  • Axpona Day One: Crowds Set Records For Attendance

    I’ve been totally overwhelmed by the size of the show and trying to cover all the rooms. Industry turnout was as Andre commented like RMAF pre-renovation. Only with far more consumer turnout. According to Liz Miller of JD Events, there were 162 rooms at Axpona 2018. Consumer attendance on Friday was simply unbelievable: It seemed like a Saturday. The halls and rooms at the Schaumburg Renassaince Convention Center Hotel were jammed. I’m pretty sure that Axpona attendance records will be smashed this year. Axpona has firmly established itself as THE US high-end show.

    So onto to some pictures around the show.

    Paragon SNS room with Doshi electronics, Brinkmann turntable, DCS digital and Studer 810 plus Doshi V3.0 tapestage and Wilson Audio Sasha 2s. Nick's new hybrid, 2 gain stage stereo amplifier acquitted itself well regardless of source.

      Speakers had just arrived from the factory but the Quintessence room with Alexia 2s, ARC electronics, AMG table and DS Audio cartridge sounded great. Very clean, controlled and palpable. The self biasing M160s are really sexy looking with that transparent meter.

          These also sounded very good and despite playing in a huge room (by volume...25ft ceilings) had no problem filling the room without effort.

        Paragon SNS room with Wilson XLFs with D'Agostino electronics. Seemed like that wonderful Clearaudio table was an afterthought rather forethought here. Never seemed to be playing. All that they wanted to play was DCS digital.

        On the topic of digital. I had an opportunity for the very first time to compare two of Peter McGrath's raw, 24/88.2 digital files
        with the MQA encoded version (no provenance or remixing issues here.) By someone with no vested interest in the outcome.

        Hate to say this to the MQA haters but there was simply no comparison here. As good as the original digital files were, they were trounced in every way possible, from the top to the bottom of the frequency range.

        First was an recording of an acapella group of four women. Raw file: nice sense of space and ambience but an electronic glaze to the sound. Like running a mc cartridge wide open. Good sense of palpability and tone. MQA file: sheen gone and more realistic sense of voices floating in space. Much improved 3D as well as transparency.

        Second was Peter's Firebird recording. Same result with one interesting addition. The bass drum on the raw file sounded like a pop gun and lacked weight. The MQA file remedied this and added depth to the drum. No not bloating the bass but bringing it closer to the sound of a live drum.

        Conclusion. In this instance, MQA made a sizable improvement to an already well recorded piece. And broke down that barrier that kept the listener at arm's length from emotionally connecting to the music.

            The audio Company out of Atlanta with the same basic setup seen at Axpona and Capital Audiofest last year-but in a bit bigger and better room. Featured gear included VAC Statement 450IQ amps, Kronos table with Air Tight Opus 1 cartridge, J-Corder/Technics reel to reel tape deck and von Schweikert Ultra 11 speakers.

              Wynn Audio from Canada with a few of the multinational lines they represent including Karan electronics, Thales tables and arms, Metronome digital and Pen Audio speakers. Gotta love those pivoted-linear trackers!

                Some of the best vinyl I heard at the show. The sound in this room was smooth balanced effortless and full of detail.
                It was the kind of sound I really enjoy. Simply never fatigued my ears no matter what source was played (CD or vinyl) The engineering behind these tonearms are TOP NOTCH I would recommend it to anyone.

              One reissue I am waiting for based on the job MOFI did with Dire Straits BIA. Hopefully our later this year.

                Audience filing in for the "Meet the Editors" get together on Friday. Shockingly this was the first time the MTE forum has been held in 4 or 5 years. The panel consisted of David Robinson (mod and PF), Greg Weaver (TAS), Julie Mullen (TAS), myself (PF), Carol Clark (PF) and John Atkinson (SP). Great attendance and questions from the audience! Hoping this forum becomes a regular staple once again at Axpona!

                  Unfortunately, I don’t think any of the sessions were recorded this year.

                  One of the best sounding rooms at Axpona! (bass performance in one way or another was really compromised across the show). GTT Audio and Bill Parrish put together a shock and awe system consisting of YG Acoustics Sonja XV Jr speakers, Kronos table and Air Tight Opus cartridge and Audionet's new and top Heisenburg line. No let down here. The speakers threw a wide and deep soundstage and had no trouble handling the depth, authority and dynamics Poulenc's Organ Concerto.

                  Very impressive demo of the new Pneupod equipment insulators! Big improvement in mid bass definition, dimensionality, resolution and spatiality. It didn't take golden ears to appreciate the improvement wrought by the Pneupods. Remember we are talking about solid-state electronics, not tubes here!

                    Myles, heard the same things with the Pneupods. I'm getting a set to try under my tape decks.
