    Similar to my thread last year, I thought I'd start this one to see who's attending AXPONA April 12-April 14 in Schaumburg, IL (same location as 2018).

    AXPONA - Audio Expo North America

    I thought last year's event was really well done, and will be going on Fri and Sat. Anyone else?

    I'm looking forward to checking out PureAudioProject's speakers most of all.

    I'll be there Saturday for sure and possibly Friday as well pending availability to take the day off from work.

    Try to also hear the new Spatial X5 and X3 models. Let us know how the Spatials compare to the PAPs.

    I'll definitely try to check them out. The X line is out of my budget but it will be worth hearing the comparison.

    Oh yeah, AXPONA is must see TV for me. Friday for sure. Interested in hearing the new EAR phono preamp make its debut. Would also like to check out the spatial audio (they had better not sound too good!) and Buchardt speakers. Klipsch speakers will also be there making their first appearance I believe.

    I plan on attending either Friday or Saturday. You mentioned two of the companies I am most interested in hearing. I also hope to hear Audio Note speakers as I attended two years ago and was totally underwhelmed by AN's exhibit.

    By all means let us know what you think of all three brands, and anything else that grabs you.

    I will be there Saturday and Sunday looking for streamers, NAD, Cambridge Audio, Blusound, Lumin, and others if someone can recomend a good Streamer besides those mentioned, please do. I plan on checking out the MastersoundD and the Rosso Fiorentino product line in the Audio Thesis room. Lots of stuff to see 1 day was not enough last year that's why I hope this year 2 days will be enough time to see all the Audio items I'm wanting to check out.

    Likely Saturday for me, and it will be the first time I've been to anything like this.

    I’ll be there on Saturday. The Schaumburg venue is a great improvement over the Rosemont shows.
