    AXPONA 2017: Analog Sources and Electronics under $15k




    Dre
    "Armed with a bag of 20 LPs, a ¼” 15ips 2nd-generation mastertape of Crazy Joe’s The Doctor Is In! album, and a ¼” 15ips compilation tape filled with direct copies of my vinyl front-end, I started visiting rooms from Day One until the bell rang ending the show on Sunday afternoon."

    Every day is a good day to play analog.
    - 12" 33-1/3 RPM or 45 RPM vinyl
    - 10.5" 15ips or 30ips tape

        Thanks Andre for your impressions. Just reminded me of how big the show was and how little time there was to cover all the products. They need a fourth day just for press.

          I'd have to agree. A fourth day (press or not) would have been useful for more time to cover the rooms. With two different category assignments to cover, the show was a challenge this year.
