Dear members and friends of Sydney Audio Club,

 

Our first Club Meeting back at Dence Park will be on Sunday April 11th. We are very pleased to welcome back David Corazza from Sound And Music all the way from Moorabbin Victoria to present the Amphion Krypton speakers driven by the world exclusive preview of the new Perreaux 200iX amplifier and world exclusive preview of the new Perreaux App for iOS & Android.


The front end will be an Oppo unit.


David has been well received when he has presented equipment from Sound And Music to our club before with a lively and stimulating Q&A session. It promises to be another outstanding meeting to kick off our return to Dence Park after a long hiatus due to COVID Restrictions.


Amphion do speakers differently. Hailing from Finland, these speakers are refreshingly simple and unpretentious, yet offer a beguilingly effortless musicality. Externally, they evoke a uniquely Scandinavian aesthetic that is elegantly minimal, and quietly confident.


Details of the Amphion Krypton speakers:
They are hand made in Europe, very room friendly, having a directional response with very little side wall interaction with D’Appolito driver arrangement giving great coherency and focus. So they are easy to place in a room. They have a tweeter waveguide ensuring even dispersion and a low crossover point for the tweeter at 1600Hz ensuring good midband characteristics. Easy to drive, easy to live with.

Perreaux is a New Zealand based manufacturer of state-of-the-art hi fi audio components. MOSFET based, solid state hi fi audio amplifiers, hand-made with individually selected components by highly-skilled technicians. For over 40 years, Perreaux has almost single handedly championed the sonic virtues of MOSFET based amplification. Put simply, MOSFET based amplifiers (unlike conventional transistor or valve amplifiers), combine the benefits of both, but without the shortcomings of either.


Details of the new Perreaux 200iX amplifier:
With the re-launch of the company we bring you the World exclusive previews of the new 200iX amplifier and the new Perreaux App for iOS & Android - so new there is no webpage to view yet.


Also ….. (Very Important!!) David will be bringing up a secret Perreaux amplifier - a very limited production of 12 globally. There are only 9 available !
(Bespoke parts, totally hand assembled, and pretty much does everything most folk want).

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 or USB thumb/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.


*** IMPORTANT *** COVID GUIDELINES WILL STILL APPLY !!
Currently we are allowed 60 persons in the room, but with safe distancing we believe the practical limit will be less than that. The Epping Centre is very strict on this.

You will be required to sign in at the door, and one of the Committee will be watching.
You are not required to wear a mask but you may wish to do so.
Only one person at a time may use the kitchen, meaning the usual afternoon break will be impractical.

We recommend that you bring a drink (your own labelled screw top bottle) and a snack.
Given that these rules may change by the time April 16 comes around, please check for meeting updates closer to the date.

Venue: Epping Creative Centre, Dence Park
Address: 26 Stanley Road, Epping
When: Sunday 11th April 2021.
Doors open from 1pm to meet and chat with members.
Meeting starts at 2pm and finishes at 5pm.


Hope to see you there.
