“The greatest value of exhibiting at AXPONA as a manufacturer is the opportunity to meet face-to-face in person with our end users. Starke Sound looks forward to shaking hands, talking, and, most importantly, listening to the attendees to get to know them on a more personal level so we can improve our products and satisfy their needs,” said Scott DeLoache, Starke Sound Inc.

“Sierra Sound is a distributor of products such as Benz Micro phonograph cartridges and AMG turntables, who will be introducing a new model at AXPONA. We want to use our exhibit room to highlight our strict focus on analog audio with a multi-source vinyl-only selection of music, including some material outside the realm of traditional audiophile music. We hope to connect with analog lovers of all stripes, to share our love of this wonderful medium,” said Michael Fajen, Sierra Sound.
