All prices in US dollars unless indicated otherwise
Not that many years ago, it was fairly easy to overlook turntables at any given audio show, since digital was where it was at. And although most audiophiles still play back their music digitally, whether through streaming or on disc, vinyl has gotten so big and relevant again you’d be a fool not to see what’s new. Below are some of the turntables and related products I saw at RMAF 2018 that I thought worth highlighting. All prices in USD.
I’ll wrap up my coverage of the 2018 CanJam RMAF headphone show, which took place over the weekend at the Denver Marriott Tech Center, with a discussion of a few of the new headphone amps I saw at the show. Amps aren’t my focus, so this will be a rather limited selection; if you’re a headphone amp manufacturer and I didn’t cover you, let me know and I’ll catch you next time.
For the 2018 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, SoundStage! founder Doug Schneider and I decided to split up the speaker coverage -- because there were a lot of new speakers at the show. You may have already read Doug’s coverage. Here’s mine, with all prices in USD.
Here’s more of my coverage of new headphones from CanJam RMAF 2018, part of the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest taking place this weekend at the Denver Marriott Tech Center hotel. You can read my first round of coverage here. All prices in USD.
I think it’s safe to say that speakers make the biggest difference in sound in any system. I think it’s also safe to say that you’ll never find two sets of speakers that sound exactly alike, even if they look almost the same. As a result, speakers are oftentimes the easiest to cover -- with so many shapes and sizes and differences in technologies and sound, it’s always really easy to find something interesting.
CanJam RMAF, part of the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) taking place this weekend at the Denver Marriott Tech Center hotel, is probably the number-one consumer audio show in the US when it comes to introductions of new headphones, earphones, and headphone amps. Here are some of the coolest earphones I found at the show, with all prices in USD.
Unlike the last time I was at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF), in 2013, hi-fi electronics were plentiful at this year’s show. I easily found more than enough to cover, spanning all price ranges, which are quoted below in USD.
I haven’t been to Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) since 2013. That year, RMAF was so lacking in new products -- or any really interesting products, actually -- that we left halfway through the second day to go see Captain Phillips at a nearby movie theater. After our stint at RMAF 2013 completed, I vowed not to go back and instead spend our time covering shows elsewhere.
The Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF), one of the biggest consumer audio shows in North America, kicked off Friday, October 5, at noon in Denver, Colorado. Part of the Audio Fest is the CanJam RMAF headphone show, which packs (by my rough estimate) about 70 headphone, headphone amp, and headphone accessory companies into a single large ballroom at the Denver Marriott Tech Center. I spent most of the afternoon there, listening to as many new headphones and earphones as I could. Here’s the first batch of interesting headphones I found. All prices in USD.
