CanJam is the world’s premier headphone audio show with annual events in New York City, Singapore, Los Angeles, London, and Shanghai and is produced by Head-Fi.org, the world’s largest online audio community.
Last weekend we attended CanJam London, our second CanJam this year after the Chicago event in June.
Located in the ballroom of Park Plaza, Westminster, the room was full of headphones and personal/portable audio brands showcasing their latest innovations amongst an excited crowd of audiophiles and music lovers.
The show gave us the unique opportunity to showcase Roon to music fanatics looking for an immersive experience when listening to music through headphones, without compromising on sound quality.
Our weekend started on Friday at the dCS Lina Lounge launch, where we got to experience firsthand the ideation behind the new dCS Lina headphone system while experiencing some captivating live music by Judie Jackson.
Once set-up, we were then ready for a weekend full of demonstrations through our partner devices which included Audeze LCD-XC headphones, AudioQuest DragonFly Cobalt and Red USB DACs, Chord Mojo 2 USB DAC, T+A HA200 headphone amplifier, and the dCS Lina system. There were also a range of Roon Ready and Roon Tested devices being demonstrated on other stands too, including iFi Audio Zen Stream, Naim Uniti Atom, Astell&Kern AK HC2, SP2000T, and Kann Max, and the Burson Audio Conductor 3XGT.
Our specially curated playlist, CanJam London, was also a hit with the varied mix of artists and music on offer during the demonstrations. CanJam London is available in Playlists by Roon on your Roon Home Screen.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and having now ticked off Chicago and London, we’re looking forward to the next CanJam SoCal in California on September 17-18, 2022.
