Headfi.org founder Jude Mansilla and his team, led by show producer Ethan Opolion keep innovating and growing CanJam Global. The show at the famous Marriott Marquis in Times Square broke all attendance records for CanJam Global. The crowd was the biggest I have witnessed at any CanJam and the highlight for me was moderating a panel on High Resolution recordings featuring Jude Mansilla, Mr Speakers founder Dan Clark and 3X Grammy winning producer Jerry Wonda. NBA legend David Robinson was in attendance as well as a packed room of eager Headfi.org members who had fantastic questions on High Fidelity recording for the panel. The Marriott Marquis was loaded with 17000 square feet of space to accommodate the show. The room was filled with over 50 companies with a variety of products in all price ranges from the affordable to ultra high end. The goodies on display represented what is the best available in high end personal audio.
