I talked to some of the volunteers at the show and attendance was WAY up over past years. So much so, that they ran out of booklets and handouts for people attending the show. I don't think that's ever happened before, in the history of RMAF.
For myself, as a show attendee, the fact that everything was spread out was great because you didn't have vendors bleeding sound into each others' rooms nearly as much.
And the "big rig" rooms finally had enough space to breath and really do their thing.
It was that Alsyvox room that ruined it for me! I played the same tracks on my Maggie's at home and although the Maggie's souded great, the Alsyvox planar's blew them away! They're also $87,000 speakers!!!
The Alsyvox planar speakers were also dead sexy works of art. The fit and finish on those speakers was just incredible. Those are speakers that you would never, ever want to shove up against a wall, because they are so damn beautiful.
