More Shows Around The Corner
Traditionally the summer months are quiet months in the hi-fi industry, with manufacturers’, dealers’ and customers’ thoughts turning to family and holidays. But not in California, where the local audio community clearly feel duty bound to offer visiting hi-fi fans a mid-term fix.
T.H.E Show: Newport - June 1st – 3rd
The Hilton, Newport Beach
18800 MacArthur Boulevard
Irvine, California 92612
A spin-off from the satellite event at CES, T.H.E Show’s Newport event started up last year and proved immediately popular. Buddying up with the LA&OC Audio Society was probably a smart move!
The California Audio Show – August 3rd – 5th
Crowne Plaza SFO
1177 Airport Boulevard
Burlingham, CA 94010
Running since 2010, this San Francisco based show is also gathering a following, and developing steady momentum. It also has the huge benefit of being a BART ride from downtown San Francisco, with all its restaurants and alternative retail therapy options. Where better for a weekend away with the other half?

Add to these the Toronto TAVES Show at the end of September, and of course, the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest two weeks later, and you needn’t worry about a lack of opportunities to update your audio understanding.
