Heading to NYC tomorrow for the New York Audio Show. It’s going to be a quite a show.
It’s also going to be somewhat fractured, which is odd. For the second year in a row, a lot of competing events are also occurring. Stereophile’s blog posts (and reader comments) on the show cover a lot of the details — and politics — of the current situation, so I’m not going to recover the ground here, other than to note how disappointing all that is.
I’m pretty psyched for this year’s show. The venue, the New York Palace, is pretty posh — hopefully the acoustics will be better than what we were able to get at the Waldorf. Fingers crossed.
The strength of this show appears to be in the “extra stuff” — check out all the seminars here (there’s a ton). And that’s not event the half of it. I’m getting the feeling that “Ye Olde Audio Show” just got a significant kick in the derriere — look for more audio shows to add “extra stuff” to draw in more attendees. Loving this!
Anyway, I’ll be the dude wandering around with the big bag, camera and long lenses. Feel free to say hi!
Show coverage will show up on The Absolute Sound, so look for that, there.
