Shows Not Traveled

Life. It’s what happens while you’re making other plans.

I stole that from Lenon, I think. Fits.

The point: I will not be heading to Munich or Newport Beach, sadly. I know, you’re bummed.

That said, the show will go on.

For Munich, I’m counting on our friends over at HiFi Pig to give that show a proper smack about the nether regions. Look for that coverage shortly after the show’s conclusion, with their typical blizzard of photos.

For Newport Beach and T.H.E. Show, we’ll be checking in with Part-Time Audiophiles Mal and Kirsten Kenney. They’re a great team, and for those of you with long memories, Mal was the one that filled in for me at last year’s RMAF when Life called me away unexpectedly.

This year, my absence is a bit more prosaic — “life” in the form of a new job and a scheduled break with the family. Whoops. That stuff could have been better timed, to be sure … assuming that Life allowed for that sort of thing.

Anyway, more will be coming and coming soon.

In the meantime, here’s a peek at what else is coming:

  • Tekton Pendragon SEAS follow-up
  • Nagra Jazz preamp and MSA amplifiers
  • DeVore Fidelity Orangutan O/96
  • First Watt SIT-1 amplifiers

And more. Gonna be a fun summer.


  1. I’ll be at T.H.E Show Newport, as I helped out w/ the Headphonium ballroom – and I’ll be sure to make it nice and debaucherous for a thrilling show report…

  2. I read “scheduled break with the family” as “scheduled break FROM the family” for a brief moment. Yikes! Have a great vacation and I’m looking forward to reading your reviews of the gear you have ahead of you!
