Default Best Hi Fi show?

Hi guys

I haven’t yet had the chance to attend a big stage Hi Fi show but would like to plan something for 2019.

I know quite a lot of members here have attended many shows and I’d be interested to hear people’s thoughts on what they think is the best show to attend, and why, if you could attend anywhere in the world.

Thanks!

The Tokyo international audio show is one of the biggest and best. It’s held annually in the fall. It’s often the place where the big Japanese manufacturers roll out their new products.

Thanks Higgens - do you still get a broad representation of non-Japanese manufacturers attending?

By the way, I love Japan so wouldn’t take much to get me along to this one!

I'm contemplating same, leaning toward RMAF once in new venue.

What are attendees' thoughts on the expense range represented at RMAF vs AXPONA vs Munich? I'd rather attend a show that allows me to hear some of the best gear on the market, but isn't limited to only the highest of the high end gear, which will forever be beyond my budget. I'd prefer a show that represents a fairly broad spectrum of prices.

OP/ Mark - if I go to anything next year, it will be Munich

RMAF in Denver is well worth it and they have changed venues to a newly constructed resort for 2019
