Pacific Audio Fest 2023 Show Report


Pacific Audio Fest 2023 Show Report
Enjoy hearing the finest of premium audio gear in Seattle at PAF 2023.



  The Pacific Audio Fest (PAF) 2023, which took place at the Doubletree-Hilton Sea-Tac / Seattle from June 23rd through 25th, is the USA's very best Northwestern premium audio event. There was live music Friday and Saturday nights, with NW regional wine and beer tastings, and ~80 rooms of quality audio, Marketplace, Record Fair, HeadZone and much more! Renowned audiophile and reviewer Greg Weaver enjoyed Friday and Saturday evenings presenting his curated after-hours music sessions. The Pacific Audio Fest show was located at a top tech hub and one of the fastest growing communities in the USA, plus it is a vacation paradise in the summer months. The Seattle area has great demographics for the audio industry too!

An audio triumph in the Pacific Northwest!
PAF 2023 Show Report By Greg Weaver
First, my apologies for this report's tardiness. Within days of returning home to the Midwest, I came down with some kind of flu or cold (not you-know-what 19) that had me out of commission for some ten days. Once I was on the mend, I got right back to work. Here is my take on my experience in Seattle... pardon the delay. My flight from Chicago to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport arrived more than forty minutes ahead of schedule. As I collected my checked bag and headed out to catch a ride to the Doubletree by Hilton, less than half a mile from the airport, I was treated to the beautiful weather that late June in the Pacific Northwest had promised! After checking in, saying hello to all the friends and colleagues I ran into in the halls, getting settled into my room, and washing up after the trip, I joined in the welcoming meet and greet on the fourteenth floor at Maxi's. Good food, free drinks, and great conversation set the tone for what would turn out to be an amazing show!
