Starting to plan my trip up to see Axpona this year. Any interest in a listener meetup at some point? @amirm planning on coming this year?

Exhibitors: Full Brand List (436 Entries)

http://www.axpona.com/exhibitors.asp?list=brand

For names that get a little traction here at ASR. Maybe have missed some, but, still...

Don't see Kii, Harman (or JBL), Hypex,

Do see ATC, Benchmark, Ess, iFi, Lyngdorf, Revel, Schiit, Soekris, Technics,

Western Electric !?!?...

Wiki: "As of 2013, the stylized Western Electric brand name survives as the trademark of the Western Electric Export Corporation, a privately owned high-end audio company in Rossville, Georgia." Pffff.

The Harbeth room made my ears stand up.

Go by there if you can and give me a second opinion.

I looked up my local Harbeth dealer - Appointment Only. Looks like they set up 'the" listening room with what you want to hear. i won't waste their time, though I might ask them to tell me when they do have it set up for some other sucker,, and see how that goes.

I've seen and heard the Kii speakers at the show before, maybe they partnered with some another exhibitor for the room. I wish Harmon would demo my speakers at AXPONA, JBL 4367's, but will probably be L100 Classic's with Quadrex foam grill.

I really love Harbeth speakers. I owned the SuperHL5plus models for a while and they were superb. (It just turned out I thought my bigger speakers were even better, so I sold the Harbeths. But when I hear Harbeths playing, I still feel that tug...)
