Building on the Right Foundation - Cont.

Without any club activity for some time now, I thought I'd offer to host a follow up meeting for listening and discussing technologies, performance limitations in high-end audio, and some game-changer physics 101 concepts.

The theme of this next meeting would essentially be a continuation of the meeting I hosted last December entitled, "Building on the Right Foundation" where I hope I was able to demonstrate that without proper AC management and without proper vibration management, our sensitive components' precision and accuracy are so severely compromised that the distortions induced by these two greatly under-controlled energies create a low performance-limiting governor on every last system regardless of cost.

For those who attended the first meeting, I recently made a very simple advancement that has substantially improved the system's sonics. If I were to guess a percentage, I'd venture a conservative (and subjective) 25 – 30% gain in overall musicality. If there was any doubt last time about my claims for what constitutes building on the right foundation, I'm confident this time around I can remove any remaining doubt.

Meeting info:
o Start date/time: 11 am, Saturday, October 13th.

o Drink and appetizers would be provided.

o Seating is limited to 8 people.

o I anticipate the meeting lasting until about 1:30 - 2 pm.

o During this meeting time, music levels will range upwards of 93 - 95db.

o For those who like to let their hair down, you are welcome to stick around as thereafter listening levels will advance well into the 100 – 107db range (but with zero or near zero ear-fatiguing distortion).

o I possess an inexpensive projector and 10.5ft. diag. screen to demonstrate what a proper foundation does for video as well.

o I'm in Salem about 35 – 40 minutes south of Beaverton but I think you'll find it worth the trip.

o BYOM - Feel free to bring a well-engineered recording and a poorly-engineered recording that you wished sounded better.

o For more details, see my previous meeting info in the first "Building on the Right Foundation" meeting elsewhere on this website.

    Great gathering of audio fans courtesy of John. Wonderful to see a new face too. Welcome, Terence!

    The clarity of John's "foundation" system is impeccable. Sounds are very 3D like and percussion is incredibly crisp. And wow, that bottom end demo, very visceral, I never experienced anything like that. I can't tell if it's anything you did, or didn't do, but the sound was cleaner this round as I remeber it. Thanks John for another great event.
