August 10, 2019

Starting at 10am on Mercer Island we will hold the Puget Sound DIY Show This is a joint effort of the Pacific NorthWest Audio Society and the Sound DIY Club. This is not a contest as such, but rather a "run what ya brung" meet, that is open to all interested parties who would like to display, view or listen to DIY Audio equipment The event will also feature a swap meet, so you can trade no longer wanted items from your workshop that have previously managed (or not manged) to be part of a past project. The meet is scheduled to begin at 10am for the public. Parking is free and there is no admission fee. (If you have items to display, setup starts at 9:30am or so). We ask all interested parties that have gear they would like to show to let us know ASAP, in order to know how many tables, etc. we will need. If you bring bookshelf speakers, you may want to bring speaker stands from home. Hope to see you there!

Future, 2019 – Atma-Sphere Music Systems Event

Ralph Karsten of Atma-Sphere Music Systems will join us. This is an exciting and rare opportunity to meet Ralph, and hear directly from him all about the state of the art OTL amplification designs (OTL = Output TransformerLess). We will have the pleasure of listening and learning about the latest products from Ralph, including a balanced OTL pre-amp and either S-30 stereo or M-60 monoblock OTL power amp magic. This is an event you don’t want to miss!
