I'll be there in the JTR Speakers/JRiver Media Center/High Impact AV room. It is in the Lobby Level in LaSalle Ballroom C.

There will be a multi-channel system featuring seven JTR Speakers Noesis 215RT's and a JVC DLA-RS4500 projector. There will also be a two channel system featuring the same Ferrari Red JTR Speakers Noesis 210RT's that were at RMAF in 2016.

If all goes well I hope to be there Saturday.  Been awhile and this is close so I'm gonna try to make it.

I was at AXPONA on Friday and thought the turnout was pretty darn high.  Did anyone else feel that way?  Definitely seemed like a growth from last year....and time to find a bigger hotel for 2018 (which I know they are doing).

-dB (did I win those VS speakers yet?)

OK, now you're just makin' me mad.

Only joking, hope the show is going well and those attending are having a good time.  I'm thinkin' about a Pink Floyd song right now...guess which one.

Were you in the Odyssey Audio room when Klaus cued that one up? Of course this was after setting the ambience in the room? Thought it was 1976 again. AWESOME. 8)

No, unfortunately the reference was more literal as I am home in WA state.

I'll be in both Room 308 (with BorderPatrol Audio Electronics and Volti Audio) and with fellow AC Sponsor Vinnie Rossi in nearby Room 314...

dB - if you're looking for a superb DAC (at $995), you might want to check out BorderPatrol's new DAC. It's housed in a solid copper chassis (not plated)... and sounds wonderful! It's making it's global debut at AXPONA! Gary Dews from BorderPatrol is known for his incredible power supplies & phenomenal sounding equipment...





More info here... http://www.borderpatrol.net/DAC.htm

Either way, please everyone come join us for a libation of your choosing & Have Fun!

Cheers,
Pete

I hope everyone had a great time at AXPONA! The libations were flowing in Room 314!  :thumb:

Some early feedback from the chief bottle washer and cook at Part Time Audiophile... https://parttimeaudiophile.com/2017/04/21/axpona-2017-borderpatrol-triode-wire-labs-and-volti-audio/

The new Volti Rivals were outstanding (dynamic, real & true!) and the new BorderPatrol DAC was phenomenal!  So good that I had to order one! Can't wait!

Thanks to all who came to our room!

Cheers,
Pete
