    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?

    Yes.

    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.

    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'.
