I'm in NYC and the last time I attended the show was back in 2015. That year it was held outside NYC up in Weschester which was a break after hosting in NYC for many year. I've attended 2012, 13, 14 before that. That 2015 was very disappointed not just because it was out of NYC, it was a smaller show also. I think the show started to decline after 2014.They did returned to NYC in 2016 but by that time I lost interest in the show and just stop going considering how much they charge for what would be a small show. By the way the 2012 and 2013 was great though.
Anyway, it had been a while so I might go this year to see what's new and get a glimpse of those systems that only the 1% or less can afford. But I'll buy one day ticket since it is likely will be a small show again and that's going to cost me $26. Hmmm... or I can spend that money for an Lp and a cheap bottle of French red wine and stay home listen to my system
