There are a bunch of pics that weren't posted but they're all in this directory:
Have a little fun - Do "Where's Dave Slagle" and find him in all the pics you can. There's even one special one where someone accused him of being an audiophile. See if you can find that one.

I didn't get to do all the videos I wanted to do, but if you search 'Lone Star Audio Fest 2012' on you tube, you will find Polk, Pi, Stereo Clarity, Audio Fred, and Raven videos.

Hello Everyone!

I want to show my gratitude for the hospitality shown to me while at the show and I had a great time.

Since I was flying solo I was trapped in the room and didn't have the chance to get around to everyone and introduce myself. I apologize to those who I rooms I did not get to visit.

I really enjoyed the vibe and I met a lot of really good people. Look forward to make the transition to Austin soon and making another go around next year. Very Happy

-Joshua


Best Regards.

Hi Everyone, We (Oddwatt) had a great time. Listened to some cool music, saw some super gear and met lots of really nice folks. It seemed to me that this year the questions from the guests were more sophisticated than last year and more of the folks were serious about quality music reproduction. Very encouraging. I want to thank all the people behind the scenes that made the event possible and especially Steven for his hard work and while we didn't use them bringing extra speakers for us Smile

I'm already thinking about next year. Rolling Eyes

Hi Everyone, I'm getting ready to go to RMAF and it just dawned on me....what ever happened to the awards from LSAF? Anyone ever get theirs? Confused


Good Listening

You and I were "winners", as I understand. Cheers!

Dave Thompson at Raven Audio is actually who put that together, and he seems to have fallen off the edge of the Earth. Last few times I emailed him about the awards, I got no reply. So I think the whole thing was a dud. Sorry to all that were told they were winners, but never got their awards.

We'll not be allowing this sort of thing to happen again in the future, by the way. No more "awards". It just tends to sour the milk, for a lot of reasons. LSAF is a show to sit down and listen, meet friends and have a nice time. It isn't about trophies. The awards we get are the smiles on each of our faces.

I'm sure Dave had the best of intentions, but it didn't work out. Ultimately, I think it is a really bad idea for any exhibitor(s) to sponsor awards like that. I am really sorry we allowed them to bring that into LSAF.

I don't know that awards or free raffles are necessarily a bad thing. The one time I went to RMAF there was a lot of that going on, but with most of them they were giving them away there, not a promise for receiving something in the future. I really wanted to win the Von Schweikert V33's!

Hmmm, I seem to remember winning a T-shirt for naming a certain phono stage that I never received Laughing Although I'd take a free preamp kit in its place Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I don't mind the gift givaways, like we did in the lobby. Those are fun and easy enough to do. There is no chance of tomfoolery when you just draw names from a box. So giveaways, lotteries, all that kind of stuff is most welcome at LSAF.

It's the exhibitor "best of show" awards that I have a problem with. That kind of thing makes the show become a competition. I think it polarizes everyone, and takes the camaraderie out of it.

Not only that, but unless it's judged by the guests, then you have to find "formal judges", which really cannot be unbiased. The audiophile business is a niche industry and it's way too small to have a large enough pool that's unbiased. Everybody is in one camp or another.

Because of that, and because the award winners were contacted but no awards presented, I am pretty strongly biased against any future "best of show" awards at LSAF.
