Lone Star Audio Fest 2019 Hootenanny

DALLAS (PTA) — Everything I thoroughly enjoy about audio shows seldom has to do with audio. As for the Lone Star Audio Fest 2019 in Dallas,Texas, it proved itself to be one of the more rambunctious of America’s hi-fi events. The Lone Star Audio Fest pulled-off great sound, and an equally great party atmosphere.

From sunrise-to-sunset — and often those dark hours in between — this festival of sound is equal parts “High-End Audio Show” and “a Drinking Community with a Hi-Fi problem.Read the full article

DALLAS (PTA) — Mike Lundy of Uilleam Audio is essentially a woodworking maven, who has mastered wood finishing and speaker cabinet building.

Audio Crafters Guild (website coming soon) of Tulsa Oklahoma brought to Lone Star Audio Fest one of the classiest sounding loudspeakers at the show.

Norman Tracy is Audio Crafters Guild, which manufactures true hi-fi electronics and loudspeakers. Notice I said hi-fi and not high-end — because Mr. Tracy aims to deliver as much true fidelity as possible while still keeping his prices reasonable.
