I listened briefly and probably will go back for another listen today. Rooms were crowded yesterday and didn’t get there on Friday.

I didn't hear brightness in the Paradigms, sounded very nice. They were doing demo's on/off of their Anthem room correction and it made a speaker that was too large for a small hotel room sound very respectable.

I posted pics of the rooms that I liked, in general. The Paradigms were sounding pretty good. So were the Triangle speakers. Of course, brightness could have something to do with the source and amplification equipment, or lack of room treatment. But in general, these all sounded just fine to my ears.

I had a demo of that Triangle system with vinyl, the entire system, all tubes, less than $20k, which is rare for these sort of show setups. It was the biggest surprise to me, really sounded good, smooth, well integrated, just a pleasure to listen to. Mikey Fremer was sitting in front of me playing some of his "secret sauce" vinyl, so perhaps that helped as well. I liked it a lot.

Had a great time at the show this weekend!  Well done to everyone involved in putting it on!

Always good to talk with other audio folks and friends that I get to see at the shows.

Agreed. I vote this one of the best shows I've attended. While smaller than the other biggies, the quality of the systems was right up there with the best of them, and the sound frankly was way above average. It turns out the venue had something to do with this! I'll leave it to one of the founders of the event to explain. Kudos to the team behind this exceptional event premier!  :thumb:

The place was originally a condominium. Not too may hotels with washer/dryer outlets in kitchen  :wink:
As such, pretty solid, well insulated from each other rooms. Decent size too. Quite a few comments about that. Yes, part of why the venue was chosen, along with location, etc.
Thanks to all who came, the turnout, buzz, coverage etc exceeded expectations. Also surprising(?) was the amount of youthful and female faces.
Heavy local presence also, 99% who had never been to (nor likely to travel across country for) an audio fest.

cheers,

AJ

p.s. Rich, bring some speakers next year  :lol:
