    Default Rocky Mountains Audio Fest...no Polk?

    Surprised to see Polk will have no representation here; seems to be a big one with many big players there.

    Edit: Never mind; Bose won't be there either :D :D

    This is sad. The Lsi's need to be heard by audio fanatics. Too many misconceptions that they are typical Polk, when we know the LSi's are a whole different breed.

    RMAF is a public oriented event aimed at more discriminating hobbyists(vice the usual group of press and dealers at most events). It is a time for the 'little guy' to shine and strut their stuff. Unless Polk Audio has a secret weapon this year, this ain't Polk's territory and hasn't been for years.

    So was LSAF, and Polk was there.

    Fact is we were going to a Manley Rep at the Fest until he found out there were a couple of more cities in Georgia besides Atlanta.......so he had to get Rocky Mountain which was a conflict with him coming all the way to south Ga. for the fest, well anyway, we had a great conversation about Polk/Manley gear playing together, this fellow would love to demo the Manley gear with us at a future time.

    If Cedia was the focus then that is that, I will trust in Matt and the rest in knowing the who, what, why, where and when. Besides they said they would rather come to the PolkFest.;)

    Russ,

    Had to google up LSAF just to figure out what in the hell it was. I'm confident that if you were a Denver resident, Polk would have a room. Ya go where the support is, after all.

    The funny thing is that CEDIA was in Denver as well. All they had to do was rent some secure place to store the LSi's for a month. I firmly believe that once you get the audiophiles to hear the LSi's, Polk would regain some respect that was lost when they went with big boxes.

    Polk Audio has had over seven years to gain that audiophile appeal back - yet they have continued to ignore the chances to do so (at the big occasions). Hey, you've got to pay the bills. Theres nothing wrong with that. But at the end of the day - it is what it is. I guess Polk will just have to 'settle' on being one of the most successful American based 'high end' companies instead.

    Getting set-up for an large audio expo usually takes about five-ten minutes tops, you're right. I'll fire off an email t management.
