For our July club meeting … we’re very pleased to have Henry Kristanto of Redefy Audio (http://redefyaudio.com/redefy) present. Henry last presented to the club in April 2016, when he brought in his superb Redefy Two – this time he’s presenting his impressive Redefy Audio Monitor speakers supported by other top-notch components. Before the commencement of our meeting at 2:00, we’ll be having a BBQ to celebrate our 10th year. The inaugural Sydney Audio Club meeting was held on July 1st 2007 – it’s hard to believe that 10 years have gone by so quickly! So to celebrate our success and good fortune, we’re having an anniversary/birthday party. Come by at 1:00 to enjoy good food and great company. It’s free for members, and only $5 per person for guests. During our regular meeting, there will also be a raffle and some RockWiz style track guessing - just for fun. Also in attendance will be Marc Rushton, founder and publisher of StereoNET Australia (http://www.stereo.net.au/), and Edgar Kramer who is Editor-in-Chief of the just launched SoundStage Australia (http://www.soundstageaustralia.com/index.php). (If you wish to attend our meeting as a guest please see our address at the bottom). The featured system on the day will be as follows: Redefy Monitor speakers: 2 way 8” + 1.1” dome tweeter. Here is what the Redefy Audio website says about the Monitor speaker… “Our first 2 way stand mount Monitor with our own proprietary paper cone 220mm Mid woofer providing very low distortion bass and midrange, linear frequency response and impedance, coupled with a low inductance powerful motor to provide excellent sound dynamics, midrange purity and lastly a capable bass to fill up any sized domestic and studio room. We selected one of the best dome tweeter in the industry, with powerful neodymium motor, excellent treated dome and loaded with short waveguide to provide excellent dispersion to match our Mid woofer.” Refer to http://redefyaudio.com/monitor/ and http://www.audiohifi.com.au/redefy-audio-monitor.php. Also refer to a review by Edgar Kramer of the Redefy Two at http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews2/redefy/1.html Vermouth Little Luccas Mk2 Limited speakers: 2 way with 5” and Raal Ribbon tweeter. Henry is also bringing in some new speakers by Vermouth. Until recently, Vermouth was known mostly for its high-end cables. But Hendry Ramli of Vermouth Audio has now turned his hand to speakers as well. Refer to http://vermouthaudio.com/new/?wpcproduct=little-luccas-mkii-limited-edition Arte Forma Elyssa Integrated Single End Tube Amplifier with 805, EL34 and 6SN7 tubes: Refer to http://www.arteformaaudio.com.tw/elyssa.html. Rick LeFaver in his review at EnjoyTheMusic said … “Sound wise this amplifier ticks all the boxes, great tonality, world class 3D sound stage, a noise floor on par with all but the very best valve based amplifiers, and macro and micro dynamics in spades. The sound quality of the Elyssa is of reference level for a push-pull tube based amplifier, a perfect entry point for someone looking to explore tube amplifiers.” Refer to Rick's review at http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0813/arte_forma_audio_elyssa.htm Esoteric SA60 SACD Player: This is an older player now, but still an excellent component. Refer to http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/esoteric9/sa60.html Vermouth Cabling: Black Pearl RCA interconnect, Black Pearl Speaker Cable, Red Velvet Power Cable The second half of the music sessions will be our popular BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD/SACD (sorry, no vinyl or USB flash drives). 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. Feel free to come and hear the capabilities of the system, or to just share the experience with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Guests are 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.

Redefy Audio Speakers 8pm Wednesday 17th August, visitors welcome. Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading Melway Map 48 Ref G9 Contact: 9437 1249 If you Google the phrase "Australian Speakers", you will find there are just over 40-odd brands that pop up. Some names are very familiar to the MAC members, while others are only known in their region of Australia. This month's meeting we are introduced to a new speaker designer/enthusiast from Sydney. Henry Kristanto has been in the DIY loudspeaker game for a number of decades - Redefy Audio is his first stab at a commercial venture. His long participation in audio as a hobby has gravitated his designs towards high-output/efficiency speakers. The importance which Henry places on dynamic expression, further led him to horns for tweeter loading with high output professional drivers from Italy. His most unusual looking floor-stander is the Redefy NEO: a two-way with a 12" mid/bass driver and a tweeter that is loaded with an elliptical horn. Looking more like a giant pair of lips, this particular model certainly stands out in a crowded speaker market. Henry will be demonstrating his latest offerings at the club: a 2-way stand mount model with Redefy proprietary 8" mid/bass driver with a 1.1" tweeter, and a 3-way floor-stander. The 3-way uses a 7" midrange, 1.1" tweeter, and a 12" side firing woofer. The cabinets are made from Birch ply and MDF. Amplification for the night will be handled by a pair of tube mono blocks: the Art Forma Due Volte 805, a class A, 35wpc amplifier. They are made in Taiwan with in-house hand wound transformers. The matching pre-amp Art Forma Thalia, runs 6SN7 tubes. Providing the front end source will be the Consonance Droplet CD Player. With a desire to redefine hi fi, Redefy Audio was born to offer speakers to the Australian market with an all-round high performance: great bass, great transparency and realistic dynamics without the extravagant price.
