  5. The ATC SCM19A Active Speaker 8pm Wednesday 20th February, visitors welcome. Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading Melway Map 48 Ref G9 Contact: 9437 1249 The Acoustic Transducer Company, ATC for short, is one of a handful of pro-audio companies to have crossed over successfully into the Hi Fi arena. The company was founded back in 1976 by Billy Woodman, an Australian acoustician who developed the famous 3 inch soft dome mid-range driver for professional monitor speakers. Many audiophiles would be very familiar with the domestic range of ATC speakers, with numerous reviews in many magazines. JAG Imports will be presenting at the club the latest active speaker from the new 'Entry Series', the SCM 19A. The least expensive active floorstander in the range, this two way model stands just under a meter high and carries a 182 Watt power pack that is installed in the bottom half of the tower. The 150mm Mid/Bass driver is powered with 150 watts while the 25mm Soft Dome Tweeter receives 32 watts. The Mid/Bass employs ATC's new 'ground-breaking' Super Linear Technology, said to reduce third harmonic distortion by 10-15dB between 100Hz and 3KHz. The tweeter employs a unique dual suspension system suppressing diaphragm rocking modes. Keep in mind that because it is an active design, a number of compromises have been eliminated from their passive twin. With the implementation of an electronic x-over in the amp module, the passive crossover network components have been removed and thus are no longer subjected to vibrations from the internal back wave of the drivers. The biamplified system is able to power the drivers without the significant power losses of a passive network. Separate active circuits can individually control magnitude and phase allowing both to be optimised, and minimising speaker cabling allows you to control the bass driver by maximising the damping factor. The SCM19A is an important addition to ATC's extensive domestic lineup. The combination of power handling, ruggedness and lack of colouration are qualities that make ATC speakers a leading product.

    Nikon Z6 and Z7

    Z6 review on DPReview. 88% isn't a bad score and certainly a lot better than some of the other recent FF mirrorless offerings. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-z6

    At Abbotsford Convent. After the heartbreak of being told that there were no more banana fritters, consoling myself with the really nice light.
  10. A Raspberry Pi Music Night 8pm Wednesday 16th January, visitors welcome. Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading Melway Map 48 Ref G9 Contact: 9437 1249 This month's Melbourne Audio club meeting will be entirely presented to you by your committee members. They will present to the club a selection of music from their favourite CDs. It could be a track from their 'desert island discs' or a recent purchase. To ensure that we get through as many different tracks, I've requested that each track be no more than 5 minutes long. This will get us through plenty of music before the coffee break. While it's good to have a music program of varied tastes, the audio system to play it on, will be just as interesting. Chris M will start off the night with his 'Raspberry Pi' Music Server. This super versatile palm-sized computer was developed in the UK to promote teaching of basic computer science in schools. Now in its third generation, many DIY groups have developed several different uses for this computer, everything from a Home Weather Station to a Media Server for your television. The 'Pi' has its own Wi-Fi output as well as four USB2 connections. Chris operates the unit from a tablet with a modified program called Moode. His music selection will be sourced from a USB drive while his latest DAC, XMOS U8 which uses an AKM chip from their 'Velvet Sound' generation, will take care of the sound. An OPPO multi disc player will also be available on the night for the other members to play their discs. This would be a good opportunity for all members who are new to the club, as well as the regulars, to discover some new sounds. I'm sure the guys on the committee will do their best to present a thoroughly satisfying night of music.

    Yes. Sodium lighting. Lots of it used in the CBD. Results in those orange/brown nightime shots you see of the city.
