AK Fest 2009, Analog?

Anyone going to AK FEST?

Does this show have analog setups similar to RMAF?

Is it worth the drive from Southwest Ohio to Michigan?

last year most rigs were an Ipod or computer plus external DAC for source. There were CD players and analog rigs but they were in the minority. There were still many worthwhile rooms, in 5+ hours I did not have the time to see everything I wanted. Most of the rigs were good - not great but some were very good indeed. You can go to their website to see what is on display this year. I do not know RMAF.

worthwhile to drive there? I am driving 2+ hours this year no problem and look forward to it.

AK Fest can be a great time. Last year there were several fellow Cincinnatians in attendance. Unfortunately this year I can't make it.

You might want to post in the Cincinnati club forum to see if anyone you know is planning to attend this year. I do know that our friend Larry Moore is attending because he is listed as one of the speakers...

I'm hoping to make it, mostly so I can see Larry Moore face to face to take up the fact that he refuses to honor our agreement on a Musicstream DAC he sold me. He has refused to return any emails or phone calls, so I have no choice but to go see him in person.
Thanks for the info.

I think I'll pass on this one.
