Default Next Adelaide AES meeting

Hi all, Next meeting will be on Tuesday 19th November 7.30pm in the upstairs room, Directors Hotel, 247 Gouger St.

We are having a return visit by Graham Dicker who is going to make a presentation on his "Research in capacitors". One sentence from the meeting notice mentions new methods of testing distortion heard, but so far, non- measured. If you need a reminder of who Graham is see post #43 above.

The meeting will be preceded by a (hopefully) brief AGM, so no need to fret over being a few minutes late.

3GGG and others, you are always welcome to come and have a listen to the Linkwitz LX521 speakers. They sound particularly good since replacing the mid poweramps that were in use at the AES demo. The current amps are diy to a design by a Romanian guy, forum name Roender, in the Solid state forum. There were three group buys of various permutations of printed boards and other parts. A cow of a thing to source parts for but it sounds good!

Keith

Blackwood. Cabinets are combination of MDF, blackwood veneer and solid blackwood.

I am looking to put together a current state of the art PC as a digital music feed for the play back of high quality digital Computer Audio.

The Digital music source would be iTunes or similar and internet streaming like Sky.FM.

The document below from Audio Quest goes into some technical detail, but I need the assistance of an audio enthusiast who has been through this process or knows someone who has.

Can anyone direct me to someone with knowledge. I am in Adelaide.

I am not sure who has done such things, there are a number of threads here: PC Based - diyAudio

I run a computer for some of my music, and just either have it going through the home network, or plugged straight into a pre amp from the sound card. But I am unsure of what it is that you are asking for help with?


On a different note, Keith Taylor, any meetings coming up? Despite giving my email address several times, I still don't receive meeting notices for our local AES meetings, and as a result haven't been to one since the last one you posted.

Hope all is well,

Ryan

Hi Ryan and others.
There have been no AES meeting notices sent out so far this year. Sorry to hear you are not getting them when they are sent. Long term attendees seem to stay on the list but others do not seem to get on the list or get lost somewhere. We may have to ask the secretary to send email confirmation that you have been added to the list.

The next "meeting" will be the CXRoadshow at the Convention Centre on 19th Feb. See cxevents.com.au/ It is a display of equipment for those involved in audio, video, lighting and staging. Admission is free but you will have to fill out some registration details and be given a badge to wear. This is not an AES initiative.

Some time ago I had a visitor from Victoria who came over especially to hear the LX521 speakers. On the 10th of this month four more Victorians came together and had a long listen to them. They seemed pretty enthused, and said it was well worth the long trip.

Keith
