I love filling this site with all manner of shameful gossip, scurrilous innuendo, and outright libelous accusations … but I’m sad to say that travel to the far corners of the world to bring you delectably tasty visual representations of audio treats is horrifically expensive. The average show costs me about $400 to fly to, about $100 a night to hang out at, and, well, eating is occasionally nice. Turns out that I drop about $1,000 per show, which means I’m spending a pile of money that could have been spent on gear…. Anyway, I need help to bring show coverage to you and to do it in a way that doesn’t suck — or at least, sucks a lot less than you’d get from the rest of the mainstream audio media.
Which brings me to the hat-on-the-sidewalk.
Wish I didn’t have to do it, but I just can’t keep on this way indefinitely. So, here I am, asking for help. I’m looking for sponsors!
Sponsorship will mean more coverage of more rooms at more audio shows, like (in no particular order) RMAF, Newport, Dagogo, CES, TAVES, SSI, AKFest, Munich High-End, and more — all of which are out of reach without assistance.
Sponsorship also means that there will be more photos. More introductions. More visits. More color commentary. More in-depth detail and more discussion. Did I mention more photos?
And yes — more voices! With sponsorship, I can bring in more and more up and coming reviewers — and actually pay them for their time, their skill, and their talent. Novel, I know.
So, what does sponsorship get you?
In return for your generous offer of support, I am offering an acknowledgement in the form of a banner. Call it my Wall Of Fame! You can check out the current Wall Of Fame, there, to the right!
