If you’re an audiophile or a music lover in the Chicagoland area, you’ll be interested to know that one of the industry’s most exciting events is right around the corner: The Audio Expo North America. AXPONA is the largest audio expo in North America, a three-day event celebrating everything about audio gear and the listening experience. Hundreds of audio brands and vendors will be in attendance, showing off their most sought-after equipment. Abt will be exhibiting at the show, and we’ll be bringing along a collection of gear from some of our favorite high-end audio brands.
One of the main reasons that AXPONA is a must-visit for any audiophile is the collection of hi-fi listening rooms. A variety of brands will be exhibiting in private rooms dedicated to offering a pure listening experience—an integral part to the purchasing process for anyone serious about audio. It’s something you can’t experience when buying a speaker or some headphones online. Other draws of the show are the Record Fair—a marketplace filled with new and vintage vinyl—and the Ear Gear Expo, a section of the show dedicated to the finest in headphones.
AXPONA will be held at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center, April 12-14. Tickets are available for one, two, or all three days, and you can get them at this link: AXPONA tickets. Local audiophiles who can’t make it to the show are always welcome to stop by the listening rooms at Abt, where we’re happy to demo audiophile gear from Bowers & Wilkins, McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Sonus Faber, and many other brands.
