It was a triumphant return to semi-normalcy in a way. AXPONA 2023 had sold out their available space and offered up over 200 listening rooms plus the Ear Gear Expo and marketplace convention halls. Things were busy busy as we crushed our way through 3 days of audiophilia (some of even got there on Tuesday).
This episode of The Occasional Podcast features none other than 3 members of the AXPONA 2023 coverage crew, Matthew Partrik, Mohammad Samji and Marc Phillips. Along with the host Brian Hunter, the quartet sums up show with their highlights for listening rooms, headphone gear and even accessories from the event that took place this weekend in Schaumburg, IL April 14-16th. They even break down their final picks for AXPONA best of show.
We will be following up with all of our written coverage in the next few days, but if you want a sneak peek into the absolute best sounds currently in play, you can hear it all firsthand from the people who witnessed here. So many rooms sounded better right off the bat than usual, as did the total cume of great sonics over the weekend. Expect to see much more from Scot, Marc and Matthew in the upcoming week on the subject.
