CANJAM Booth #61-62 (Rocky Mountain Event Center)
Preparing for CANJAM 2018 I was asked when I attended the Rocky Mountain Audio Festival (RMAF) for the first time. I couldn't remember. 2005 was probably our first audio festival. Moon Audio and our Dragon audio cables moved from garage to an office in 2003. Heading to the Denver audio festival two years after our move sounds right.
Moon rocks we'd like to share at RMAF 2018:
- Secret New Headphone
- Dragons Invade Denver
- Chord's Hugo M Scaler Redefines Rocky Mountain High
- Astell & Kern Plays RMAF
- Aurender, Roon, Bryston, Lions, Tigers, and Bears, oh my
- Calling All Audio Geeks
We LOVE the isolation, quiet, and intimacy great closed back headphones such as Fostex TH900 create. There's no free better-sounding headphones lunch, so closed back cans usually trade sound intimacy for a less spacious soundstage.
Has a leading headphone maker solved the closed back soundstage problem? We know who but don't know what, when, and why. Once the threat of double secret probation is gone, I'll update with initial reactions, reviews, and thoughts (sometime Friday).
Contemplating leaving my day job fifteen years ago I understood a few things:
- Cables aren't an audio manufacturer priority.
- Better cables = better sound.
- My Champagne audio tastes and Burger King budget has to be more common than not.

Who wants to hear favorite music as if for the first time? If a magical black box capable of adding detail, clarity, and beauty to how your music sounds would you want it? Answers: Yes and Chord's new Hugo M Scaler.
Chord's high fidelity revolution continues with a "digital filter" advanced enough to recover your music's soul, sound, and sensation. Combine Chord's M-Scaler with the new Hugo 2 TT and prepare to be amazed.
Chord's magical new box will help any DAC sound better. Chord's dual inputs mean listeners will experience the most significant sound quality gain when the Hugo M-Scaler paired with Hugo, Mojo or other Chord DACs and amplifiers.

Astell & Kern Plays RMAF
Digital sound and storage are now inextricably tied. Digital Audio Players (DAPs) are the new turntables. And Astell and Kern make the best DAPs in the world. Here's Ryan Waniata's note in his Digital Trends SP1000 review.
Like its predecessor, the A&ultima boasts top-level high-resolution audio support, offering support for virtually any audio file (WAV, FLAC, WMA, ALAC, APE, AAC, DSF, etc.) with a max resolution of 32bit/384kHz for PCM files and native playback of DSD files at up to 11.2MHz. A&K's “Mastering Quality Sound,” claim isn’t hype. You’ll be hard pressed to find a file at the resolution supported here outside a professional mastering or recording studio.Visit CanJam booth #61-62 and discover how to Dragon-ify A&K's sweet-sounding DAPs.
We're fans of software and hardware to help manage, play, and engage with music. We also agree with a version Sun Microsystem's John Gage's famous quote, "the network is the computer." For audiophiles and music lovers, the network is about to be the music.
In a wi-fi time Roon, Bryston and Aurender understand the importance of networks to music storage, sound, and engagement. Each helps bring the fun back into your music. Each brand has robust features, well-crafted hardware, and an eye on evolution.Find the future of music, lions, tigers, and bears at the Rocky Mountain Event Center CANJAM Booth #61-62.
