I'm back from Chicago - AXPONA 2019 was another home-run show
This year I teamed up with Triode Wire Labs
cables in Room 488, and the 'mystery speakers' shown this year were a pair of the upcoming Vinnie Rossi Stiletto 15's
[pre-production prototypes were used]:http://www.vinnierossi.com/stiletto-15/
Here are some of my cell phone pics of our demo room:
The response to our system from show attendees and members of the press was outstanding, and Triode Pete and I were extremely pleased
with the sound in our room (with a wide variety of demo tracks)!
I can go on and on at length about the sonic attributes of this system (I do consider it my best sounding demo room to date!), but I'll instead begin posting feedback from show attendees and the press as it becomes available. This was the largest Axpona in terms of the number of exhibitors, so as you can imagine, the press had a hard time covering all the rooms in detail with only 3 days. Show attendee turn-out was very good, except for on Sunday, which ended up being a snowy day in Chicago. Many flights back home were cancelled due to the weather! But those who did make it in on Sunday to listen were treated to more comfortable demo conditions.
I want to thank EVERYONE who visited our room to listen and make music requests. It was a high-energy crowd, and as usual, many attendees stayed in our room for a while and returned a few more times during the show!
