"Perhaps the chief concern of the attendees was how the high-end-audio industry would 'build a bridge to the next generation of audiophiles.'"
"What's always compelling for me about the Merlin speakers is the way in which they disappear into the music they create -- and do so consistently in hotel rooms that are often less than sonically ideal."
"This demo was a potent reminder of how innovative and expertly constructed this music was -- and that David Gilmour's greatness cannot be overestimated."

Sounds & Sights

"The Audio Beat sponsored an interesting and provocative seminar during the RMAF on the importance of using proper EQ curves for analog playback."
"We'd like to think that the high point of Ken Kessler's long career as an audio scribe has been writing show reports for The Audio Beat, but we're realistic."
"A prediction: the face of this man will become much more recognizable in 2012. . ."
"Big. That's what the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest has become. "
