It really is the best consumer oriented A/V show east of the Rockies, besting even New York audiophile shows.
Quick shot down I94 from SE MI.

Obviously weighted toward audio and audiophiles, including portable and headphones, but there are usually rooms with immersive/Atmos demos and video projectors and subs with processor and receivers.

Me and another audio buddy have flights/hotels booked. Have a 3rd pal that we're working on.
Should be a good weekend!

Make sure to drop by room 1520 if you do attend. I'll be showcasing some attainable 2 channel products:

Rosso Fiorentino Certaldo
MastersounD BoX
North Star Design Intenso

This will be my first time at the show. Matt Poes will be working with me in the room as well, offering his services to help treat the room. If you are unaware of Matt and are big in home theater, he is a good contact to have. He is very knowledgeable and even teaching me some new tricks.


These shows take a lot of effort and money to do and I'd love get some honest feedback on my setup from some guys here. You can't grow if there isn't criticism.


I hope to see some of you Chicago boys that I saw at the last meet out there. The show is too close for you guys to miss!

Yes I buy tickets there every year once I show up. They sell shirts there to where you buy there tickets. I’m 45 mins away from there to.

There was a Groupon that worked out to ~$8/day if you bought 3 days tix.
Probably expired deal, but heads up for next year.

I really thought I'd go but way too much to do here before the meet on the 28th. I only have weekends to work on things.
