Capital Audiofest 2020
« on: July 01, 2020, 12:36:44 PM »
I find it odd that the website for CAF2020 does not indicate it is cancelled. I can't imagine an audio show this fall.Does anyone know officially if it is cancelled?

I saw a blurb on some audio publication email that 2020 has been cancelled, and that plans for 2021 are underway...

Why would it be banned in Boston. Speaking of which, if anyone enjoys baked beans, I find B&M ‘Boston’s Best’ to be my favorite.

  I agree B&M have been a staple at our home forever. Banned in Boston was a joke.

  Well back on Nov 5th-8th. Booked and ready to rumble. Not showing this year our lines as our distributor is.  Hope to see a few AN people there.

I went. It was pretty good. There was a good amount of vendors/manufacturers although I wish there were more. Just enough attendees to make it a success with out making it too crowded so it was very pleasant. My favorite rooms were Kharma, Tidal, Acora, Salk. I would say 70% of the rooms were spinning vinyl. Of the 30% that were digital, 90% of them were using Lampizator DAC's.

PS: From the manufacturers I spoke with they are SLAMMED with business. Salk has a 6 month waiting list, Rogue about 8 weeks. Modwright is having trouble keeping up with demand. So ironically the audio business is doing well

Yes that is a particularly strong statement given all the DACs out there. It's something I need to compare with my dac in the future.

  It is busy. We are the busiest we have ever been. Especially Qln Speakers. Cannot get enough of them. The Prestige 3 and 1 are selling like hotcakes.
