The buzz was all buzzy at this year’s Florida Audio Expo 2023 in Tampa. PartTimeAudiphile’s The Occasional Podcast managed to pull together a crew of 4 for their annual highlights and best of show podcast, and the team gathered some solid coverage of the show and nearly all its listening rooms.
Marc Phillips, Scot Hull, Brian Hunter and Matthew Partrik all got together to tell the tale of their favorite sounds, sights and restaurant picks from the event this weekend. At Florida Audio Expo 2023 there were more than a few new product releases, and many rooms sounded better than ever before. The giant rooms on the main level didn’t disappoint, especially if you are a fan of late night listening, concert levels and the prog rock band that goes by the name of Rush.
The Occasional Podcast is launching into their 9th season. Previous episodes include coverage of Capital Audiofest 2022, interviews with Sean Casey of Zu Audio, how to’s and more from audio’s greatest talents, including Michael Fremer and Pacific Audio Fest 2022 Best of Show, another interesting conversation about the History Of The BBC’s LS3/5a Loudspeaker, A Beginner’s Guide To Tube Amplifiers and A View From The Booth: Reference Systems, Accuracy & Why Audiophiles Love Jazz So Much: including rare interview with the late audio legend engineer Al Schmitt.
