  Making my way into the Magico room it was extremely busy! Attendance at AXPONA 2017 was indeed up for the year and was hoping to get back and give this room a listen, as it did sound really nice from the brief visit.

ELAC's Andrew Jones being the always gracious host during AXPONA 2017, was showcasing their new speakers being driven by Audio Alchemy gear. Another great sounding room and i'll gladly give it the Best Sound For The Buck at AXPONA 2017. You can read my review of the ELAC Debut F5 Floorstanding Speaker here.
