    I was just looking at hotel rooms in Tampa and am pretty sure we are going.

    Does anyone know if the vendors sale equipment at these expos??

    Most rooms are not stocked with extra inventory, but when I attended Axpona a few years ago many of the vendors were mildly interested in selling the equipment they had demonstrated at the end of the show. (Saves shipping it home) Some of the headphone vendors did have stock to sell and there are usually vinyl sales and possibly cable sales. Also many times you can negotiate a purchase of equipment at a more favorable “show price” to be shipped to you.

    Thanks Doc.

    I sent Emotiva an email asking if they might be attending. They said they had no plans to attend at this time.

    You guys think one day is enough to see/hear everything you want???

    And im guessing the vendors there on one day will likely be the same the second day?

    Ditto. You got to take your time, get in trouble with a few of the guys, go back and make sure what you heard drunk the first day sounds as good hungover the second day. That's the mark of a truly quality piece of gear. Plus, Clearwater Beach is just 30 mins away.

    It’s free!? My word, this keeps getting better and better!
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    In a few days, it will be...
    NAD C352
    Monitor Audio Radius R90’s/Polk SDA CRS/Mission Freedom 770 IV
    BJC speaker cables, generic RCA’s
    Technics SL3200 turntable and a Shure M97xE phono cartridge
    Velodyne VA-907 subwoofer
    Lafayette LR-1100 acting as a tuner
    TCC-TC750 phono stage
    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
