I haven't rung yet, But i have a background in Steel Fabrication, I would expect to pay no more than 150-200 with FIS materials. Don't ever let them supply the materials as its another opportunity to add mark up. Or get a quote each way and compare.

It sounds very good to me. Clean and dynamic with exceptional detail. All horns driven with tube amplification except bass reflex subs which use a solid state amp. You're welcome to come and listen.

Default March AES meeting, Adelaide

Plans for March did not eventuate, so we are going to view a video presentation by Francis Rumsey, a very knowledgeable guy from the upper echelons of the AES.

Spatial Audio-Reconstructing reality or creating an illusion?

You may have wondered if there are some advances in spatial audio that we ordinary people do not get to hear examples of. It turns out that two channel stereo has not been significantly eclipsed by more "advanced" systems, as it sidesteps a number of artefacts inherent to them.

Default May AES meeting, Adelaide

Hi all, sorry about not posting the April meeting. This one is a continuation of the same subject, which is home audio networks. The presenter, Hugh Sparrow, is going to elaborate on the Raspberry Pie single board computer as an audio renderer.

How to build a top class audio renderer on a budget

Default July AES meeting, Adelaide

Hi all
Andrew Bayfield and Neville Clark are going to present-

The Sound Of Rooms-through headphones

Andrew has a particular interest in listening rooms for mastering operations: where we don't want the room colouring the recorded sounds. Over quite a long time he has made recordings of loudspeakers playing in a number of mastering suits and domestic rooms. These recordings are multi generational, as in a recording of a recording of a recording etc.

Andrew was planning to record my Linkwitz LX529 speakers but did not get around to it. A pity, because they are currently sounding most impressive following a conversion to the 0.4 variant by analog means rather than the mini DSP. My contribution is to apply rear wave absorption to the upper baffle considerably reducing room reflections. For dipole speakers absorption certainly beats diffusion of the rear radiation; although neither are too elegant in the room.

Important, bring a pair of headphones There will be no loudspeaker reproduction.

Default September AES meeting, Adelaide

The subject is Headphones - free field and diffuse field target responses derived from acoustic theory. Our Chairman heard a presentation by our presenter at a recent AES Convention in Berlin.

Christopher Struck is very well qualified to speak on the subject of headphone testing as he is the Standards Director of the Acoustical Society of America, has his own acoustics and audio consulting firm in San Francisco as well as spending some time at B&K in Denmark.
