We will NOT be showing at Capital Audiofest this weekend. Although D.C. looks good at the moment, previously quiet places like the Bay Area and Colorado are seeing Covid upticks and we just think it is too soon to be gallivanting through hotel rooms crowded with friendly audiophiles in such unpredictable times. To say nothing of spending several hours in an actual airplane to get there and back. We send our apologies to all our East Coast friends, and to the wonderful Capital Audiofest show organizers, and hope to see y’all next year.
We currently have three systems up and running here in Palo Alto and are occasionally hosting masked audiophiles who we have good reason to believe aren’t completely daft.
