Salon Audio Montréal Audiofest Show Report Part 1 Rick Becker's Montreal Chronicles 2023.
Report By Rick Becker As in past years, I
wandered through the Adirondack Mountains on the way to Montreal, where I found
more ducks in the wilderness atop the Bonaventure Hotel than I saw within the
Blue Line. Arriving before 10am on Saturday, it was not
surprising to see a line to get into the show that stretched all the way back to
the elevators. What was surprising was how crowded the rooms became as
the day wore on. Friends in the industry greeted me as I swapped
the RMA lanyard on my press pass for an orange Enjoy the Music.com
lanyard that was standard issue at the recent Florida show. It almost felt like
a college reunion — and rightly so. I've been coming to Montreal for a long
time and it felt good to be back again. ---> Salon Audio Montréal Audiofest Show Report Part 1.
