As part of CanJam 2014, we are holding a Scavenger Hunt and Giveaway (SHaG), where you can win amazing audio gear. Here's how it works:
 
  1. You must pick up a SHaG card at CanJam @ RMAF. This card will fit in your event badge holder. Keep in mind that we will only have a limited number of cards (2000).
  2. The SHaG card will have the logos of the exhibitors participating in the CanJam SHaG on it.
  3. As you make your way through CanJam, make sure to stop by each and every participating exhibitor (again, identified by their logos on the SHaG card). Each SHaG exhibitor you visit can validate their logo on your card (with either a specially designated punch or stamp). We are encouraging the SHaG exhibitors to only validate your card after you have given a sincere listen/audition at their exhibit, or some other task for you to complete there.
  4. Once your SHaG card is completely validated by every SHaG exhibitor, turn it in at the Head-Fi table in the main CanJam exhibit area (the hotel ballroom called the Rocky Mountain Event Center). Your completely validated SHaG card will serve as your valid entry to win the SHaG prizes donated by the SHaG exhibitors.
  5. Winners will be chosen at random from the valid entries, and the winners notified after the event (if we are unable to notify the winners at CanJam), and the prizes shipped directly by the participating SHaG exhibitors.
  6. Only one completed SHaG entry card per attendee is allowed.
  7. There is a maximum of one prize per valid SHaG entry.
  8. CanJam exhibitors and their staff are ineligible.
 
We did something sort of similar at a previous CanJam @ RMAF, and it was a lot of fun, encouraged visits to the participating exhibitors, and resulted in a lot of amazing prizes won by attendees. The California (SoCal and NorCal) Head-Fi Meet organizers @warrenpchi and @third_eye evolved this giveaway model further, which inspired this year's CanJam SHaG.
 
So what are the prizes? Here is the current list, which may be added to over the next couple of days:
 
  1. Abyss Headphones & JPS Labs: JPS Labs Superconductor V USB cable 1.0 meter (x3), valued at $699.00 each.

And since several of you have been asking what the card looks like (i.e. how many validation stamps you'll need and from whom), here is a preview of what your SHaG validation card looks like:
 


 
Cool Tip:  Great care has been taken to make sure that this card fits into your name badge holder, so that you can store it there when not in use - but also to have it within easy reach when you do need it.
 
If you haven't already made your plans to attend Rocky Mountain Audio Fest and CanJam @ Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, there's still plenty of time to do so. Make sure to visit www.audiofest.net for more information, and to register for Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (admission for which gets you into CanJam).
 
Since I'm not eligible to win any of this, I hope you do! See you there!

There's a very technical term in the marketing industry that describes all the information we've been seeing about the Mo-Fi. Umm, starts with an h and ends with ype. :)
 
I look forward to actually seeing it. I was rather disappoint at the teaser they had at CES, so seeing and hearing it will be cool. Might be the first place I go on the first day so I can avoid the crowds!

My part of that video was shot last winter, so you can imagine there was almost nothing I was allowed to say about it back then (or now, for the moment). I'm guessing that the other two gentlemen were also asked not to say much specific about Mo-Fi.
 
Yes, at CES there was little revealed. They've done a great job keeping this one under wraps.
 
We'll be talking about it soon, though.
 
I look forward to seeing you in Denver, Allan.
