I don't enjoy tooting my own horn, but I'm quite proud of my performance at AXPONA this year and received my first 'Best of' award for a big show. I didn't get many reviewers in the room but got GREAT feedback from those that did. I know I'm currently a small player in this world so getting this kind of coverage at a show with so many exhibitors is a great honor.

Rosso Fiorentino has recently released their second generation of speakers and the improvements are major steps up. AXPONA was the debut of this new series.

Also in the loop is Norma Audio. I became their distributor in January and have been nothing but impressed with their build and sound. Even competing dealers tell me how great the IPA-140 is, though at the show I used their previous generation separates. I did have their current DS-1 CD Player/DAC in the mix.

Positive Feedback was unable to make it to my room at AXPONA, but they did make it to my room at Lone Star Audio Fest. Eric Franklin Shook stated that it would have made his top five rooms at AXPONA had he been able to make it there.

I have always enjoyed Rosso Fiorentino speakers the few times I've been able to hear them ever since the 1st time at AXPONA 2011 (the Sienna I believe). They are truly great speakers...well done!
