Florida Audio Expo 2019 Show Report

Tortuga Audio And Triode Wire Labs
Florida Audio Expo 2019 show in Tampa, Florida.
Report By Steven R. Rochlin

 

 

  Setting up on the long wall here at the Florida Audio Expo had challenges. With Tortuga Audio and Triode Wire teaming up, the soundscape was very encompassing.

 

 

 

Meant to revisit this room for more listening notes yet my parents came to the Florida Audio Expo on Sunday so my last day where I usually revisit rooms was curtailed. Note to self, visit their room at AXPONA because I know both manufacturer produce excellent gear.

As a side note, it was interesting to see them using QSC amplification as well. Personally use their K10.2 powered / DSP loudspeakers mated with KS112 powered / DSP subwoofers for my percussion / drumset monitoring system (and parties / DJ / etc). Just as Tortuga Audio and Triode Wire Lab make impressive high-end audio products, QSC produces impressive PA / FOH / etc gear imho.
