Audio Society Events
The Pacific Northwest Audio Society holds a number of special events each year,
which currently include The Annual Live vs. Recorded (LvR) event and on alternating years The Speaker Contest (for DIY speaker builders)
and The DIY Showcase. These events are open to the public.
The PNWAS Speaker Contest
Every even year, in the late summer, amateur speaker designers / builders from around the world gather with their latest speaker creations to
compete in this event. Whether you're entering speakers built from a kit or a pair you designed and built yourself we have a very
rigorous and objective judging system (all entries are completely blind), but in the end it's just for fun and a great time to learn and meet
Every odd year, in the late summer, audiophiles gather to show off their DIY gear. Whether you want to share a project you've built or see (and
hear) the work of others, this event is great inspiration for your DIY interests.
Occasionally, the Audio Society brings together a professional recording engineer and two very talented musical artists. These artists perform live
for our members and guests as our recording engineer captures the moment, then we replay the recording on a high performance system assembled by
the club and we hear how it compares to the live performance.
