Just thought I'd get the word out on this year's installment of CanJam@RMAF, since there hasn't already been an announcement on it yet.
Vendors currently on the exhibitor list include:
- Cavalli Audio
- JH Audio
- Moon Audio (not on the list actually, but Drew has a line on his Web site about it)
- Red Wine Audio
- Woo Audio
I'd imagine more vendors will be there, as there were several others at last year's - ALO, Bottlehead, Beyerdynamic, Eddie Current, Fostex, Ray Samuels Audio, Schiit, TTVJ, and Ultimate Ears, among others. I'd guess they'll be there as well.
And on the speakers front, I noticed that Monitor Audio will officially be at RMAF for the first time! If I'm in town for RMAF (not sure I will be), I'm probably going to be stopping by the show for at least them if nothing else.
For the CanJam@RMAF newbies, here are a couple of relevant links:

Alternate nearby hotels:
Hyatt Regency DTC, Hampton Inn DTC, Hyatt Place DTC, & Doubletree DTC. (DTC is short for Denver Tech Center.)
Also note that the RMAF Marriott has up to quad room rates, which means 4 people per room! Get your bunk on with up to 3 other Head-Fiers?

Why You Should Attend:
I'm not kidding when I say that pretty much everything headphone-related will be under one roof at this show. Anyone who's even a little bit into headphones (or speakers for that matter) will find the show to be more than worth your time & money. Last year the huge Head-Fi room was literally filled wall-to-wall with vendors showing off more headphone gear than you can shake a stick at!
For those who've been to a meet and might be thinking "I'll just wait for the next local meet," CanJam@RMAF is more than just a mere meet - it's a straight-up vendor-loaded expo where everyone is hawking their wares, candy-store style! Meets have their place, but CanJam@RMAF is where the headphone world gets together to show off the latest stuff, and maybe even release new stuff at the show!
Lastly, CanJam@RMAF isn't a meet either. It's 100% vendors from the close-knit Head-Fi community. Don't bother bringing your gear, well unless you want to hear how your own headphones sound on a vendor's amp. Do bring your own music (CDs, USB devices, DAPs), and don't forget to have fun.
I've attended every CJ@RMAF installment so far and they were all a great time, and I can't recommend attending enough. Anyone who hasn't been to one yet owes it to himself to be there!
