Axpona 2019, April 12-14. Who is going?
These are the people I know of that will be there.
What booths do you recommend to visit?
I went in 2016 and some of the booths I really enjoyed were Seaton Sound, JTR Speakers, Smyth-Research (demo the Realiser A16 if you can!), HSU, Pioneer, Sennheiser, Salk, Parts-Express, and Emotiva. Looking forward to the event.
Maybe we can use this thread to organize a lunch meal together with the AVSForum crowd one day during the event?
Edit 4-3-19 —
reached out to me and offered that I extend the invite to those attending to meet up in the JTR Speakers room (Nirvana C ballroom) to chat and meet and greet on Friday night after Axpona’s normal business day has drawn to a close.
At 6:01-6:03 there will be a capability expo of the JTR system at full bore. You'll want to be there to experience this --- potentially with hearing protection. Phenomenal clarity at 130B? - The JTR are just getting warmed up.
Then for the next couple hours - 6-8PM there will be a more reserved volume, free audition session/meet and greet. People can request specific demo material, or listen at their preference. At 8PM a full movie will be played on the JTR 9.8.6 Atmos setup - movie choice to be determined by vote of those present. There are about 25 chairs and plenty of standing room. Alcoholic beverages and food are allowed, but it is BYOB.
