Portable aficionados will be glad to learn that the biggest room is dedicated to the best in headphones; home-theater systems will also be represented. And the fest is not just for the idle rich; Baumert promises that the gear being shown will range from the affordable to the absurd. And the price of admission ($10 for a day, $25 for the weekend, seniors and students half off) buys you the chance to catch musical performances and attend seminars on everything from how to digitize your collection to the physics of audio.
The Rocky Mountain Audio Fest starts today at noon and goes through Sunday at the Denver Marriott Tech Center, 4900 South Syracuse Street; for more information, visit www.audiofest.net or call 303-393-7918.
