737Re: [rivercityaudiosociety] Website & Meeting Schedule
- May 1, 2012I agree with Alan about the quick a/b testing. We saw how difficult that was at the cable shootout. The professional reviewers for the major audio publications take in a product and live with it awhile to get the full gestalt of what it sounds like. I also have a nice pair of set amps and modified Klipsch RF-5's , but no car. I would be willing to bring them with help. Also the gold speaker cables as I use them to greater advantage than was heard at the shootout.From: Alan Hendler <alanhendler@...>

Subject: Re: [rivercityaudiosociety] Website & Meeting ScheduleDon,That would be goodActually I have a couple of low powered set tube ampsThe Klipsch speakers I have are side speakers in a surroundsound system so I will have to try them with my set amp.Actually I have not used the Klipsch with any of the amps I have mentionedbut mentioned bringing the klipsch because I certainly can't bring My MaggiesI am somewhat against quick ab blind tests and would rather play several selections with each amp so that members can get a feelfor the basic sound of these different topologies. We are not trying to say which is better butwhat do they sound like in the context of a particular systemAlanFrom: david weil <dpgdave@...>

Alan and Don, both ideas sound great. I missed cables meeting, but I saw pictures of the rig Luther built to hide the various components from view and it would be great if we can use that setup in these future meetings to blindly compare the components.
Alan, I know the KSB3.1 speakers are quite efficient, perfect for little SET tube amps which should sound wonderful. It maybe a little harder to come up with smaller solid state amps but I have a 10 wpc solid state amp that I can bring along. Don, for the powered monitor meeting, I could bring a set of Dynaudio bm5a active monitors. I could do a meeting on digital computer/laptop based front end setup.

I would be willing to do a future meeting at Bjorn's on Powered Speakers. I have two such sets myself, one inexpensive and one modestly priced set, but I would like to have several other sets from other members if they are willing to bring them.
Let me know and I will start working on it!
