    Is Judy coming Russ ? I'm asking because I want to know which manners to bring with me. :)

    Looks like PS Audio has some interesting things planned for Axpona:

    "Axpona marks the World Premiere of PS Audio's AN speakers, based on work by our friend and mentor, the late Arnie Nudell, founder of Infinity Systems and Genesis Technologies. PS will show a state-of-the art system featuring DirectStream DAC and Memory Player, BHK Signature preamp and mono amps, P20 Power Plant regenerators, and the AN3 loudspeakers, the smallest of the AN line.

    All AN speakers will feature built-in powered servo subwoofers, Air Motion Transformer midrange and tweeter drivers, and DSP to allow for maximum flexibility in use. The top model AN1 will be a serious contender for state-of-the-art, challenging the best loudspeakers made. As always with PS Audio products, the AN series will outperform products at several times their price."
    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    No. The past few years have been a long, winding road with more orange barrels than I-35.

    LMAO, I'm not near as bad as John portrays me to be.

    Speaking of...what days are you guys going ? Sat....I might make it in the morning but I have a baby shower to go to from 2-5 in Hoffman estates which is down the road. Maybe we can hook up for dinner on Sat. I have Russ's number, few of you guys have mine. Text me with the plans for Sat. night.

    Ideally I would like to photograph and write a brief review of all 185+ rooms. I'm just not sure if it is going to be possible though.

    Just keep the reviews down to three words or less. Jesse is a pro at that. Maybe he can help.
