Capital Audiofest (CAF) 2022 Show Report -- CAF 2022 premium luxury audio event coverage.

Capital AudioFest 2022 Show Coverage
Always fun and educational to see how things have evolved... and to see old friends.
CAF 2022 Show Report By Bob Grossman

 

 

  Another favorite room was prepared by Fabio Storelli from Alma Music & Audio. Featuring the QLN Signature speakers, Nagra electronics, Innuos music server, MSB Premier DAC, and Gigawatt power conditioner with the fabulous Kubala-Sosna cables. Fabio was playing Mi Buenos Aires Querido with Daniel Barenboim, Rodolfo Mederos, and Hector Console. The sound was gorgeous, lush yet revealing of all the musical details. I drifted off in time and space while being so musically engaged with many selections of jazz and classical pieces. Alma West which is located in San Diego will soon be opening an Alma East location in Sterling, VA. Their new store will surely be a welcome destination not to be missed.

 

 

 

 

A special message of congratulations goes to another PAAG member and dealer Aaron and Jessica Sherrick who presented a huge array of equipment and an impressive lineup of speakers in three rooms. The Vandersteens were good to hear in their large room and their smaller room featured the Jeff Joseph Pulsars speakers, which was also a delightful and engaging listen.

 

 

This time I picked up a souvenir RCA Nipper doggie statue from John Wolff in the Classic Audio room. I finally got to hear his magnificent Hartsfield speaker reproduction instead of his outstanding Classic line of horn speakers.

 

 

 

The Synergistic Room with the svelte-looking Estelon Speakers and SR products was a beguiling and intoxicating sound to be heard. The Unite Home Audio room with the large Lansche Audio speakers was always packed and an obvious popularity winner with the after-hours tape demo presentation by Greg Berron.

I finished my time with a brief visit to the VPI room to greet Harry and Mat Weisfeld, the designers and manufacturer of the two tables I own (Aries 3D Special Edition and Classic Direct). I heard the new Avenger Direct turntable with Canterbury Tannoy speakers powered by Audio Research equipment. It was another wonderful-sounding room and a perfect closure for my extraordinarily exciting, and memorable long weekend.

Summary
Overall, CAP was an amazing event and if you are thinking about attending next year, I highly recommend it. The variety of equipment, displays, and sounds cannot be beaten. There is no audio store that can provide this variety of equipment in various configurations.

 

 

It is just not possible to do justice to audio equipment online. You really need to see and hear it to appreciate the unique quality of the different equipment. Though I have owned and reviewed a variety of equipment over the years, it is always fun and educational to see how things have evolved and of course to see old friends.
