post #1 of 91
Thread Starter 

The dates are April 12 - 14 at The New York Palace Hotel Manhattan NY. 

 

 

1000

 

If there a Head-Fi get together planned? It will be my first Audio show and I am looking forward to being there.

 

I think we will see a lot of musicians and people from the music business at the Audio show as 4/12 and 4/13 happen to be the dates for Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival I have tickets (lucky me) anyone else going from Head-Fi?

I went last year. If you like audio gear, it will be awesome. It's that simple.  Where else can you listen to hundreds of thousands of $ of audio equipment (single rooms were filled with small fortunes), set up by  manufacturers/real professionals, all day, for $20? I think I got $20 of free audio magazines the second I walked in, along with a show magazine that detailed exactly what each vandor was showing in each room, and a map of the whole place.

 

For headphone stuff, last year Woo Audio was there with all of their amps and a nice selection of TOP of the line headphones. You could just wander around and mix and match as you desired. It was crazy. I honestly couldn't believe they had all that expensive, small gear just laying around like that.

 

As for regular hi-fi stuff, listening to gear like KEF Blades, YG Kipod 2/Anat, Wilson Sashas hooked up to VTL monoblocks, etc. simply blew my mind. Some of the more popular rooms had lines, but I think I waited in line for maybe 30min all day.

 

There are also a bunch of media guys walking around so if you ever wanted to walk up and have a chat with a guy like John Atkinson, this is your chance. There are also sure to be head honchos from various brands.

Wow, I am excited now. I will read Sterophile's coverage. I'm a headphone stuff kinda guy and was worried there might be slim pickings, thanks for posting!
