It is time for a real change in Audio Shows and it will be announced this week. As you might expect AXPONA will now elevate Audio/Video and media to the next level. Be prepared to make plans now as the event will sell out immediately and access is limited to the first 68,500.

Peter has been a writer, editor and senior editor for publications such as Stereophile and The Absolute Sound. He currently has a new on line publication, AVshowrooms, which offers some great coverage of the event. Here's what he has to say about this years AXPONA.
Thank you for hosting such an outstanding event.
The show was intimate and friendly. In fact, it was one of the most enjoyable shows I've ever attended. The large rooms were huge and the sound was overall excellent. The hospitality parties were great and brought everyone together.
What really set the show apart was the partnering with the Jacksonville Symphony and the tours of the concert hall. Going backstage and standing in the pipe organ "blower room" was memorable. The The art exhibit was key as well adding a flair of culture to the event, not to mention the TM seminar with Prudence Farrow Bruns, the actual "Dear Prudence" of the Beatles song namesake and Mia Farrow's sister. I'll never forget shaking hands with Dear Prudence.
What a great show! We have full video coverage of the event, including the hall tour, the art exhibit, "Dear Prudence" talking about TM and the Beatles, and the fabulous
exhibit rooms. Thanks Steve!

AXPONA 2012 Show Report
Show Coverage By A. Colin Flood
I, Mr. A. Colin Flood, am now a regular at AXPONA – haven't missed a year since they started! Why do I go?
Few high-end, audio-visual retail stores in my area. Convenient, entertaining, informative and not too expensive weekend. Stimulating seminars with experts. Something to do with friends from my Suncoast Audiophile Society (Meet up.com). Another way to enjoy the hobby. At AXPONA, you can see, and hear, some amazingly cool stuff:
And for me, after more than a decade of writing audio reviews, a chance to act wise (and nervous) on a panel of real experts.
