I usually go, but can’t this time.  I’m immun-compromised with my current chemotherapy.  In the past I had been a volunteer at the registration desk!  I’ll be looking for reviews of the show!

I saw some pics from Cap Audiofest, is Spatial doing ultralam component isolation support platforms?! See under the holo and linear tube audio components.

Does anyone know what source components, including DACs, Clayton uses for displays in his own room at shows?

In the past he has used LTA, Lampizator, and Anticable PC's and connections.  I'm pretty sure I read he will be partnered with LTA again at CAF.  I'll be at Capfest in about a half hour.

Sure looks like Ultralam.  Not sure if Spatial is doing it though.

Wondering if they're showing the Fern and Roby Montrose turntable, love to see a pic of it in the wild.

Thanks. I'm particularly interested to know what DAC.

I was at the Capital Audiofest on Saturday, 11/6, and I met Clayton for the first time.  That was cool to meet face to face after communicating with him by phone and email for a period of time, which resulted in my purchase of the X5s.  On Saturday I noticed he was using a Holo Audio May DAC, in room 526, which I am a big fan of that brand.  I sold my Holo Audio Spring 2 KTE DAC and ordered the newly released Spring 3 KTE DAC.  Can’t wait for delivery!

See pics below and sorry for the blurred pic.

No problem....  Youtube has a few videos on CAPFEST.  Jay's Audio Lab has a few videos on Youtube and one in particular, he gives his review on his top (3) picks for best systems at the show.
