Hey Everyone - AXPONA starts this Friday! Based on the current AXPONA thread going on in the forum, some personal emails, and last year's show I'm very much looking forward to attending. Sure the new products and crazy systems will be interesting but the best part about all audio shows is the people.
The highlight of the show for me will be getting together with members of the CA Community. With this in mind, we need to set a date, time, and place for everyone to meet. The best day for me is Saturday. I believe the show ends at 6:00 PM. I'd love to do it after the show, but I have dinner reservations and I'd only be able to hang around for a short period of time.
[UPDATED DETAILS BELOW] I propose we meet around 5:00 PM Saturday. I'm open to any of the locations within the hotel. It can be a bar, restaurant, open space etc...
Here is a link to the options - http://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel-information/restaurant/chirs-renaissance-schaumburg-convention-center-hotel/
Please leave a comment with your suggestions and I'll update this article with final details. This way if there are any last minute changes for whatever reason, people can check this article for the details rather than swimming through comments.
As usual I am behind in my review schedule and have a fair amount of components here in line waiting. However, I like to be proactive and get things lined up in advance. In addition, I really want to hear from the CA Community about which products you guys want reviewed. Trust me, I could pick out products from now until forever, but there's nothing better than crowdsourcing some of this stuff. I'm continually amazed at the research done and product knowledge of everyone here in the Community. Thus, let me know what you want reviewed on the front page and I'll do my best to make it happen.
