6 Great Audio Demos

There were many great product demos at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. We present the best of the best.

Those new to the custom electronics industry may not realize that the roots of the market are deep in two-channel audio.

As the popularity of home theater and fringe technologies like home control and automation grew in sophistication, the visibility of two-channel audio diminished.

But a funny thing has happened in today’s age of gaming and digital media: the cyclical nature of pop culture has swung back in favor of two-channel audio. No where is this in greater evidence than the sometimes overzealous audiophile market.

The audiophile crowd’s signature event is the annual Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF). This event has grown exponentially since its debut in 2004, and this year RMAF organizers claim attendees had access to more than 400 brands in over 170 rooms.

The show was refreshing; attendees were excited to see, hear and revel in everything audio. Despite the spotty performance of some of the systems due to poor room acoustics, there were many product demonstrations that were great.
