For our August 2016 meeting, we are very pleased to have presentations by Grover Notting, Merging Technologies and Mir Creation. Frank Hinton, CEO of Grover Notting, has assembled a number of highly respected people from across the audio community. The Sydney Audio Club is very appreciative of the effort and dedication that Frank has demonstrated to the club in particular and the audiophile and pro-audio communities in general. Our 4 hour event will consist of two very educational modules: Â· The first module will be Achieving Optimum Linearity and the rare experience of it â€“ presented by Frank Hinton featuring Grover Notting. Â· The second module will be High Sample Rate â€“ what it is, how it is produced and experienced â€“ presented by Johan Wadsten, the Main Educator from Merging Technologies Switzerland. Supporting Johan will be Ross Aâ€™hern. Ross has two main businesses â€“ his record label, Mir Creation and his studio and recording service, â€œThe Chapel of Soundâ€. Both of these presentations will feature the NADAC DAC (refer to http://nadac.merging.com/). The NADAC has been recently reviewed very favourably by many reviewers. Refer to http://nadac.merging.com/news. Grover Notting is the Australasian distributor for the NADAC.) Frank will also be bringing in 3 different monitors from their Universal Series Audio Monitors: the Code 1.5, Code 4 and Code 5. Most of our listening will be through the Code 5. Refer to http://www.classicaudiodesigns.com.au/universal_audio_monitors/index.php. Power amplifiers will be their Universal Power Plant. Refer to http://www.classicaudiodesigns.com.au/power-plant/. The front-end/source will be a Mac Mini running Roon talking through a router to the Roon-Ready NADAC. The NADAC will be provided by Frank. All gear will be setup and operated by Conan Tran, Merging Technologies technical support in Australia. Note that this event will not be held at our usual venue at Dence Park, Epping. As well, it will start at 1:00 PM rather than our normal 2:00 PM. It will run until 5:00 PM. See below for further detail. There will be music during and between the presentations. We will be presenting music in high resolution DSD 256 and PCM (192K and 352K x 24 bit). We will also have some tracks at lower resolution. There will be two breaks. The first break will be around 2:00 PM, the second around 3:30 PM. Each break will be approximately 30 minutes. Tea and coffee will be provided free by the club. Please note that we intend to keep the technical aspects of the presentations at a â€œlaymanâ€ level. We want the presentations and music experiences to be beneficial to all attendees. We will have Q&A during and after presentations. Q&A that proves technically involved, lengthy or considered too technical may be deferred to a break, such that all attendees will benefit. We will not have our normal BYO music session. We will provide Feedback forms as we normally do, however, we will not be passing out the forms due to the anticipated audience size. Instead, you will be encouraged to complete the form which will be available at a table at the back of the room. Guests are always welcome â€“ 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.
