The hi-fi dealer Now Listen Here is pleased to announce a two-day event September 26-27 in King of Prussia, PA. Special guest Mat Weisfeld of VPI Industries will be on hand to demonstrate—for the first time—prototypes of their new modular direct drive turntable, universal arm pod, and phono preamp. Special guest Jeff Joseph of Joseph Audio will also be on hand to demonstrate the Pearl 20/20 Graphene loudspeakers. In addition, we will be demonstrating Fyne Audio F704 loudspeakers, Jeff Rowland and Chord Ultima electronics, Transparent cabling, and state-of-the-art digital frontends with Chord DACs and Sonore optical streamers. Special ‘event-only’ pricing will be available on all demonstrated lines.
When asked for comment, Now Listen Here owner Aaron Sherrick said:
“With the many show cancellations this year, including Capital Audio Fest where we exhibit, we really wanted to connect with the hi-fi community in a different way. We’ve heard from many customers how much they miss hi-fi shows so we’re doing our best to deliver a slice of that experience in a safe and controlled way.”
The event will be held at the Hyatt House in King of Prussia, located next to the King of Prussia mall.
In order to create a safe event for everyone, masks and temperature checks are required before being granted admission. No exceptions. To control the number of attendees and comply with Pennsylvania’s gathering limit of 25 people we’ve adopted a seminar format that requires registration (no charge—see link below). The time slots are 2 hours long where attendees will spend an hour in each of our two rooms listening to music and presentations from our special guests. The rooms are large—approximately 1,000 sq/ft each—to allow ample social distancing of chairs. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available to attendees. Hyatt House is following procedures and protocols developed in consideration of guidance and information shared by the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other leading organizations and experts, and local government requirements and guidance.
The hotel conference center space, where the event will be held, is located one floor down and is accessible by a wide, open staircase off the hotel lobby and by elevator. The conference center has its own ‘wing’ to reduce traffic from other hotel guests, and the entire conference center space has been reserved for this event to ensure privacy and no intermingling with other events. The conference room wing also has its own set of bathrooms.
