1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    CAS9 has come and gone. It was a wonderful sunny weekend in Oakland, California for one of the States' more "intimate" HI-Fi shows. Quality over quantity was/is the watchword, with attendees feeling no pressure to run from room to room and there being ample time for them to talk with the manufacturers/designers/company representative and their fellow attendees as well.

    Here are some show Dagogo show reports:


    and from the Audio Beatnik (the first five posts are all CAS9 related)


    I shall endeavor to share more and more from the States with my Fishies across the pond(s).

    this is most likely due to my lack of reading comprehension, but is the first sentence (quoted below) actually a sentence? if so, could you parse it for my simple mind? thanks.

    The California Audio Show is not looking to be the next Munich or AXPONA. It is looking to maintain its intimacy, and not grow for the sake of growing where its charm and genial nature are sacrificed. Holger Adler of Voxativ Acoustic Technologies and an exhibitor this year put it best:

    “My personal impression of the show was how Constantine Soo and his partners: Byron Baba, David Blumenstein, and Doug Schroeder created a feeling that is simply the meeting of old and good friends who like each other. I enjoyed my stay very much and I will be back next year with Voxativ Acoustic Technologies.”

    We, at CAS, want it to always be that way, as it has been, as it is, and as it will be. Not so big that you have to race around to see everything, not so big that interactions with exhibitors and fellow attendees seem rushed and inorganic.

    And it was not meant to be a sentence, that would have been a fortunate happenstance. It was yet another method of intriguing readers/fishies.

    Thanks for asking.
