Warsaw Audio Video Show 2022 Video Day One Video Coverage

Focus on the vibrant Polish Audio Scene

Following a two year Covid halt, the Warsaw Audio Video Show returned with a vengeance in 2022. The crowds all three days were large (perhaps record-setting), enthusiastic and as usual the demographic skewed young and family-oriented. Not at all the older, mostly male crowd seen at most American audio shows. The Warsaw show was definitely a family affair. As usual, the Sobieski Radisson Hotel was where the epicenter of the vibrant Polish audio scene, as was to a lesser extent the across the street "Golden Tulip" hotel. That's the focus of day one's coverage. You'll see many unfamiliar brands and the interesting products they produce. Day two's coverage, upcoming, was shot at the sports arena where larger, mainstream audio companies held sway in a festive atmosphere. At both venues vinyl vendors did a bisque business. editor Michael Fremer conducted an hour-long turntable setup seminar each show day to SRO crowds Friday and Saturday to a smaller group late Sunday afternoon. Day two's video will post shortly. There's plenty to see here
