The RMAF has just announced calling off the 2021 show and at the same moment closing its doors forever !
What a development! I went there two times, in 2011 and in 2017 last time. Enjoying also the city of Denver, the Rocky Mountains area, including Bolder etc. this used to be a nice meeting of audio enthusiasts and real audio lovers. I went there with a good friend from Atlanta, who at that time had a music theater, the Variety – Steven Harris.
RMAF seemed to have run out of steam a few years ago and the new venue received decidedly mixed reviews.
In the US it was also a good starting point visiting my friend David in Utah (red rocks on this blog) and members of my family in Houston and Atlanta.
Good memories will still remain. I was able to listen to Harry Pearson and other magazine writers during a High End audio conference. The record shop was another good opportunity traveling back to Germany with some good music. All gone now…
Currently I am not able travelling to the US while vaccinated US people may visit us. What kind of policy is this? The US has changed a lot in the last 10 years. It seems the government doesn ´t take notice of the Europeans or the rest of the world. The withdrawal out of Afghanistan is the next blow (without talking to their allied partners) which looks like we see a moral and ethic change. A dramatic and deplorable shift in foreign policy, just concentrating on the local issues. Land of the free where are you going to??
