Thread Starter

Buy a ticket to get into RMAF at this link or at the door, and CanJam @ RMAF is included! (I suggest buying in advance to avoid the line.)

 

 

 

For the fourth year in a row, we will be hosting a CanJam event at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (CanJam @ RMAF).  For those of you not familiar with Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, it is thought by many to be one of the finest consumer high-end audio shows in the world.  And this year, CanJam @ RMAF will also serve as the 2012 International Head-Fi Meet, so we expect even more high-end headphone audio goodness than ever before!
 
Is there a DAC, computer audio gear, turntable, CD player, loudspeaker, or any other type of high-end audio component you want to hear?  Chances are it'll be at RMAF.  You’ll also be able to enjoy great music, discussion panels and keynotes, and, of course, the camaraderie of having thousands of like-minded audio geeks in the same place for a whole weekend!  To see a list of companies exhibiting at RMAF 2012, click on this link (as of this writing, many of the CanJam @ RMAF exhibitors are not yet on this list).
 
CanJam @ RMAF will once again be hosted in the Rocky Mountain Event Center ballroom (giving us over 12,000 square feet to showcase headphone audio gear from around.  Exhibitors this year will include (and this list is not final):

Cause 'Murica! That's why.

 

But seriously..good question.

 

Wait nope nevermind. I was thinking about how so many makers were there and it was easier for international people but the thing is...THE LANGUAGES......is the huge problem. Not only is Head-Fi's main people English speaking...it's Murica. Get a European festival for everyone and man........

Good music surpasses language barriers!

It wouldn't be THAT much of a problem actually. A lot of people speak English, and if they don't then I'm sure you'd still be able to communicate some way or another.


The main problem would be getting enough people. The majority of the people on head-fi are in the US, so it's easiest getting a lot of people.

Right now I'm trying to organize a Netherlands/Belgium meet, and It's going to be tough to even find 20-30 people. And that's an entire two countries combined!

You guys speak the same language?...sorry. Murican ignorance of European countries languages here....and your countries are next to each other? I imagined Belgium being near France? And you guys near Norway and Germany.

Belgium is split in to two parts. Flanders and Wallonia. The former is Dutch-speaking, the latter French speaking.
Belgium is bordering both the Netherlands and France. Since Belgium is not very big, France is also pretty close to the Netherlands.


We aren't really near Norway. Have to cross a sea first. UK is much closer. Even Denmark is closer than Norway.

Germany is also bordering our country.

Don't feel bad, by the way.

I have absolutely no idea where most of the States are. Before going there recently it was even worse.

I'm going into a European History class this year. I will now learn to shut my mouth the moment ANY geography on Europe comes up. Oh and you just blew my mind.

 

Back to the original article.

I wonder if FiiO would be interested. They had just recently posted about going to some American conventions and new conventions they will be at. I'll ask James if he doesn't already know...if it's not too late.

This is high end audio and anyone that would go probably won't be in the $200 section but hey, Head-Fi right?

Monster & Koss!

People can say what they want about Monster (I only use my Beats By Dre Solos as a headset w/ my iPhone - but I expected them to be bass-heavy, considering their target audience - anyway...), but that is a great sign of breakthrough for all of you here on Head-fi!  That includes Jude and his crew, as well as all of you guys, the users, it's a huge accomplishment for EVERYBODY.

 

and Koss - well, talk about personal audio history...

 

I also hear HRT will be displaying again this year.  Excellent!  I was proud to be on their team, as well as CEntrance, and am glad to hear they'll be back.

 

Gonna be fun this year!  I get to go and write about it again, not being tied to a booth will be a great change of pace (like what I used to do).

 

Beerfest still goin down on Saturday????

The IEM line of Monster is actually fairly popular on head-fi.


And Koss is especially recently very big in head-fi with their electrostatic line.

Monster being there would be a nice thing to see on head fi. Monster and Beats had a split by the way.

 

Monster makes expensive cables and many people actually have never tested them or heard them for obvious reason so with so many high end audiophiles there and Monster's own demonstrations it would be interesting.

Looking forward to it!
