The Occasional Podcast: Now on iTunes!

Our coverage of Capital Audiofest 2022 is pouring out into the site as we speak (pardon the expression, I type, you read). But if you really want to cut to the chase, check out this week’s episode of our audio-centric The Occasional Podcast. The entire CAF 2022 writing staff joins the show (Eric, Grover, Dave and Jameson) to give their HiFi highlights and best of show.

The team drops a myriad of observations from the show, including coverage for all the new product launches and rooms that impressed. Was there near sonic perfection to be found at the East Coast show? You will have to listen to find out. But if one thing from this year’s CAF is apparent, its that live audio show circuit is back in full swing.
