M8Audio 8pm Wednesday 17th October, visitors welcome. Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading Melway Map 48 Ref G9 Contact: 9437 1249 It's not that often that we get someone who has travelled all the way from Queensland to present at club. Mark Thomsen of M8audio will be exhibiting at this month's Melbourne International Hi Fi Show, October 12-14 and has accepted our invitation to present at the club following the show. Thomsen is originally from Denmark and moved to Australia in 2009 with his Australian wife. He's an electronics engineer by profession with a specialty in audio. He had been building speakers for years just for pleasure but in 2015 he decided to take his passion to another level - he founded his own speaker manufacturing business. The 'Sweet Maxwell' is the high-end speaker from M8audio that is based on Mark's ideas and experience. This large stand mount speaker uses a honeycomb braced cabinet using the brand's unique viscoelastic dampers. All the woodwork is done in-house using a state-of-the-art CNC router. The 100% hand finished cabinet is made from cross laminated European birch veneer. The speaker uses a 29mm Beryllium dome tweeter and a 7.5inch Egyptian papyrus cone low frequency driver with a neodymium motor. The electronic equipment that Mark will be using on the night are all new products and brands never before seen or sold in Australia. The DAC212SE by DiDit High-End is made in The Netherlands. The DAC is truly unique in its implementation of a balanced design that is more than just a pair of XLR output connectors. A Music Server from Belgium, the 432 EVO, will be providing all the music for the night. This two box unit can rip your CDs; play all your Hi-Res files up to 32bit PCM and DSD 128 and support HDMI Audio as well as USB. With a 2TB of storage it can hold up to 6000 CDs. Mark will also be introducing the distributor of the electronics, Ian Brown from Critical Sound New Zealand, as they will be sharing a room at the Hi Fi Show. So if you can't get to the show then don't miss out the club meeting. I'll be at both.

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.
