Well the weather kept the attendance to about 20, but we had a nice time meeting and listening to preamps, tube, fet, and digital power amps.

For those who didnít attend the winner of the door prize ( a 2019 ZR1 Corvette) was Bart . He chose black for the color.

As a make up event maybe a Diy BBQ Saturday June 16th, ( hopefully no ice storm).
Or wait until the fall - comments please

Things we learnt. One of the last demos was a 15 watt tube amp which drove the on site speakers louder than you might imagine.
Some would like classical and/or jazz for demo material . You Ďll need to bring that as I have none.
Chairs would be welcome. I donít know how the coffee machine works - got to set the clock Was discovered by the attendees who looked up the manual for it on line. Any other attendees can comment on what we can do better on next time.

I hope to have a balanced dac by then and possibly a passive balanced preamp.

On my calendar already.

Even as a no-show myself, I'd think we all owe Dave a big thank-you.

15-watts: Paul Klipsch used to say he only wanted 5 clean watts, assuming domestic use. Even adjusting for lesser efficient speakers, you'd rarely need 100 watts.*

Thanks.
Ben
*ESLs sometimes appear to draw big watts but it is only because they are an odd load; in reality, they are really ecologically sound

Hi Miklos,
Well, now you know they aren't all scary ... well. Maybe not.

I'll try to remember my camera next time.

I had a great time as well, especially 'after hours' when we turned up the volume a few dB with no complaints from the neighbours...
