“We are getting the band back together.” If you know the movie that quote references, then you probably are an audiophile of a certain age. Well, me and the band did get back together this weekend, along with a few new mates to help cover all the flashy product releases and great sounds at the Florida Audio Expo in Tampa. We heard some jazz, not a lot of blues, and a whole lot of Rush at high volumes. But in the end, we all got together again to talk about what we had seen and heard. So this is our story…
Special thanks to all the hosts and collaborators that helped put this episode of The Occasional Podcast together, including Marc Phillips, Scot Hull and the new guy Matthew Partrick. I would also like to thank both FLAX 2023 showrunner Bart Andeer and PR specialist Sue Toscano for helping with our room setup for the weekend. We all had a blast and were very grateful to have the coverage run so smoothly from end to end.
