Labour Day is done. That means only weeks ’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 a few years ago. 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.
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 (200 rooms), focused on two channel audio and ‘CanJam’, the foremost headphone/computer music/mobile audio 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. See you all there.
Watch for Audiophilia’s detailed, walkabout coverage 9:00 a.m. the morning after the show closes.
