I always enjoy the Zu Audio room because they play real music and always get good sound (they use turntables as source). Their Omen Dirty Weekend [Mk.II] speakers (the smaller ones) are $999/pair (that's less than a thousand dollars)

Sometimes my focus on all things digital feels, well, incomplete. After all, you cannot make music with Computer Audio; you need other stuff. So show coverage covering just file-based playback is. . . limited. So to speak. And let's clarify something—show coverage is not a review. I've seen product endorsement adverts quoting show coverage and thought to myself, "That's a reach."

Just between you & me, the main reason I wanted to attend the Capital Audiofest was to hear this panel. "What does this have to do with computer audio?" I heard someone think. It has everything to do with computer audio.

I am very excited to be heading down to Rockville, MD for my first time attending the Capital Audiofest. The show promises nearly 60 exhibition rooms filled with things whose sole purpose in life is to make us happy.
