More Info About RMAF 2017
Attendees were encouraged to go from room-to-room, interact with salespeople and engineers, have a seat and casually listen. Many brought their own iPods, discs, reel-to-reel tapes or vinyl records, as most exhibitors are happy to play one or two favorite songs as a demonstration of sound quality. A variety of equipment was demonstrated, ranging from affordable audio systems to ultra-expensive high-end gear. RMAF also featured live entertainment, informative seminars, equipment show specials, and prize drawings throughout the weekend. You could find everything you're looking for and a whole lot more you had no idea existed! Discounts are available for students of all ages.
