Newport Beach show any one going?

would like to hear about the show in Newport Beach
I will be there Friday and Saturday helping the Alma Audio team in their Avantgarde room.
Check my system page as the AvantGarde Duo Mezzos will be playing with AudioPax 50 W monoblocks.

This combo sounded stunning in my living room and if its that good at the show it will be well worth a listen.

Silvio from Audiopax is coming up from Brazil for the show.

AudioPax has a huge cult following in Brazil and Alma Audio is bringing the line back to the US as the distributor.

Alma Audio is also the only AvantGarde dealer on the west coast stocking the Duo line for demo. There is a NCal dealer who has Zeros, but if you want to hear Duo Mezzos, Duo Omegas or Zeros in SoCal, please PM me.

I flew down on Saturday just for the day. The Irvine Hotel was also having a show of exotic cars (Lamborgini, Ferrari)and the hotel had both in many rooms together. I particularly liked the headphone room (although Oppo was a no-show?). I was surprised at how good the Hifiman headphones sound. Especially the new HE1000. The $3000 price tag will force me to give them serious consideration when they arrive next month. No, I have no connection with any headphone maker. In fact, they had Stax phones on display (similar to mine) just for comparison and it confirmed, for me, why I have never looked to replace them.

If you like this hobby, I recommend going next year. It's $15 well spent and you'll be thoroughly entertained for the time that you're there. Unfortunately, I had to catch a late plane and felt that I would like to have stayed longer.
