Yes. We are meeting on the 8th starting at around noon. Some of our group members will be bringing speakers to demo. Should be fun. I will post all the details tomorrow or so.

Thanks for the invite Ivan. I've been out of the loop for a while. It'd be great to catch up with you guys again but most likely I'll be out of town on the 8th. If that changes I'll definitely stop by.

Atmos on Netflix Titles

Of interest to folks here: last night there was a SMPTE/AES meeting with a topic of mixing for home theatre. One of the speakers was Scott Kramer of Netflix, who spoke about Netflix's initiatives supporting high quality audio, and in particular Atmos. Netflix is now recommending their content partners mix in Atmos, with a minimum monitoring environment of 7.1.4 and a recommended monitoring environment of 9.1.6 - and he specifically called out that Netflix feels the Front Wide speakers are very useful in creating a nice, wide front sound stage. He also clarified that Netflix is delivering true object-based Atmos, not hard-printing to 7.1.4 or 9.1.6, so for people with extended Atmos arrays you'll see activity through all your speakers as objects pass around the room.

Netflix is up to ~250 titles streaming with Atmos, with much, much more to come.

To any of you guys that are attending T.H.E Show on the 8th. Would you want to hook up either for the show or b4 we head over to Ivan's place?

It starts at 10 and I was thinking of spending a couple of hours (try to be out of there by noon). Then head over to Ivan's...

Details for the Sat June 8th mini Speaker shootout and GTG.

We will start at around noon or so till someone gives up. So we should make it a Pot Luck as usual for the first part of the day. Then in the evening we can order or go out for dinner for those of us still left.
Anyone else want to join and bring some more speakers?

<hope this is okay>

If anyone is putting together a DIY subwoofer, I have a high power* no-fan-noise amplifier I can bring with me to the meet - a Yamaha P5000S. Decided it's too much power and so switched to a Yamaha P3500S, the next step down. Can do $335 at the meet! (PM me so I don't further distract from the meetup.)

-Tal

*500 at 8 ohms stereo, 700 at 4 ohms stereo, therefore 1400 watts RMS bridged mono at 8 ohms

I'm in for sharing / paying for delivery of goodies,
the timing for fresh and hot has a lot more appeal
helps out with "staggered' arrival times of the usual suspects
and , oddly enough, I'm unfamiliar with the finer amenities proffered in the Compton area . .
any ideas?

It might be a good idea if we all list what food or drinks or snacks we are bringing so we have an idea and don't have too much of one thing. I will have some drinks as water and sodas.

Not looking good for me either.
I thought work was finally slowing to a managable pace. Now it's speeding up!
