Not as yet Marten, we were lucky enough to make a connection with the right person to facilitate the Melbourne presentation at relatively short notice, I don't yet have any contacts with the Sydney club, but I'd definitely put it on the drawing board.

 

I'll actually be in Sydney in a week or so to deliver our first products to a customer and see some other folks, so if you've got any suggestions for people to see or are there yourself and would like a demo, do get in contact - happy to follow up!

 

Cheers, Rick

Very kind of you Rick; it would be worth your while to get a filled room for a demo so I've sent a note to Tom Waters of the Sydney club suggesting he may approach you in that regard.

Hi Rick @coffeemachinist,

 

The Sydney Audio Club would be interested in a presentation of your speakers with active crossovers, room equalisation and DSP preamplifier, Hypex amps, Dirac Research.  And we have the perfect imperfect room to test it all out in.  Steve @chefscuba70and/or I will get back to you.  Thanks for your interest and kind offer, and our thanks to @marten for the heads-up.

 

Cheers

Tom

      Hulgich Audio & Holton Precision Audio

      8pm Wednesday 21st August

      Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices

      This month we have two interstate companies joining forces to present their Hi Fi products at the MAC. Both have exhibited together at the Melbourne International Hi Fi Show, winning "Best of Show Overall" for 2017 as well as "Best New Comer".
       
      Hulgich Audio is a new speaker company based in Adelaide headed by Nicolas Hulgich (pronounced Eu-Lich), who has spent more than twenty years in both Australia and his native Argentina building speakers with a variety of designs. He will be presenting to the club his statement speaker the 'Duke', with his in-house FTM (Feel The Music) speaker cable and interconnects.
       
      The 'Duke' is a 3-way floor stander designed as a dual enclosure. The upper enclosure houses a 1.2 inch dimple dome tweeter, and a 6 inch midrange made of papyrus fibres. The lower bass enclosure is a ported design that houses a 10 inch woofer also made of papyrus fibres. Hulgich has designed the 'Duke' to have a huge sweet spot and a large sound stage. By applying 'Low Diffraction Baffle Technology' (LDBT) that insures a smooth frequency response whether sitting off or on axis, and 'Coherent Sound Technology'( CST) which provides driver time alignment and phase integration.
       
      Nicolas will be playing his music with a modified OPPO 103 Multi-disc player and a AudioGD R8 Ladder Dac. Amplification is provided by Holton Precision Audio. Based in northern Tasmania, Anthony Holton has been designing and building high end amplifiers that have been demonstrated internationally at the 2018 Paris and Munich Hi-Fi Shows
       
      Anthony will be demonstrating two stereo amplifiers on the night, the Holton One-Zero-Zero Supreme (2x120W into 8 Ohms), and the Five-Zero-Zero Supreme (2x500W into 4 Ohms) with the matching Gain Block One Preamp. On static display will be a Phono Pre, while a 'DC Blocker One' will be used to look after the AC mains. This audio grade conditioner removes DC and filters the noise from the mains.
       
      With two presenters for the night, we are certainly going to have twice the value when it comes to sound quality. Not to be missed.

      Mark Doehmann and Tivoli Hi-Fi Presents

      8pm Wednesday 20th March, visitors welcome.

      Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices
      Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading
      Melway Map 48 Ref G9
      Contact: 9437 1249
       
      This month's Melbourne Audio Club meeting will be a collaboration between two presenters. Mark Doehmann the turntable engineer / designer and Tivoli Hi-Fi, Melbourns longest running high-end retail outlet. Both will have a system to demonstrate from their portfolio of hi-fi products.
       
      Mark is best known for his high-end turntable designs, having broken new ground in class leading performance by pushing the envelope and challenging the status quo. He has a well-respected track record for innovation and design for both turntables and tonearms. He will present on the new features and sounds of his Helix 1 and model 2 turntable.
       
      Ypsilon Audio is a brand that has established it's self in the high-end scene, which Mark has introduced to the Australian market. There latest product the Phaeton, is an integrated hybrid design with a single-ended Class A performance with the power of a push-pull, at 110W into 8 ohms. Accompanying the amplifier will be a pair of German Physiks Omni direction speakers.
       
      The second system from Tivoli Hi-Fi will also feature a pair of Omni Directional speakers. The brand is well known for its futurist looking active loudspeakers; these will be from B&O. At the time of this article, Tivoli was still finalising which B&O model they will bring on the night. They will have a music server from Cocktail Audio, in fact two models the X30 and the X45, a streamer and CD ripper for us to listen too.
       
      The Hi -Fi industry comprises a large diversity of people, who are pursuing their passion to improve our audio experiences; this month's meeting will be a night not to be missed.

      The ATC SCM19A Active Speaker

      8pm Wednesday 20th February, visitors welcome.

      Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices
      Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading
      Melway Map 48 Ref G9

      The Acoustic Transducer Company, ATC for short, is one of a handful of pro-audio companies to have crossed over successfully into the Hi Fi arena. The company was founded back in 1976 by Billy Woodman, an Australian acoustician who developed the famous 3 inch soft dome mid-range driver for professional monitor speakers. Many audiophiles would be very familiar with the domestic range of ATC speakers, with numerous reviews in many magazines.
       
      JAG Imports will be presenting at the club the latest active speaker from the new 'Entry Series', the SCM 19A. The least expensive active floorstander in the range, this two way model stands just under a meter high and carries a 182 Watt power pack that is installed in the bottom half of the tower. The 150mm Mid/Bass driver is powered with 150 watts while the 25mm Soft Dome Tweeter receives 32 watts. The Mid/Bass employs ATC's new 'ground-breaking' Super Linear Technology, said to reduce third harmonic distortion by 10-15dB between 100Hz and 3KHz. The tweeter employs a unique dual suspension system suppressing diaphragm rocking modes.
       
      Keep in mind that because it is an active design, a number of compromises have been eliminated from their passive twin. With the implementation of an electronic x-over in the amp module, the passive crossover network components have been removed and thus are no longer subjected to vibrations from the internal back wave of the drivers. The biamplified system is able to power the drivers without the significant power losses of a passive network. Separate active circuits can individually control magnitude and phase allowing both to be optimised, and minimising speaker cabling allows you to control the bass driver by maximising the damping factor.
       
      The SCM19A is an important addition to ATC's extensive domestic lineup. The combination of power handling, ruggedness and lack of colouration are qualities that make ATC speakers a leading product.

      A Raspberry Pi Music Night

      8pm Wednesday 16th January, visitors welcome.

      Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices
      Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading
      Melway Map 48 Ref G9

      This month's Melbourne Audio club meeting will be entirely presented to you by your committee members. They will present to the club a selection of music from their favourite CDs. It could be a track from their 'desert island discs' or a recent purchase.
       
      To ensure that we get through as many different tracks, I've requested that each track be no more than 5 minutes long. This will get us through plenty of music before the coffee break. While it's good to have a music program of varied tastes, the audio system to play it on, will be just as interesting.
       
      Chris M will start off the night with his 'Raspberry Pi' Music Server. This super versatile palm-sized computer was developed in the UK to promote teaching of basic computer science in schools. Now in its third generation, many DIY groups have developed several different uses for this computer, everything from a Home Weather Station to a Media Server for your television.
       
      The 'Pi' has its own Wi-Fi output as well as four USB2 connections. Chris operates the unit from a tablet with a modified program called Moode. His music selection will be sourced from a USB drive while his latest DAC, XMOS U8 which uses an AKM chip from their 'Velvet Sound' generation, will take care of the sound. An OPPO multi disc player will also be available on the night for the other members to play their discs.
       
      This would be a good opportunity for all members who are new to the club, as well as the regulars, to discover some new sounds. I'm sure the guys on the committee will do their best to present a thoroughly satisfying night of music.
