    I've never heard of an audio show that has moved locations as many times as this one. Hopefully they have found a permanent home now.

    Hopefully. . Max for driving time for me is about 10hrs. I'll fly anywhere else.

    It's a shame Polk stopped doing the show. They were starting to make a name for themselves in the audiophile market. Really, really short sighted (stupid actually) on the part of DEI/Sound United.

    We had the LSiM 707's and 703's hooked up with MIT Cables. People would walk in and say, wow those sound really good. I didn't realize Polk made a speaker like that. The audio rags gave them very good reviews as well.

    Poor management decisions, IMO. Look at this format for another example. It seems they think CES is the only show that matters.....it's not!

    I don't know about you guys but I'm hoping that Technics are demoing their SB-C700 speakers at the show. Or even the tower version. :p Has anyone had the chance to listen to them?

    Maybe I'm missing something, but... Where/why do you want to hear a pair of center channels?

    I believe they had them at last years show.
    They were set up and playing music when I walked in.I didn't stay long only because I was there on the last day Sunday and we were trying to crash as many rooms as we could before the show ended.

    I missed CAF last year. I'll be attending this year and this will my 4th trip. :smile:

    Look forward to maybe running into a few Polkies there.
