Stereodesk http://stereodesk.com has signed up for two rooms at the CAF and has a great headphone lineup.

Anyone planning on going? I may go on Sunday....looks to be an all weekend event.

I plan to go one day this weekend, either tomorrow or Sunday...I need to check the schedule.

I was considering it, but I neglected to put in for leave so I likely won't be. Still might bend some rules and take off half of Friday to hit it. Love Silver Spring, love audio...

Just got home from the Audio Fest. I highly recommend attending. For the headphone minded - Stereodesk is there with a bevy of amps + portable players to try out. Woo Audio is also there with what seems like their entire lineup.

 

The Legacy Audio and Volti Audio rooms sounded especially good (to my ears). I didn't get to check out the Deja Vu or The Voice That Is rooms, but I might head back tomorrow. It's really too big to take in a day unless you really bolt in and out of the rooms.
 

The presentation given by Tom Perazella on what to look for in speakers and digital eq was really informative and engaging - luckily I stumbled across it not too long after it started. I meant to leave after about 15 minutes but decided to sit through the entire talk (about 1 hour).

 

It's my first time attending a show like this, but I had a lot of fun and met some cool people and listened to some nice sounding setups.

Thanks for the kind words and hope to see you all there. Reminder that students get in for free.

I will be there tomorrow and I might go on sunday as well considering what Yage has mentioned. 

 

@ Capitol Audio fest: Dillon beat me with a wooden spoon for calling the 12bh7 a 12ax7 and tried to give me a crash course in tubes, so hopefully I will not make a fool of myself again k701smile.gif

Sounds cool. I really enjoyed the headfi meet  in N.VA in May.

 

Is it fair to assume all the vendors will be there through Sunday?

 

Much Thanks!

post #28 of 33

question to guys who already attended, are you taking along your rig as we normally do on VA meets?

post #29 of 33

Nope - no need. First there's nobody that can guarantee security and second there's a lot of gear already there for audition that covers the gamut.

I agree and disagree with Yage. 

 

If you have a dac or amp.....leave it at home. 

 

However, it would not be the end of the world if you brought your headphones. I was able to test some woo audio amps with my own HD600s that they themselves did not have on display. So if you are planning on upgrading your gear anytime soon, I would say that it would not be a bad idea to bring headphones. However, be prepared to leave them in the car. 

 

Also, bring CDs and Vinyl. A lot of rooms will let you play your own music to test their stuff.
