I don't know why Terry is picking on you. We should only listen to groups who hold their meetings at the Four Seasons hotel and dine on Caviar.
Fortunately, these guy seem to afford more than the basement. Here is the agenda and meeting location for the last one:
"Music Psychology: How we perceive and react to music
LTS Umeå convenes meeting on music psychology. Lecturers are Alf Gabrielsson professor emeritus of psychology
The production will be based on material from his book "Strong musical experiences"
The lecture is addressed to musicians, engineers and listeners.
This meeting is a collaboration between the Audio Engineering Society Umeå, Norlandsoperan and Study Association was formed
Location: Café Östra Station Rådhusgatan 2C, Umeå
Date: May 18, 2011
Time: 19:00 to 22:00"
"Study visits to Swedish Radio
LTS Stockholm invites you to a study visit to Swedish Radio
We learn how the migration takes place, namely the transfer of old radio shows (which may be on the treadmill / DAT / CD / cassette) to digital media. How do you do? What do you think? What is archival? Come with your questions!
We may also visit the gramophone archive.
The meeting will take place on Tuesday 19 April. We meet in the foyer of the Swedish Radio, Oxenstiernsgatan 20, last at. 17:55 . It's fine to sit down and wait just inside the spinning door. Do not port the phone!"
Don't know about you but they could meet in the closet and I would want to listen and discuss what they did.
As I noted to Arny, you all seem to be advocates of an outcome, not objectivity and data. Nothing is right unless it agrees with you. You put down anyone if they dare saying they achieved something different than you thought.
No better example than you here. When discussing audibility of high res audio, did you question where the Boston Audio Society held its meetings? Nope. It said they had done ABX test and foud no difference that was good enough for you to run with it.
But boy, have a true engineer who runs an engineering society come up with opposite outcome, and the damnations start. Arny calls their work "alleged" and you chastise them for not having enough money to meet in a fancy place (putting aside that there is no information on their site about meeting in a basement). If they don't have a million dollar facility to run tests, they must not be good enough. Ironic because Harman does have a million dollar facility but that's not good either.
I have to run to make a donation to LTS (Swedish Audio Society) so that they can upgrade to hot dogs from bread and water.....
