This weekend, the 14th-annual Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) arrives in Denver. The largest consumer audio and home entertainment show in the US, it’s a wonderland for music lovers, audiophiles, videophiles, technophiles, DIYers, and more. And because we know not everyone can attend, we wanted to extend the fun to our community everywhere. We’ve put together a new collection of products we think you’ll love, all of which are on display at this year’s RMAF.
With its prestigious address, the Denver Marriott Tech Center hotel offers an unbeatable location to combine with its outstanding meeting and event space, business-friendly amenities, and exceptional service.
Dates: October 6–8, 2017
· Friday: Press only: 10 a.m. to noon; All: Noon to 7 p.m.
· Saturday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
· Sunday: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Each year, RMAF has a host of seminars dedicated to imparting a deeper knowledge of the audio industry. The discussions consist of designers, press, engineers, company owners, and a variety of industry experts. The sessions will educate, instruct, and possibly confuse and baffle you, but you’ll get it soon enough. They provide novices and experts alike with new information to inform future choices and purchases.
