Of course these changes make for an unsettled pre show feel, but I predict there will be plenty to see and hear. Can Jam in a tent may not be a bad thing - that is what it was at Newport Beach for several years. I think that the headphone world is now advanced enough to warrant individual rooms and a quieter evaluation environment than the big open ballroom.
CanJam 2009 in LA was a special event with it's small rooms and big hallways in which to stand and talk.
I am still planning to go, learn, and most importantly talk in person to the audio builders I respect and whose equipment I use.
I've gone to the show every year since it started. I was speaking to one of the vendors that will be exhibiting this year, and he was telling me that the show will probably be the smallest it's ever been. It sounds like a lot of the usual vendors will not be attending this year. I will go as always and I'm sure that I will have a good time but I used to go three days, then just two and last year only went one. Although I will attribute some of that to the fact that I get really tired walking as my years go by as well. I wish they would find another venue though, as the parking sucks.
there is actually a company called Horning that produces speakers - Danish company. here is the website:
I do hope all that are even thinking about attending an audio show do go to the upcoming Rocky Mountain Audiofest a week from tomorrow. There will be an overwhelming amount to see and hear. Plus it is a great opportunity to meet the people who design, build, and review this equipment.
My solution to getting from the airport to the hotels at the Denver Tech center is to use the Denver Limousine Service Co. They use a GMC Yukon that can hold 7 passengers + baggage. Plus they will provide free bottled water to your destination. I have used them the last three years without a hitch. The price is $65.00 inclusive 1-7 people each way. After the frazzle of the airplane flight I have found the limo ride to be well worth the the price for the peace and comfort they provide. To make a reservation text: 720-628-0592.
. Since there will be bunch of human traffic in/out= human body heat, will it be very hot in each rooms at the RMAF?
. With all that electronics turned on, via YouTube, I don't see Vendors even turned on A/C in their rooms ...
. Weather forcast shows 72/44F this weekend in Denver, Colorado but that's outside, so inside, is it still too warm for suits?
