Canadian Thanksgiving is done. That means only 5 days ’till the must attend audio show of the year, Denver’s Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.
I was under some silly false assumptions about the show before my first attendance last year. Folksy, small, and a few other damning with faint praise terms were the uneducated reasons I had never been. Save the pennies for CES and something sexy in Europe. I was wrong. Boy, was I wrong.
Denver is a perfect host city. Clean, safe, great food, cheap car rentals, great airport, excellent arts and the wonderful Rocky Mountains on your doorstep. The show itself is the opposite of what I assumed. Sophisticated, very large (170 rooms), focused on two channel audio (and now with ‘CanJam’, the foremost headphone show in the world), supremely well run, and filled with very pleasant, very passionate audiophiles. Live music, seminars, well-treated rooms, accessible elevators, restaurants, meeting places, good coffee add to the show’s great quality.
So, the countdown begins. Days, not weeks. See you all there.
Watch for Audiophilia’s detailed coverage immediately after the show.
