I will have two rooms - 321 and 616 I believe. One room will be the Rosso/Norma gear with Caprice Audio and the other will be Rosso paired with Thrax separates.

Okay, CAF is just under a month away. And from what I can gather from my itinerary I'm going to be at the Hilton by 3:00 PM on Thursday, November 10, 2022. No doubt others on WBF will be attending Capital Audio Fest this year, so how about those of us who meet face to face in the lobby ... a frightening prospect indeed :)

Let's see how many are interested in getting together before the show goes into full-swing. It will also be something to see how many of us set up our respective Roon ARC connections so if it comes down to it we can play music from our own personal libraries at the show. Talk about raising the bar on audience participation :)

Won't hold "just being an attendee" against you, then again we've yet to meet :)
There ought to be a WBF Flag for just such meetups at hifi shows

I will be in Room 623, representing a new loudspeaker company named Illusio Audio. We will be showing our first product, the Alana stand-mount speaker with stand (the stand is a critial part of the system). The Alana is a team effort which is much more of a high-end design than my previous products under my AudioKinesis brand. Four small-footprint subwoofers will supply the bottom two octaves.

This will be our first Capital Audio Fest, and we're starting with a bang, with 5 rooms!

So, look us up in Rooms 530, 532, 533, 534 and 537.

In Room 537, we're hosting Philip O'Hanlon and his Midrange Magic setup (Graham/Moonriver/Bergmann/Artesania), with a guest harpist!

In Room 530, we'll have the gorgeous Qln Signatures with Nagra Classic pre/power. Sources will be MSB Premier with the Innuos Statement Next-Gen feeding it the bits. Gigawatt power conditioner will certainly help with challenging hotel AC!
