Someone PM me an address for Saturday. Otherwise I'll roam around lost in LA and just go to Griffith Observatory because it's the only place I know.

March 3rd GTG

Looks like the weather might cooperate. There currently is a 60% chance of rain on Friday dropping to a 10% chance on Saturday with sunny conditions. The temperature will be around 60°. I mention this because I am relying on the use of my backyard. If anyone has outdoor heaters that would help.

Ivan will be posting additional details later to coordinate food/beverages etc.

Hey Ivan, you forgot to add me to the list! No tequila for you!

I'll bring some side dish stuff, like maybe pasta salad, potato salad, etc. I'll stop by the market's deli and see what looks good that morning. I'd try and make something myself, but I'm awful at cooking and I don't think anyone would eat it.

And if the weather holds up, I'll be coming on my bicycle.

All,


Just a reminder of the upcoming meet at Starke Sound on March 10. We are working at the final details for the "AVSForum VIP demo." The rough head count is 26. I will post final details when confirmed.

Please let me know if you would be interested so I can get a rough estimate of the head count. More information will follow when they complete the room and finalize the details.

Hey guys, the shop just got a pair of ELAC Adante AS-61 speakers designed by Andrew Jones. We're still breaking them in but they already sound absolutely fantastic. I saw these on a static display in the ELAC booth at CEDIA but there was no way to hear them. They got great reviews at AXPONA and CES and I was just getting ready to drive to ELAC in Cerritos to hear them when the ELAC rep was nice enough to drop off a pair for us to audition.

We are driving them with an Audio Alchemy DPA-1 amplifier which uses a Class A discrete FET input stage and Class D Hypex Ncore UcD output stage rated at 125 WPC into 8Ω, 200 WPC into 4Ω. For preamp and DAC we are using an Oppo 205.

These speakers are ingeniously designed. The top end uses a compression driver firing through the center of an aluminum midrange driver for a point source at higher frequencies. The bottom end uses an internally mounted woofer with it's own rear enclosure and dual ports. Both the woofer and ports fire into a front chamber with an aluminum passive radiator. The woofer is driven full range without crossover effectively using the internal alignment as a band pass filter to acoustically roll off the highs. It has all the advantages of a ported design without the drawbacks of a port because of the front passive radiator.

The result is really clean bass extension which sounds more like a floor standing speaker than stand mount. The lack of a crossover to the woofer eliminates phase distortions between the woofer and tweeter/midrange which gives the design really phase coherent pinpoint imagining. On good recordings the speakers literally disappear and the soundstage is wide and deep untethered to the speakers. The Absolte sound raved about them at AXPONA:

http://www.theabsolutesound.com/arti...ers-below-20k/

"With almost unbelievable extension at both ends (and something like 36–38Hz on the bottom), spot-on tonal color, vibrant, utterly natural mids, and enough resolution and transparency to make you wonder if they might actually sell for three times the money."

Anyway, if you've ever wanted to hear ELAC speakers (and especially Andrew's latest creation) PM me and we'll set up a time to meet over in Van Nuys and listen.

Can I get some clarification...

We bring snacks/drink to Mike's.

Then at 2pm we go to Ivan's for tacos.

Do I have that correct?

I'm thinking about bringing some bagels and cream cheese...that changes things up a bit.
