  • Capital Audiofest 2018

    Now that RMAF is over, the audio show world (US at least) moves to the East Coast.

    Who's going to CAF this year? I am planning on being in DC the whole show but may not be around as much as usual. I am bringing one daughter and we are doing a few tours in DC.

    Beau

    PS I will also be at the NYC show the next week but that's an easy subway ride for me!

          CAF hands down. Almost 3x the size.

            I'd say CAF as it's bigger and I know a lot more of the vendors/organizers so it's a fun experience.

            While it's easy to pile on the NYC show I hope a phoenix rises out of the ashes.
