I'm thrilled about the idea of a dedicated Audio show [snipped by Mod]

I was wondering, as well. As TAVES has been imploding & will probably be even smaller in 2018, a different Toronto Audio Show would be a good alternative.

I think high-end manufacturers and retailers deserve better than what TAVES delivered last year. I would be very supportive of something focused on audio and in good rooms where systems have a chance. Metropolitan Toronto is now larger than Chicago, yet Axpona appears to be spectacular. If we can end up with 50% of Axpona I would be thrilled.

The Toronto Audio Show thread was removed by the Moderators due to some unfounded accusations being posted about the show. The organizers of the show reached out to us and we were compelled to act on their request.

It's one thing to express an interest in an event. It's another to presume to know what goes on behind the scenes without being privy to actual facts and figures.

As long as people are here to express interest in attending per the poll, this thread will remain open. Please do not speculate on any other matter regarding the show.

^ It would be good if we could get the originally posted link back that has the details....

It doesn't appear in this laptop's history.

Don't know why we can only choose one of the two Shows to attend per the poll. Do they read the wife's mind that most of us can only get permission to attend one Show only? It is ok with me as I will not go to TAVES 2018.

I used to go to TAVES every year in the past but not TAVES 2017 because of the poor set up environment for a audio show.

Free admission if you pre-register. Hopefully this will draw in more people. The price of taves was ok but maybe it is enough to deter some people.

Any show run by Michel Plante and Sarah Tremblay should be fantastic,they really know how to put on a great show.
