Axpona show starts today and wish I was there. Too  much keeping me here this year, but next year should be much different.

The day before

I often write today’s post yesterday, then schedule its release early in the morning. This prompts concerned emails from readers wondering if I ever sleep. And yes, I do. Eight good ones a night. But, thank you for your concern.

Today, which will be yesterday when you read this, is set up day at Axpona. It’s a day most of you never get to see or experience. And, that’s both good and bad. Good, because it’s a lot of work you don’t have to do. Bad, because many of you might enjoy the setup process. We have one day to convert a hotel room into a display area and listening room.

We’re more fortunate than many smaller companies. My wife Terri has spent weeks laying out the room and designing its look—a task I once did poorly. When she’s finished the place looks amazing. My only job is the stereo set up.

This year we have what looks like a decent room for audiophile sound. It’s not a square and it’s not shaped too oddly, as hotel rooms often are. We’ll set the Golden Ear Tritons 1/3 the way from the front wall, slightly off center, and then line the audio equipment up on racks.

The first few notes of music tell me instantly what level of trouble I am in: dialing it in or rearranging everything.

If you’re in Schaumburg Illinois this weekend, please do stop by and have a snack or drink on us.

We’re right outside the big convention area to the left of registration. Journey Creation rooms.
