just finishing putting out our new PDF magazine The Occasional. People like Brian Hunter over at our sister publication Audio Head made mock fun of me as a “creative type” and chortled at the notion that I might need a few days to recharge.… Read the full article

RMAF2017-PREVIEW-FEATURE

You’ve got to get into the groove.

It’s baaaaaaaaack…

This time bigger, and better than ever – at least that’s the hope. With the Denver Marriott Tech Centre Hotel fully operational, and remodelled, the hype is starting for show goers who are psyched to see the bar, restaurants, and rooms after construction during last year’s RMAF got noses out of joint. I didn’t mind it all, and had a wonderful time there in 2016, so I’m confident that with the renovations over, this will be the best RMAF yet.… Read the full article
