Saturday at RMAF 2019. The big day. The day when most people show up to high-end audio shows, the day when everything exciting happens. The halls weren’t packed because the layout at the Gaylord Resort is so spread out, but many of the rooms themselves were packed with attendees. The Rocky Mountain Audio Fest is back!

It took me three times to get into the Parasound and Tekton room, where the amazing little $1195 NewClassic 200 integrated amp/DAC drove the huge Tekton Moabs, which inexplicably cost just $4500/pair.… Read the full article

After T.H.E. Show 2019, I did something that I should have done at High-End 2019 in Munich–I stayed a couple of extra days after the show ended. A good friend of mine called me just the other day and asked me how Munich was, mentioning how exciting it was that I finally made it to Europe after all these years. The truth is, I should have lingered for a few more days, maybe a week. Six weeks later, Munich was a blur in my mind like I never really went.… Read the full article

PranaFidelity, Helius, E.A.R., Furutech | T.H.E. Show 2019

In the upcoming Summer Issue of The Occasional, I talk about all of the fantastic brands I’ve discovered over the last year or so, pretty much since I’ve joined the Part-Time Audiophile team. PranaFidelity is another one of those brands, a manufacturer that’s out there creating a buzz about their products despite my relative ignorance. At T.H.E. Show 2019 I was finally able to familiarize myself with this Denver-based company and its kind and thoughtful owner, Steven Norber, and I had that slightly obtuse feeling of someone who has just discovered something that everyone else already knows.… Read the full article

Friday’s Highlights | T.H.E. Show 2019

Long Beach will never be mistaken for Munich, but I do have reasons for wanting to come out to T.H.E. Show 2019 in Southern California. I was born and raised in very nearby Orange County, and I still have emotional attachments here–especially when it comes to hamburgers. Dude, I’ve telling everyone for decades that LA is the center of the universe when it comes to the cheeseburger. LA didn’t invent the burger, but it turned it into an icon. My favorites of all time were the classic joints near the Hollywood studios, although some of those are now gone.… Read the full article

EFS Los Angeles The Show 2019

LOS ANGELES (PTA) — This year’s T.H.E. SHOW 2019 is bigger, better, and already on track to be the most newsworthy yet. There are over 1,000,000 brands exhibiting here in Long Beach — okay, okay — maybe not a million brands exactly, but 200 brands is definitely twice as many over last year. Which makes T.H.E. SHOW 2019’s event feel every bit like the premier audio show of America’s west coast. Lots of exciting manufacturer debuts are taking place at this year’s show, and we at Part-Time Audiophile are committed to bringing you the most extensive coverage of what’s NEW and out-of-this-world in our little Hi-Fi universe.… Read the full article

by Eric Shook

Steven Norber is the founder, designer, and “Mr. Everything” of PranaFidelity. PranaFidelity manufacturers speakers, electronics, and excellent sound. This however isn’t Steven’s first rodeo in the electronics industry, he co-founded EDGE Electronics and lead it to great success.

Prana’s Bhava stand-mount have made quite a splash in the industry since my first hearing them at Axpona in the spring. The Bhava is a true competitor for full-range sound in a much smaller package. A true two-way MTM array, with dual six-inch woofers and a single 1¼-inch tweeter.Read the full article
