I thought the Tidal/U-Clock duo sounded very good.
I also thought the Burmeister CD player sounded very good.
Music is the common language of humanity
I also liked the sound of the Playback Designs MPD-3 with native DSD files. The sound via the Evolution Acoustics was huge in room 1117.

Did Jonathan or Mike Spitz play the Louis Armstrong, St James Infirmary on 1/2" R2R
In all my years of listening this was about as close to live as I have ever heard. A most amazing demo coming from Jonathan's little MicroMini speakers which IMO remains the best deal around for book shelf speakers in this price range

I may be wrong, but compared to the 2008 RMAF, I believe the 2011 RMAF had a smaller number of rooms and was not as well attended. I remember the hallways being very crowded on Saturday at the 2008 event and the Hyatt having many more rooms. I'm sure the bad economy is to blame.
