Toronto Audiofest Oct. 21-23, 2022

The Toronto Audiofest resumed back to the Westin Toronto Airport Hotel where audiophiles were welcomed to listen and see new launch products.

At the FiiO booth, we had a display of products which included: M17, M11 Plus ESS, M11s, K9 Pro ESS, FD3 Pro, FH7, FH7s, FH9, UTWS5, BTR5, and BTR7.

We also had the upcoming launches arriving soon to Canada including the K7 (balanced headphone dac/amp for desktop), Q7 (portable desktop-class amplifier), FW5 (true-wireless bluetooth earbuds), and R7 (Digital Audio Streamer).

A lot of people were interested in seeing the R7 as it is something different than what FiiO normally produces. It will still have the same familiar FiiO signature screen and interface (android base), but with a more powerful body. Release date has not been confirmed yet, but pricing estimate is between $800-$1000 USD.

For the PS Audio Booth, we had Travis, the international sales manager from PS Audio, fly in from Denver to attend the show! He talked about the new BHK 600’s, Directstream MKII DAC, and aspen FR30’s (we had the black pair this time in Toronto versus the white ones in Montreal). You can watch an interview done by Jordan (Mr.Chibs on Youtube), with Travis here!

Another great weekend to show to music lovers, audiophiles, and anyone new to the audio industry that music, brings us all together.

Until next year’s audiofest!

Montreal AudioFest – March 25 to 27, 2022

It was nice being able to attend a show with some normalcy again at the Montreal Audiofest show!

Hotel Bonaventure was once again turned into a place for audiophiles, music lovers, and exhibitors demoing their latest and most popular products.

We featured some new FiiO products including prototypes of BTR7, KA1’s at the show at the FiiO booth in the Marketplace (just located down the escalators to the right). On display was: M17, M11 Plus ESS and AKM, FD5, FD3, UTWS5, FH9, FH7, FH5s, and FH3, and K9 Pro ESS paired with HEDDphones.

Nexus is also the new Canadian distributor for PS Audio. Check out the photos below!

Paul flew in from Boulder, CO to help set-up the Aspen FR30 and truly made it one of the best rooms at the show! Unfortunately, he was only here for one night and many people who follow Paul on his daily blogs or YouTube videos were not able to meet him in person. Many people were still ecstatic to listen to the Aspen FR30, as these are the first pair being shown in the world!

Overall the show was a success for both brands and it was great to be able to see everyone enjoying music and testing out new products in person again.

Until the next AudioFest show at the Westin Toronto Airport Hotel from October 21-23, 2022!
