You guys are the reason I got into this.
This community has been so gracious to me, especially given my background has been in high end audio! But I'm LOVING personal audio more than I ever did the high end, to be brutally honest. It's new ground!
But I gotta admit, as I told Jude, when I was approached to do this for T.H.E Show I didn't think I could pull it off without him (Jude)!
But he's been SLAMMED as always, so I knew I had to go it alone... I was intimidated! There are, IMO, too many high end audio
shows in the US, and I know most small companies can't afford to do all these shows! I went to the companies I know first, and then
got some others involved for different reasons (we got a DIY kit company there - to bring the DIY aspect back to this hobby at a show)
and it all fell together.
I could not have done any of this without the support of Jude and Marjorie at RMAF (my one boss for a week every year). He expressed his belief in my abilities to put together a cool event at T.H.E Show, given my passion for personal audio, and I'm grateful to him for that, amongst other things of course!
and I'm especially grateful to the Head-Fi community!
I should take a Head-Fi headcount - like Third Eye does for his regional event!
Thanks guys - from the bottom of my heart. Let's have some FUN!!!!
