CAF, NYAS, Social Media Fun And Frolicking


  This weekend's Capital Audiofest (CAF) 2019 is shaping up to be truly epic! Normally editorial are about whatever is within this issue, yet let's forget all that and go right to the fun of shows. Why? Because there is sooo much fun to be had while enjoying the music! During CAF our good friends over at Part-Time Audiophile posted on Facebook that they're having a get-together for those under 40 hosted by the fabulous photojournalist Eric Franklin Shook. Like the informal meet-up during RMAF 2019, am sure there will be an abundance of fun for all, plus VPI is joining in for free food and drinks for those under 40.



Of course those a bit older than 40 seemed a bit bummed or ????, and so great guy John DeVore, of DeVore Fidelity fame, did a fun n' snarky Facebook post too :)



Our recent CAF 2019 press release goes a little something like this.... Enjoy the Music.com's Senior Editor Greg Weaver, with sweet speaker manufacturer Von Schweikert and visually stunning amps by Valve Amplification Company (VAC) plus The Audio Company, will have two late night music-fests! "This event at Capital Audiofest 2019 will mark the third year of this now traditional LP party," said Enjoy the Music.com's Greg Weaver. "It is hosted by The Audio CompanyVAC, and VSR, in the amazing Potomac Room, and features musical programming by yours truly."



"The system is comprised of the most advanced, musically expressive gear on the planet, and is worth over a million and a half bucks!" says Enjoy the Music.com's Greg Weaver. "Can you believe these cats let me program this room for over four hours? Yeah, me either! Friday night I'm going to play David Bowie's Glam Rock masterpiece, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, from start to finish. I'll be cueing my personal 1981 Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs Half-Speed master release, which is the quietest, most dynamic, most extended, most spacious, most natural sounding copy of this LP I've found since its release on July 3, 1972! I've wanted to do something like this for years, and these guys have been gracious enough to give me their stage... This will be awesome, and is just the first of many more to come at future shows!"


Capital Audiofest 2019 Show Report


"Saturday night I'll be digging into my vault to play some of the most important and most remarkable sounding rock and classical recordings available", said Greg Weaver. "I'll be spinning some original first pressings like a 1971 US Cotillion Emerson, Lake & Palmer and a 1971 UK Island of Cat Stevens' Teaser and the Firecat. I have a few special classical works too, including Beethoven's Glorious Ninth Symphony and Appassionata Piano Sonata, and a delicious version of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. And I've got some DCC Compact Classic, Cisco Music, and Mobile Fidelity remasters too – including some MoFi UD1S and UHQR releases, that are all exceptional sonic treats. That's about all the spoiling I'm willing to do now... If you are going to be in the DC area next weekend, stop by Capital Audiofest 2019 and get your groove on with us!"
