Upcoming events (1)
Ronnie brings a dozen high quality records, usually 45s. We listen mostly to those, but also Jeff's records. Pretty much 2nd or 3rd Tuesday monthly. Decided to invite the rest of the club. Anybody can hold a mini-Meetup. Just let Colin, Jeff, John or Bill know you would like to host.

Upgraded Polymer MKS-X loudspeakers:
All mechanical resonances are eliminated from crossover components both internally with damping compounds and externally with potted enclosures to protect delicate circuitry from powerful forces generated inside the cabinet.
· Pure diamond tweeter, maintains theoretically ideal pistonic motion throughout its entire pass band.
· Pure diamond midrange, like the tweeter this midrange maintains theoretically ideal pistonic motion where human hearing is most sensitive. Other cone materials bend and flex and warp at various frequencies creating colorations that are not on the recording (creating a sound of their own). The MKS-X allows you to hear exactly the signal as supplied by your electronics.
· World’s most inert cabinet construction using a combination of metal alloys to push resonances beyond the ability of instrument’s to measure them. The front baffle is machined out of a solid billet of material that is 5 times more damped and 5 times more stiff than aluminum. All ringing modes in the mid-range are eliminated.
