While weeks and months ahead of us may provide a realistic measure of success National Audio Show 2011 achieved, we at Audiofreaks are very pleased with the number of visitors (many on more than one occasion) to our little syndicate suite within the Whittlebury Hotel. A radical detour from our usual approach to sources - read: HRT Music Streamer II+ and a Windows 7 driven laptop containing WAV and AIFF files (with music) instead of either the LP or CD playback system - was most certainly worth the chance taken. Accompanied by a number of not terribly expensive new products from Avalon Acoustics, conrad-johnson, Magnum Dynalab and Cardas Audio, the show system performed well and received good acclaim and positive comments from the public, trade and numerous members of the audio press who came to visit us.
Next year should be our 25th anniversary of the company and, equally so, of our presence at the most important UK audio shows every September since 1988. We are already looking forward to a very special presence at the NAS2012 and hope to be able to play our music through another collection of new products from all our long-standing suppliers. Not only, we also hope and look forward to welcoming as many of them as possible to give us a hand in celebrating such an extensive presence within our industry.
Our sincere gratitude to all the visitors and precious members of the Audiofreaks team - there would have been no NAS2011 without you!
