A Look at Setup Day at RMAF 2017

Fall has come in a very colorful way to Denver which was very apparent outside the Marriott at the Denver Tech Center.

We arrived at the Marriot shortly before lunch on Thursday and the RMAF staff already had everything running smoothly. I have never attended another show that is organized as well as RMAF.

Becky worked for years in marketing for Silicon Valley software companies and helped with many trade shows.  She has been amazed since she started going to audio shows at the incredible amount of work there is in setting up for an audio show. For a software show, it’s pretty much putting a table cloth on a table, plugging in monitors and keyboards and putting up company signage. Here is a picture of the Constellation and Wilson room as they were beginning to unbox and set up the equipment. Yeah, it’s a lot of work at an audio show!

Here are PS Audio before and after pictures. They were a little ahead of some of the others, but they said they started at the crack of dawn.

The PS Audio/Focal system was one of the first to be up and looking finished.

Classic Speakers and Atma-Sphere were making some real progress.

This double vertical banner really excites me. I can’t wait to get this Anne Bisson Trio’s Four Seasons in Jazz – Live at Bernie’s  all analog direct to disc 45rpm on my turntable.

I also can’t wait to hear these Verity speakers.

I want to give Garth Leerer and the team at Musical Surroundings recognition for this striking static display of Clearaudio Turntables.

Brian Ackerman of AAudio Imports is putting the final touches on the AAudio room.

I could not believe the size of the CanJam banner or room. There is no doubt that this part of our hobby is doing well.

I passed by people blowing up one balloon after another outside of one of the ballrooms. Then I saw this arch; maybe tomorrow I’ll find out what they are for.

Hope you have a great day! Look for pictures of my Friday at the show tomorrow night.
