Event Report - AudioVision SF 20th Anniversary Celebration

A few weeks ago, a local HiFi shop in San Francisco hosted a three day celebration to commemorate 20 years in business.

I attended the event on Saturday and wrote an article about my experience on The Audio Beatnik: https://theaudiobeatnik.com/audiovision-sfs-20th-anniversary-celebration-event/

It was basically a mini audio show, and I had a great time listening to the various systems. I only wish I had gone back on Sunday to hear the YG Acoustics speakers! Hope you enjoy the article.

    Wish I had a store do something cool like that in my neck of the woods. Great article Drew. Great pictures also. Well done.

    Nice write up Drew!

    Those cans would be a lot more comfy with contacts! I made the switch several years ago in my late 30s and it was great!

    Nice review Drew! Sounds like you had a great time! How did the Mrs like it? :)

    Thanks Dave, it was a lot of fun. She liked it more than she thought she would. Her favorite parts were listening to Abbey Road on the Gryphon setup, and trying the top of the line Audeze IEMs. She loves her new Audeze iSINE 10 earphones and mentions almost daily how good they sound.

    Yeah, I'm all too familiar with the difficulty of getting headphones that fit/feel right with glasses. Fortunately the ear pads on the Audeze headphones are very soft and supple, and as a result it wasn't an issue at all. I was pleasantly surprised by that!

    Hey now, don't be picking on my boy Russ. He doesn't know it, but he made a fan when my wife met him so he has 2 Italians on his side now. Just say the word Russ, Lea is a bit itchy these days.
