If you were one of the more than 3,500 attendees at this year’s AXPONA 2014, we hope that you had a great show. We hope you had an opportunity to stop by The Absolute Sound’s book signing table near the Audiophile Marketplace to have an in-person look at the Illustrated History of High-End Audio, Volume One: Loudspeakers. To those of you who purchased the book, thank you for your support, and we hope you are enjoying your new book!
We wanted to share some photos of the book signing, and thank everyone for the overwhelmingly positive response to this labor of love. This book is the culmination of many, many sleepless nights, and hundreds of hours of editing and design, and hundreds of thousands of words written, rewritten, and perfected. There are so many great photos in the Illustrated History of High-End Audio, many of which are never-before-published archival photos of designers and their early workshops—including the fan favorite, Richard Vandersteen loading his early prototype into the back of his Ford Pinto.
If you didn’t have a chance to visit Chicago for AXPONA 2014 or stop by the book signing, don’t worry! Robert Harley, Jim Hannon, Neil Gader, Robert E. Greene, and Paul Seydor will be at T.H.E. Show Newport Beach to sign copies of the Illustrated History of High-End Audio on May 29 through June 1. If you haven’t been to T.H.E. Show Newport, it’s unlike any high-end show you’ve been to and is definitely worth the trip.
We look forward to meeting you in California for T.H.E. Show Newport, and hope you will have a chance to stop by our signing table sometime Friday, Saturday, or Sunday to meet Robert Harley and some of the other major contributors who made this book such a success.
