Default 2017 PNW DIY Show

Hi All,


The Puget Sound DIY Show on Saturday, August 26, 2017 starting at 10am on Mercer Island. This is a joint effort of the Pacific NorthWest Audio Society and the Sound DIY Club

This is not a contest as such, but rather a "run what ya brung" meet, that is open to all interested parties that would like to display, view or listen to DIY Audio equipment. The event will be held at:

The Mercer Island Congregational Church
4545 Island Crest Way
Mercer Island, WA 98040


The meet is scheduled for August 26th starting at 10am for the public. (If you have items to display, setup starts at 9:30am or so). We ask all interested parties that have gear they would like to show to let us know ASAP, in order to know how many tables, etc. we will need. If you bring bookshelf speakers, you may want to bring speaker stands from home. Hope to see you there!

Best Regards,
Terry Olson

Just a note to get the show rolling. This year I'm thinking of bringing a new pair of Open Baffle speakers with 8 inch Radian coaxials for the top end, crossed over with a series crossover along with a pair of plate amps for the 18 inch woofers mounted in "H" frames.

In addition, I will probably bring a tube pre-amplifer/ headphone amp set-up and perhaps an amplifier or two.


Best Regards,
TerryO

If decisions can be made before August there's usually hope of completion.
The trouble comes when there are too many ideas - then nothing gets built!

It may be a bit premature to announce a possible exhibit that many will wish to see. I can tell you that there is a lot of very special gear that's been built in the last couple of years that we expect to be entered. Our DIY event is held every other year as an alternate to "The Puget Sound Speaker Contest". Speakers, Amplifiers, pre-amplifiers, DACs and Music Servers are just some of the things you'll probably see (and hear).

TerryO-

I was wondering - is there enough room to bring a complete system?

I'd like to bring a pair of bookshelf 2-ways, a pair of tapped horn bass units, a tube amp (SE), and my cd player. The speakers and amp are all DIY efforts.

If there's not enough room for all of that, I plan on at least bringing the bookshelf 2-ways. I've recently re-vamped the crossover, and I believe the sound quality has improved.

Hey Dave,

Room? We've got 5 rooms not counting two bathrooms (nice reverb) and a storage area (very dead). Bring all you've got.

And don't forget all those half finished and half-hearted projects that you'll never get around to completing; some other builder is sure to find a use for the parts!

great, I'll bring my (completed) system, and maybe a few odds and ends that never got air time here.

Thanks for the reply.

I will bring my revised "Beyond the Ariel" speaker system, the recently-completed Pimm Solid State Tabor amp, and a source setup (MacMini/Audirvana/exaSound dac).
