WINNERS

[Not sure if this section of the report is redundant and/or extraneous, but here goes anyway...]

Audiophiles

Audiophiles were clear winners if they got to hear much of the equipment they have only previously been able to read about and from these experiences get a feel for where their own, personal preferences lie.

Industry

The Industry gets a nice venue, nicely situated between the coasts, at a reasonable expense to show off their wares to an avid, albeit small, population, and hobnob with others in the industry.

 

 

 

 

LOSERS

[Not sure if this section of the report is redundant and/or extraneous, but here goes anyway...]

Audiophiles

Audiophiles that were accosted in the hallways by over eager / desperate salespeople were losers - especially if they think these jerks are representative of the rest of the industry and so get turned off to high-end audio in general.

CES and the Stereophile Show

The central location, reasonable costs, and decent industry rag coverage are appealing to many exhibitors, and the atmosphere here is more music driven than CES or the Stereophile Shows. This means that exhibitors who feel they have to attend at least one show per year can just go to RMAF and ignore these other shows.

Industry

Make no mistake, even with a better  audiophile / population ratio than just about anywhere outside the Far East, the Denver area has only about 1/10th the population of LA or NYC to draw upon.
