AXPONA 2019 Weiss

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

If you are a mastering engineer or have recorded an album in a world-class studio within the last thirty-five years, you are likely quite familiar with the work of Daniel Weiss. If your roots are instead more limited to the world of hi-fi, you should have come across a piece or two of Weiss Engineering‘s high-end hi-fi products somewhere over the last twenty years. At AXPONA 2019, Doug White of The Voice That Is!Read the full article

For our US readers in Pensylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey — mark your calendars.

Doug White, of The Voice That Is, in cooperation with the Philadelphia Area Audio Group and the New Jersey Audio Society, will host a vinyl event featuring Vertere Acoustics and Touraj Moghaddam, Designer.

The topics of discussion will be analog reproduction, turntable and tonearm design.  A short listening session will follow.

Touraj Moghaddam made his name in hi-fi circles as one of the two founders of the UK’s Roksan Audio, which began making turntables just when LPs were facing decline following the arrival of the CD in the mid-1980s.

CAF 2018: Bricasti, Tidal and the Last Word in Inner Detail

By | November 28th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , |

When Eric Franklin Shook and I arrived at the 2018 Capital Audiofest, we decided to mix up the coverage so that neither of us would be covering the same rooms as we did at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest just a few weeks before. I did regret that I wouldn’t have another shot at spending time with those Vimberg speakers from The Voice That Is, but I was relieved when I walked into the big Bricasti room and saw a drop-dead-gorgeous pair of Tidal Audio Contriva Diacera speakers.… Read the full article

CAF 2018: The Lives of The Party

CAF2018-cover

A photographic narrative that parallels the typical show going experience, or in all likelihood is indistinguishable from it. There is no unequivocal way to gauge the probability of a social symmetry.

There will always be members of the community or industry (which is sometimes both) who revel in tearing down the meaning of the things we: do, lust for, and react to. I am one of them, and I am not alone. Many times at audio shows there are great opportunities to engage with healthy thinkers, not so often found in such high concentration.… Read the full article

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. Fear not, as the rag-tag band of misfits from Part-Time Audiophile are here to be your surrogate audio show guide.

Here are some surefire rooms to get you started off on the right foot.Read the full article

RMAF 2018: Vimberg, Tidal, Transfiguration

By | October 29th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

As I’ve mentioned, it’s been a while since I’ve been to a high-end audio show—almost two years, to be exact. I exhibited for the last time at AXPONA back in 2017, which means I was stuck in my room for most of the show, but I made time one special visit due to the incredible buzz I was hearing. That room, of course, belonged to Doug White, proprietor of the Philadelphia-area dealership The Voice That Is. I wanted to hear Tidal Audio speakers and electronics from Germany in all their splendor, and I also wanted to visit my good friend and fellow importer Bob Clarke who brought a new Transfiguration Orpheus phono cartridge along for the ride.… Read the full article

The Voice That Is!, VIMBERG, TIDAL Audio and Antipodes – RMAF 2018

by Eric Shook

First-things-first at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2018, find Doug White of The Voice That Is! This is one of my personal rituals of the audio show circus, and it always pays off. Doug consistently sets the bar for best-in-show sound, so visiting his rooms first leaves me with an audible experience I can call upon when touring and summing other rooms. During my visit with Mr. White, I had the pleasure of taking the first ever press photos of the new VIMBERG speaker line, from VIMBERG founder and designer Jörn Janczak.Read the full article

AXPONA 2018: Best of The Show, Wrap-Up, and Why I am an Audiophile

Audio shows are more than new gear releases and demonstrations to me. They are a chance to connect with the strange personalities that embody what it means to be an eccentric. Sometimes our interests can be socially unfortunate, but it’s during these few moments of the year at audio shows where we audiophiles can feel normal in our priorities, lusts, and musical tastes.

AXPONA 2018 proved to be our largest display of geekdom yet.… Read the full article
