Sorry to hear that Dallas is not in your plans. Hearing your SAM1's a few years back was the surprise of the show for me... in a very, very good way.
It was good meeting you. In all honesty, LSAF is my favorite show. No pretensions, just bring your audio wares to share with others, even DIYers. IOW, an audio
show. Shame that Axpona shifted later in Apr, but I understand why, just as I understand why LSAF won't just to accommodate that shift.
Unfortunately flying back from CHI late Mon (gear shipped from Axpona to arrive back later in week), to fly out to Dallas Thu....isn't happening.
Maybe I'll skip CHI next year (as I had planned this year!).
