Capital Audio Fest 2022 Video Part 1

Better late than never

Last November's Capital Audio Fest coverage appears here more than two months late. Very sorry about that. Fortunately, this kind of coverage doesn't date—at least not in two months—so please enjoy. Part 2 will soon post.

The show was well supported by manufacturers, retailers and the usual dreamers and hobbyists as well as by a large group of used record dealers. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. What started out as a small, kind of intimate annual hobbyist gathering has morphed into a strong regional audio show.

Add Seattle's Pacific Audio Fest, The Florida International Audio Expo, Audio Advice's open to all Raleigh show, and AXPONA, and you have shows across the country running February, April, June and November. Add a September show in Austin, Texas (just a fantasy) and there'd be a show every few months that together blanket the country.

I'm writing this from the Florida International Audio Expo. Hopefully video coverage from this show will post more quickly. Onward!
