Acoustic Sciences at Pacific Audio Fest 2022, Seattle, WA

The inaugural Pacific Audio Fest showcased many of the world’s top HiFi music playback equipment manufacturers and was a wonderful experience for all involved. Special thanks to show director Lou Hinkley, who, together with show manager Gary Gill, facilitated a trouble-free and thoroughly enjoyable event. We sincerely hope this is the first of many years for the PAF, and a harbinger for more of the audio shows we hold so dear after 2+ years of postponements and uncertainty.

HiFi audio shows are the best place to personally experience a wide variety of loudspeaker, amplifier, audio streaming, phonograph, and other associated equipment types — all in one convenient location, and you are able to compare this various gear nearly head-to-head as you move from room to room. For many boutique makers of fine equipment, audio shows are the only opportunity that potential clients may have to audition their labors of love.

Hotel rooms are not built for audio playback fidelity, and frankly, usually sound very bad. TubeTraps make every room sound better, and truly must be heard to be appreciated. TubeTraps are fairly big & bulky, and are not the most convenient for HiFi shops to keep “in stock” in their back room. Seattle is a mere 5-hour drive from our headquarters & factory in Eugene, Oregon. Such was the perfect storm that resulted in a tsunami of TubeTraps sweeping onto PAF 2022.

ASC TubeTraps found homes in nearly half of the exhibitor’s rooms at PAF 2022, and you’ve just seen a handful of them. We think – and nearly everyone agreed – that the rooms with TubeTraps sounded the best!
