So, the location has moved again?  I know it moved from it's original location to the Embassy Suites near DFW airport but checking the latest information shows yet another location near the Galleria Mall.  Am I correct?  Looking forward to going.

Hi Randy H,
Yes, LSAF as new location for 2023. The old hotel needed refreshing so rather than suffer through that process show moved. See the address in my post at top of this thread. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Slight change, the power amps are the hybrid M1200s with a tube input stage and SS output stage. I'll also have the PS Audio PerfectWave SADC transport (PST) so feel free to bring your own SADCs and/or CDs

After a two-year hiatus LSAF 2023 will include several new companies. Lone Star Audio Fest has always been a great place for start-up HiFi companies to get early exposure. After a recent phone conversation with founder Bryan Miller one of the new companies I am looking forward to hearing is Miller Audio LLC. Miller Audio https://www.milleraudiollc.com/ initial offerings center around the venerable Dynaco ST-70 and ST-120 tube amps. Drawing on his 30 year’s experience as an electrical engineer with Raytheon Bryan has designed a ST-70 Auto Bias Module the first new upgrade board for the ST-70s in many years. Michael Lundy’s Uilleam Audio will provide his personal set of NX-Studios for the Miller Audio room demo system. Upgraded ST-70 driving NX-Studios will be a treat and statement of very big bang for the buck high-end HiFi.

Richard, thanks for posting the Hollis Audio Labs LSAF system on the show thread. Looking forward to seeing and hearing the new HAL Magnetar II design with latest planar drivers. Also looking forward to meeting Al Clark of Danville Signal in person. The phone conversions I have had with Al revealed he is certainly one of the giant brains in HiFi. And he posts pictures of his dog to Instagram so of course he's my kind of guy. See y'all in Dallas!

LSAF is only a week away. Frantically trying to get everything ready, and keep up with the day job too

Here’s a pic of the Studio Monitors that are going. Haven’t got the grills done yet




I’m also working on strands. Here is one in Paduk



There will also be a pair in Wenge

Reviewing the exhibitors lists for LSAF 2023 I was very pleased to see both Raven Audio and Austin Audioworks are returning to Dallas next weekend. A great value of LSAF is the opportunity to meet and get to know the principals of the companies exhibiting. Be assured you will enjoy meeting Dave Thomson and James Connell of Raven Audio and Austin Audioworks' Barry Thornton. Their demo rooms offer outstanding sound from lust worthy equipment.
