2013 CanJam @ RMAF (Oct. 11-13, 2013): One of the world's finest headphone audio shows! - Page 9

I live less than ten minutes from where RMAF is held and we were essentially unaffected by the rains. CanJam will definitely be a go, full speed! I always enjoy seeing the Westone presence given their shop is basically just a hour down the road.

this is GREAT NEWS!

I've been so busy working w/ Marjorie (knowing her home is safe) that I didn't even ask the most obvious question!
Is the Denver Tech Center OK????
 
Thanks for the update @Bazirker (killer tag btw - pulled from Clerks??)

Btw, one other note for those traveling in from out-of-state: anyone that might be planning on heading to Estes Park or the surrounding area, or Northern Colorado, should cancel those plans, as the recent flooding effectively cut off access due to severely damaged roads & bridges. Some areas are also still heavily flooded and may take a long time to clear. I got off lucky where I am, with only a flooded basement and leaky roof (which have both been largely rectified now). Denver and its suburbs weren't as badly affected, so RMAF should still be a go.

 

 

Any issues with I25 north of Denver due to the flooding?  I will be coming to Denver via I80 and I25.

I-25 should be ok now (it was temporarily flooded at multiple points between 470 and Fort Collins, but cotrip.org is reporting it's clear now). Not sure about I-80, I heard that parts of Wyoming were flooded as well.

I'm going to try to make it, my first event of this type. Can anyone confirm if vendors are allowed to sell gear on site? And if so, is that a common thing or no? I'm wondering if I should make plans to come home with some extra gear. Anyone have experience with this? Maybe some good demo-pricing available?

My understanding is that some of them will be selling at the show, with some having special show discounts.

 

Holy cats!!! I just realized it is only two weeks away!!!  Wow time flies...

I feel like there are too many words on it for a flyer and would be open to ideas for reducing the word count: canjam.pdf

 

Students get discounts?

Not every vendor sells gear, but some of them do. Won't hurt to ask a vendor in person at the show, of course. Moon Audio is one of the few vendors who looks to sell almost everything that they bring at show discount pricing - the cables, sources, amps, headphones, you name it. If you want to buy anything on their table, they'll probably happily sell it. And some of the custom IEM vendors offer show discount pricing and free earmold impressions, like Ultimate Ears and Westone.

 

Selling isn't common though and the majority of vendors bring "display-only" equipment that they don't want to sell. For example, don't ask HeadAmp if you can buy the display BHSE or GS-X MK2 because those will be display-only units. :p Moon Audio is an exception though, mostly because they're a retailer, not a manufacturer.

 

Also keep in mind that whatever you buy from Moon Audio will be removed from their table - which means sticking around until the end of the show on Sunday to buy it. Otherwise they could have a gaping hole in their display system somewhere on Friday or Saturday which they obviously wouldn't want. ;) (None of the vendors bring extra stock specifically to sell. The show is a "try-before-you-buy" environment, not a store.)

Thanks for the KILLER avatar @warrenpchi

You're the man, and a good friend.

 

Which is why I'm PUMPED you're coming to CanJam at RMAF!!

 

I see lots of time cuttin' it up and listening to music in our future!

Latenight hotel room listening sessions and discussion threads as the result...

 

and WELL SAID @MacedonianHero

 

one of the few regrets that eats at me often:

Never going to college (well, a year and a half of community college hardly counts)

but at least I've worked hard enough in my specialized field where I can get those lovely audio toyz!

 

and PLENTY of audio toyz to explore at CanJam this year!!!!

Wish I could go this year, but too much going on (again) with family and work. Looking forward to your impressions (and hopefully a lot of photos). :smile:
