MWAVE 2022 was such a fantastic experience.  I am a newbie to the hobby and tried to absorb as much information as possible, and the people at MWAVE did not disappoint.  I was not only able to learn soo many new things, but I was also able to connect with some of the best friends across the country who really know their stuff!  If you are on the fence about MWAVE 2023.  Trust me when I say this event is the best to come to learn new and unique things while also connecting with some fantastic individuals.  Special shoutout to Michael and Ryan for dedicating their time and energy to creating such a fantastic and well-needed event!


Woke up this morning and felt empty inside. Instead of going to work I would have much rather headed back up to the Lied Center. Can’t wait for next year! I can’t say it enough but thank you so much Ryan and Michael for the wonderful experience!


Thanks to everyone the put in the hard work to make the first MWAVE such a great experience. Michael Stevens, you and Ryan have every right to be proud of this past weekend. It was without a doubt one of the best weekends I have had in a very long time. I cannot wait for MWAVE 2023 and look forward to what the future holds.

Awesome job YM! You guys are making history with another meaningful in-person show like this, for enthusiasts to enjoy! Well done guys!


Really been enjoying hanging out with YM @ MWAVE that he and Ryan put together. Being able to enjoy some awesome toys, and sharing the excitement with this fun hobby with new people has been a wonderful delight!


What an amazing event. Being able to see the best of the best gear go head to head with no biased is truly a gift. Not to mention all of the best home theater content creators in the same place and willing to answer any questions is insane! This event surpassed my expectations, and I can’t wait until next year. Thanks to all who helped with this event. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.


MWAVE hit the mark, not just because it offered “Benchmark” amplifiers, pun intended, But this was a show that offered a more family oriented experience. All the vendors had the opportunity to discuss and explain not only their gear but their experience in the hobby and other life experiences not surrounding Audio or HiFI at all. You had the opportunity to actually get to know anyone you wished and view any product at this event. That also included the MartinLogan Neolith, Kaleidescape, madVR Envy, Sony VPL-GTZ380 and Krosan606 all in one location. That last one was the most important, to me meeting the people that you’ve interacted with on forums and Facebook as well as Youtube etc all in one place over days was the show. All the gear was amazing and all the vendors I send a great thank you to for the opportunity and experience to bring us all together. The gear gave us the excuse to come together the people made the event the real experience. If you want to see me take back my toe tap title, I lost this year, I’ll see you next time at MWAVE.

Life of Bliss Experience at MWAVE 2022

It was great hanging out with Kyle from @Life of Bliss during MWAVE 2022. Kyle has become a great friend over the years and appreciate him taking the time to share his experience at the MidWest AV Experience.


MWAVE is a unique event for audio and visual enthusiasts. Unlike other AV events, which are primarily focused on vendors showcasing their products, MWAVE is all about bringing enthusiasts together to have a good time and participate in activities and experiences that foster learning, growth, and camaraderie.

At MWAVE, you’ll have the opportunity to join general discussions, attend home theater and 2ch demos and seminars, share knowledge with others, enjoy delicious Kansas City BBQ, and participate in product comparisons. The event spans three days and is designed to be an enjoyable and memorable experience for all attendees.

Unlike other events, MWAVE is not focused on selling products. Our goal is simply to create a fun and engaging environment for enthusiasts to come together, learn from one another, and make new friends.

Join us for the Midwest AV Experience and be a part of something truly unique and special.
