    Just got an e-mail from the event organizers. Sure enough, there's an app for that!

    Haven't tried it yet. Here's an excerpt from the e-mail:


    Navigate AXPONA from your phone! Get the App: iOS and Android devices search your app store for AXPONA or visit here https://crowd.cc/s/2wRIg on your mobile device.? Blackberry or Windows phones need to use the web version found here: https://crowd.cc/axpona19 To access the web version, visit https://crowd.cc/axpona19

    Make a plan
    There is so much to see and hear at AXPONA with a lot of ground to cover. So my best advice is to plan ahead so you can set your pace, plan for breaks and move smoothly through the venue. We suggest picking a floor and working your way down, or picking one side of the convention center to start on and work your way across. You can use this preview of the floorplan or the Mobile App to plan ahead

    I look forward to seeing you at the show!

    Saying Giordano's is the best, stuffed, pizza is a bit of a leap (in my humble opinion) but it appears to be close to the venue so that makes it a great candidate for those not well versed in Chicago-style pizza. Enjoy it folks!

    Lou Malnati's is a few miles away but thats deep dish and not stuffed. Moretti's and the other Chicago chain places are close.

    I wish Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder  or
    pequod's pizza were closer

I also got the new Audio Advisor monthly catalog and see they only have the Cambridge 851N listed don't see the CXN V2 offered anymore I wonder why? I plan on going to the Cambridge room any way, I also plan on visiting the Auralic room, and the ELAC room their streamer is getting good reviews I got a lot of rooms in my list I hope Saturday and Sunday is enough time.
