    Looking forward to the Florida International Audio Expo next month in Tampa (February 16-18). Look forward to seeing friends and listening to new components. What a great way to kick off the year!

    Oh yeah, I’ll be there! Rocking it with 3 rooms.


    The exhibitor rooms were all sold out weeks ago. 83 rooms strong (the MAX we could have at the hotel).

    Next year at the Edition!

    Will be there, looking forward to your rooms Mike, and all else.

    Would be nice to have a quick Audioshark meetup for some coffee and pastries. I’d be happy to bring some Starbucks if we can figure out a place to call Audiosharkville for an hour or two during the event.

    Re: Fiae 2024

    A few hours yesterday to get the lay of the land. I feel the show is better this year than past years in terms of diversity of rooms, and the thought I see going into most (some, you just sort of have to wonder though…).

    I heard some really amazing sounding systems, and saw some equipment I’d never heard of that I really liked.

    Have to say, Mike’s room really takes the cake imo. Holy cow, that was some impressive equipment, thoughtfully installed, and wow, what sound. So often it’s said the goal is sounding like a live performance. In all these years I’ve yet to hear a system - homes, shows, demos - that actually achieves anything near that. Mike’s room was the first time I thought if I closed my eyes I could imagine being at a concert.

    That said, there are many really excellent sounding setups, and the vendors all seem somehow more engaged this year.

    It was nice to see the Denmark guys back, their enthusiasm is always a bit catching. Met the guys from Woo down from NY and wow do they have some nice headphone amps. In a really interesting turn I met the managing director of Amphion, here all the way from Finland! I’ve had their speakers a few times and recognized his name from his badge, and showed him an email exchange we had almost 10 years ago! He was a super nice guy back then, and a super nice guy to meet in person. And of course, there was Jay, holding center court with his literally larger than life self.

    Curious for impressions if anyone gets to check out Amphion speakers, particularly their top Krypton model. They're listed as being in room 1006 which is a Playback Distribution exhibit. TIA for your time.

    Amphion makes really high quality speakers. Their experience in pro / mixing shows in the utter neutrality of their home audio line-up. Built like a tank, with a Scandinavian design bent, and impactful, neutral sound without feeling analytical. I feel their speakers are the closest I’ve experienced to adding no color, while preserving what I feel like was actually in the recording. Also really helpful, pleasant people to deal with. I miss my Argon 3s and if I were to go back to a bookshelf these would be high on the list.

    Don’t think I’m going today, between the rain and cold and having to park at the mall.
