Day two and three of the California Audio Show were a blur… our room was packed almost all the time with attendees either having meaningful conversations with us and each other, or sitting down and listening to our system with total focus and attention… almost like the room had a life of its own.

Aside from our system, which on day three was sounding really good, people seemed to like our infinitely-looping powerpoint presentation on the benefits of SFAS membership (created by our very own Goddess of Events, Leslie), and the matching iPad Sign-Up Station that at times had a line up 4-deep.
