Default Ottawa DIY winter 2014

2014 Ottawa DIY Audio Gathering

All DIYers are invited to this event. There will be a range of gear and music to listen to in a casual atmosphere.

Where:
At the General Burns Park and Community Centre
107 Chesterton Drive (86 Argue Drive)
This is east of Merivale Road, and south of Meadowlands Drive

When:
Saturday 15 March from 12 (noon) to 7 pm, and
Sunday 16 March from 9 am to 7 pm

Saturday Schedule (as always, subject to change):
- Setup and photos of equipment
- Brown bag dinner (there is a fridge to keep food and beverages cold)
- Listening to music on various set-ups & discussion about the equipment

- Formal activity: Measurement of drivers and/or speakers

Sunday Schedule (as always, subject to change):
- Setup and photos of equipment
- Brown bag lunch (there is a fridge to keep food and beverages cold)
- Listening to music on various set-ups & discussion about the equipment

- Formal activity: Seminar by Mark Kravchenko (speakers) of Kravchenko-Audio
- Trades (DIYers like to reuse and recycle )
- Pizza dinner

- Pack and clean up after dinner.

How much?

A small fee to cover rental of the room. This is a not-for-profit event. Based on past experience, we anticipate that this year’s fee will be $10 per person (please bring exact change).

Parking: Is free and close by


Recommendation for comfort:
Footwear that was worn outside should be left at the door to minimize the clean-up. You might want to bring indoor shoes or slippers to wear.

Who will be there? Old timers and new comers. Feel free to drop by

Looking forward to seeing you soon. Till then, happy building and listening!

So those attending (info carried over from "old" thread & updated) are:

John
Ron
Anthony
Adam
Mark
Tyler
These are confirmed.

Owen will try to drop in.
Dave is a possibility for Sunday
John (Bearberry) is a possibility for Sunday

Pierre is unlikely to make it this year, but sends his support to continue without him.

Some teasers...20130922_200902.jpg

Two drivers I designed and are in production.

Might even throw them into the obligatory OSB enclosure.

No need to break with tradition....

And the innards of the large tower that is coming.

Dave, you will not know what hit you with this one.

Hope you guys are coming.

And if someone knows someone that has an LCD projector, I would be very happy to do a presentation with sights and sounds.

Calling Mr. Slim, I think you volunteered one time to bring a projector.

Saturday:

Bring your tunes. Listen to what you guys would like to listen to.

It will be an equal opportunity to assault each others ears with what we like best.

If you bring enclosures, or drivers I will be very happy to test them out for you.

I have just a few different mics for R&D measurement now.

What sources are people bringing? That way I'll know what format to bring my songs in

My DAC supports USB, SPDIF and Toslink.

I'm going to rebuild my chip amp with the 2nd revision boards, some fixes and better caps and try to bring it.

I should have included Dave (newtoaudio)(c/r #276 in 2013 thread) in the attendees list. So it looks like we'll have 2 Daves to supplement our (usual) 3 Johns.

And yes, Dave, it would be ok for you to post the link to our meeting.

Thanks, Ron

I may have damaged my vamped LPUHP. No case has arrived from the far east yet so I decided to put it all on a small piece of plywood so we could show and tell. Too many aligator clips, I suppose one slipped and one of the + regulators is not working well now,
lots of 120 hz in the output bummer, bummer, no spares either, tripple bummer.
