  1. The August 2012 meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again at Dence Park for an afternoon of fine music and sound and convivial company. Each month, the Sydney Audio Club presents the finest in high end audio systems for our members and guests. It's a bit like a private audio show once a month where you can hear and discuss equipment that you might not otherwise have the chance to audition. And you can bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This month, we focus on the offerings of the Audio Products Group (APG). APG is a distributor of premium audio and visual products to home, business and professional users. Some of their brands include: AKG, Denon, Elan, Loewe, NAD, PSB, Peavey, RevoLabs, Sunfire, Tannoy, WireWorld. Scott Collins, the APG Marketing Manager, will be in the audience to answer questions. The equipment line-up will be: NAD CD player C546BEEG (RRP $599) http://www.audioproducts.com.au/ProductInfo.aspx?pid=C546BEEG PSB Imagine T2 speakers (new $3499 floorstanders with a transitional 5-way design) http://www.psbspeakers.com/products/imagine/Imagine-T2-Tower NAD C 390DD (new $2,999 2 x 160w amp with Direct Digital technology) http://www.audioproducts.com.au/ProductInfo.aspx?pid=C390DD Cabling by WireWorld http://www.wireworldcable.com/categories/reference_range.html Also, we will have other products which were some of the first collaborations between the two brands of NAD and PSB: PSB M4U2 headphones (RRP $399) http://www.audioproducts.com.au/brandproducts.aspx?Brand=PSB\ NAD VISO 1 smart music system (RRP $699) http://www.audioproducts.com.au/ProductInfo.aspx?pid=VISOONE The NAD VISO 1 also features Direct Digital technology. While this is not a typical audiophile product it does offer great sound for what it is. They are often finding a place in other rooms of an audiophile's home where casual listening is the desire. And… the Audio Products Group (APG) has generously offered to give away the display PSB M4U2 headphones, free! This will be offered as a draw/door prize. You will need to provide your name and email address to enter the draw (one entry per person). Your details may be used by APG in their marketing, but will not be shared with any other business. As usual, the second half of the music sessions will be BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD (sorry, no vinyl this month). All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others of a similar mind. Members and Guests welcome – we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound. We will welcome you at the door. Venue: Epping Creative Centre Address: 26 Stanley St, Epping Doors open 1pm Meeting starts at 2pm Best regards, Tom Waters President Sydney Audio Club www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au tomwaters@sydneyaudioclub.org.au I'm posting for Tom and the Sydney Audio Club
  2. The July meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again at Dence Park for an afternoon of fine music and sound and convivial company. Each month, the Sydney Audio Club presents the finest in high end audio systems for our members and guests. It's a bit like a private audio show once a month where you can hear and discuss equipment that you might not otherwise have the chance to audition. And you can bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It’s Vintage/Classic time again. People always enjoy themselves at these events and we’ve had many requests for more of them. We had a lot of wonderful vintage gear last year and this year is looking just as good. Our main system this year will be an all Meridian system. We’ll have a Meridian CD player and preamp driving active Meridian M2 speakers. As well, we will have a Technics SL1300 (home consumer version of the 1200) with an Audio Technica AT33ML cartridge and a custom made MC step-up head amp. We’ll also have lots of gear on static display as well – such as an A. R. Sugden & Co. Connoisseur BD1 turntable (from Yorkshire) and B&W DM4 speakers. Btw – for our meeting, we are considering anything pre-1990 to be vintage/classic equipment. As usual, the second half of the music sessions will be BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on vinyl or CD. All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go.

  3. The June meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again at Dence Park for an afternoon of fine music and sound and convivial company. Each month, the Sydney Audio Club presents the finest in high end audio systems for our members and guests. It's a bit like a private audio show once a month where you can hear and discuss equipment that you might not otherwise have the chance to audition. And you can bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This month, computer audio will take centre stage. No doubt you’ve noticed there are fewer and fewer shops where you can buy CDs/SACDs and vinyl these days – it is expected that that will only get worse. Downloads are very prevalent now, and thanks to sites such as HD Tracks you can download high-res music. Whether you are already a computer audio whiz or a newbie considering it all, don’t miss this meeting. We will have a plethora of DACs and USB converters powered by an Ultrabook front-end. The equipment line up is as follows: Wyred4Sound DAC2 – The DAC2 utilizes the famous ESS Reference Audio 32 bit DAC. Provides 24-bit 192kHz Asynchronous USB input, proprietary discrete output stages, ESS Time Jitter Domain Eliminator, fully balanced design with balanced inputs and balanced outputs, upgradable boards and oversized toroidal transformer. Bryston BDA-1 DAC – The BDA-1 is a state-of-the-art external DAC using fully discrete Class-A proprietary Bryston analog circuits, two independent linear power supplies and dual Crystal CS-4398 DAC chips. It features an impressive array of inputs for USB, COAX, OPTICAL, AES-EBU and BNC equipped digital devices. For audio outputs, the BDA-1 offers both balanced XLR as well as unbalanced RCA stereo connectors on the rear panel. The BDA-1 is RS-232 software upgradeable. Bryston BDP-1 Digital Music Player - The BDP-1 focuses solely on playing high resolution files and will support 16 and 24-bit word lengths and 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192kHz sampling frequencies. It accesses these digital files from any USB device – either thumb-drive or hard-drive. The easiest way to understand the BDP-1 is to think of it as a 21st century updated CD player. Instead of CD’s as the music source though, it utilizes USB thumb drives or USB hard-drives as the music storage source. Empirical Audio Off-Ramp 5 USB Converter – The Off-Ramp 5 is a fifth-generation product that supports sample-rates of up to 24/192 and uses Asynchronous USB protocol for reduced jitter. The Off-Ramp 5 also includes an HDMI I2S output, so that DACs with these inputs (such as the W4S DAC2) can be driven directly avoiding S/PDIF conversions. Toshiba Ultrabook with Windows 7 and SSD running JRiver Media Centre. Dell 27†Ultra HD display panel. Oppo BDP-95 Universal player. Wyred4Sound STP-SE preamp. Classe CA400 stereo amplifier – 400wpc into 8 ohms. B&W 801 Series 2 speakers. As usual, the second half of the music sessions will be BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD/DVD-A/Bluray (audio only) or USB flash drives - sorry, no vinyl this month. All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others of a similar mind. Members and Guests welcome – we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound. We will welcome you at the door.

  4. The Sunday 20th May meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again at Dence Park for an afternoon of fine music and sound and convivial company. Each month, the Sydney Audio Club presents the finest in high end audio systems for our members and guests. It's a bit like a private audio show once a month where you can hear and discuss equipment that you might not otherwise have the chance to audition. And you can bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The Sydney Audio Club will have another great system for your listening enjoyment on Sunday 20th May. Bill McLean of McLeans Smarter Home Entertainment will be bringing in a complete system comprised of the following: Magneplanar 3.7's with aftermarket braced stands – these speakers have been receiving rave reviews around the world and are a noticeable improvement over the famous 3.6’s that they replace. Dual Magtech Stereo amps (run in mono) – high current amps by Sanders Sound Systems designed to drive Maggies. Magtech pre-amp Oppo Multi-media Player Silver Circle 5.0 power Conditioner AND… Bill will also be bringing a new, and probably somewhat controversial product from BSG Technologies called the 'qol Signal Completion Stage'. This was reviewed recently in The Absolute Sound by Robert Harley. Although he admitted to being sceptical prior to listening, it took only a brief session to convince him of its merits. See the details here on Bill McLeans’ web site. As usual, the second half of the music sessions will be BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite SACD/CD discs to share – sorry, no vinyl this month. All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go.
