Wynn Audio – Axpona 2018

First time I’ve seen the Thales turntables. Nice.

It was an hour before closing, many people had gone home.

High Fidelity Cables – Axpona 2018

The other High Fidelity Cables room was locked, and this one had several classic ‘science discovery toys’ on display along with several ‘scantily clad women’ [ sorry, no photo 😉 ]. Depending on who you are, this was either THE room to see, or THE room to avoid, wildly inappropriate, or… geez, probably several other ways to react to all this. Me? I wanted to check out the ‘science discovery toys’ but instead continued on my ‘photographing way’ to the next room.
