What to expect when you’re attending!

Lots of NEW and DEBUT products in action. It’s no secret that the Florida Audio Expo is often spoken about by the audiophile press as the dress rehearsal for Axpona. With that, it’s common to hear an exhibitor say: “This is the first time we’re showing it in the US (or World) but the debut is at Axpona.”

So, consider FLAX 2022, your sneak peak of what’s to come.

With an expected fifty exhibit rooms, new product demos will abound. New system debuts from brands like MBL have us excited, but none more so than the two room exhibit from Tenacious Sound. What’s so interesting about their exhibit is the amount of new product launches, along with several heralded brands making their return to US markets.

Tenacious Sound Presents World Premieres at the Florida Audio Expo!

We reached out to Tenacious Sound for comments about the upcoming show. Tenacious Sound a brick-and-mortar hi-fi dealer based in the Augusta, Georgia area, serving the Southeastern US. They will be presenting multiple world product premieres within two rooms at the Florida Audio Expo here in Tampa.

“We’re excited to be exhibiting at the Florida Audio Expo for the first time, with several world premieres of very cool new products,” said Shayne Tenace, founder and owner of Tenacious Sound. “Along with world premieres of speakers from Perlisten and Q Acoustics and a stereo amp from English Acoustics, we’ll be showing two models of Michell Engineering turntables. As longtime fans of Michell ‘tables, we’re happy to be involved in the brand’s return to America.”

“We’re also looking forward to showing our ‘Best sound under $5k’ system—we think attendees will be impressed by the sound quality that can be attained with a modest budget. We look forward to seeing both old and new friends at the Florida Audio Expo, and we think our systems will impress a lot of listeners,” said Tenace.
