This month's meeting will be a members request with club members providing the musical program. MAC members are invited to bring along a CD with a favourite piece of music that would appeal to the group. This could be something from their "desert island disc" selection or a recent purchase. On entry, each member with a CD will be given a slip of paper to write their name on. A table next to the door will have three containers marked:
Classical, Jazz and Other.
Please put the slip of paper into the appropriate container. When your name is pulled out, you will be offered the opportunity to play your music. This time, I will allow members to bring a CD for each container. There was a less than enthusiastic response from the group when we last had this same meeting. To ensure as many members as possible can participate, the maximum time for each track will be no more than 5 Minutes. This should get us through plenty of CDs before the coffee break.
Ray Go from the Hi Fi Exchange has kindly provided us with a pair of B&W Nautilus 804 loudspeakers. These floor standing speakers have the very distinctive Nautilus "tweeter-on-top" look. The high frequency unit sits in its own pod and is decoupled from the cabinet. The slender speaker box houses the well-known 6 inch 'Kevlar Cone', the yellow midrange that is seen on the 800 series. Below the midrange are two 6.5 inch woofers, loaded in a reflex configuration with a flared port sporting dimples.
Completing the rest of the system will be an OPPO 95 Multi Disc player. The amplifier will be my 100 watt unit based on a NAIM kit with a high current output stage. This would be a good night for new members as well as the regulars to discover some new music. There's more to HiFi than just the equipment.
