Vandersteens at RMAF 2016.
Musical Surroundings and The Audio Alternative were together with Vandersteen Model Seven MkII and a new subwoofer. Two turntables were shown, an AMG V12 Turbo, and Clearaudio Performance DC wood. Electronics were Audio Research, cables by AudioQuest, and racks by Harmonic Resolution Systems.
As usual, Philip O'Hanlon's On a Higher Note room sounded amazing. Featured were Kyomi Audio, Graham Engingeering/TechDAS, Magnan Cables, Lusman, and Vivid Audio.
Philip and Carol catch up.
Valve Amplification Company (VAC) and Fidelis A/V.
Zu Audio and Peachtree, this room sounded great. Lots of enthusiasm from both companies. Standout Room Winner.
Zu were making "Stolen from Zu Audio" t-shirts. Carol just looks sad because they didn't have her size.
Part of the CanJam was inside the hotel. Featured were Acoustic Research, AmpsandSound, Aqua-Acoustic Quality, AudioQuest, Brimar Audio Labs, CEntrance, Comply, DanaCable, Darin Fong Audio, E-MU Systems, Final managed by S'Next Co., Gingko Audio, Santa Cruz Audio, Sonic Studio, Stymax International, Voxx Accessories, and Wells Audio.
Michael Goodman of Centrance. They have a new product. This speaker can be used individually, or joined together so your music can follow you through your house! Super cool! Prototype is 3D printed.
More shots of CanJam.
Sonic Studio Amarra with ampandsound.
New Amarra is to be out soon... no longer tied to iTunes and works on either a Mac or PC. More ampandsound.
There were more CanJam exhibits outside.
VTL and Wilson Audio.
Steve Norber of Prana Fidelity had the best sense of humor! He had a static display, so Dave mentioned it would be funny if it was actually a static display. If you put your ear close to the speaker you heard actual static. Hidden away was an amp and an FM receiver tuned between stations. Love it!
Some of the displays in the Marketplace.
Arnold Martinez of Tweak Studio.
More exhibits in the Marketplace.
Chebon Littlefield of Mytek.
Due to constraints in the hotel, CanJam was mostly outside in a tent. It was close to the hotel, and aside from a few struggles, seemed to be a good venue.
Tyler from iFi Audio.
