Axpona 2024 who is going and why?


AXPONA - Audio Expo North America

Join music lovers and audiophiles from around the world as they descend upon the nation’s largest showcase of manufacturers and retailers ever assembled in one venue only at AXPONA.

I booked flight and hotel reservation for Axpona 2024 last night.

This is my first time to Axpona.

My prime target will be

1. Aris Cerat which I had not listend myself.

How good is Aurora and theire Dac and elextronice?

2. MBL

I like theiir 101E which sounds very musical but wish to listen to therir larger model.

3. Martin Logan

It had been a while since I listened to Martin Logan, thus want to have update on their electrostatic speakers.

4. Clarisis speakeer

I wnat to find out how good this planar speaker is.

5. Wof von Langa

I wish to get a filed coild speakers most likely original or replica of Western Electric.

But I als want to find out how good it is.

I had also got very good impression of Songer Audio field coil units.

It will be nice if Voxactive also display field coil unts.

Theoretica Applied Physics BACCH-SP adio Stereo Purifier - The Absolute Sound

Theoretica Applied Physics BACCH-SP adio Stereo Purifier - A Princeton professor of physics has spent decades figuring out how to make stereo sound more realistic. Now, with the “Band-Assembled Crosstalk Cancellation Hierarchy” (BACCH) processor, you can hear stereo imaging as never before...

I have serious interest in this cross talke cancelling unit and Dac.

I wish to find out the effect myself.

There could be unexpected suprise as ohter audio show. ;)

I had lived in Chicago from 1998 to 2001 whete my son was born.

I had enjoyed nice audio shops over there.

I bought my Apogee Duetta Sig driven by Krell KSA 150.

It is one of the most musical audio system through my 45 years of Audiophile.

having been to Chicago 3 times this year already, it's almost weird to miss it. But I will be excited to watch and read the reports.

Shkong ( Thomas) Ok 1 pm Saturday 2nd floor lobby across those elevators and bars. I will put  Jayctoy on my right chest .





Just in case my phone no is


three 6 zero

nine 4 one

four 0 six 0

I look forward to seeing you then.





If you have the time, go and listen to the RAAL 1995 Magna and Immanis headphones at Axpona. I just heard it earlier today. The same headphone that is going to Axpona. I took my RAAL VM-1a amp to hear them and this same model amp was shipped to Axpona yesterday. I have 1 tube that is different, but what will be at Axpona is almost the same as what I heard.

This thing was so good that I am trying to figure out what to put up for sale tonight to get this phone. I need to get another job.

I am a 2-channel person, and headphones were never my thing, however, go have a listen and judge for yourself. The phones I heard today are going to The Absolute Sound and Stereophile after Axpona. Just spectacular sound.



I will be attending this year. I have never been to an audio show, so I want to see the spectacle. But the main reason is to hear the signature sound of more equipment, especially speakers. I have been living in the KEF world for a long time, and I am satisfied, but I have a list of speakers I want to hear when I am there. I realize that you can't get a true demo of speakers in that environment, but just looking to get a feel for the sound of the ones on my list and probably a few I don't know about. 

@blisshifi I will be driving down from Duluth, I will try to stop by the DH booth and say hi!
