Upcoming Meetings

October 5th, 2019

Time: 1pm – 4:30pm Place: Mercer Island Congregational Church (usual club meeting place)

Next Saturday, October 5th, the PNWAS will host a presentation by Gary Koh of Genesis Advanced Technologies. Gary will discuss the remixing of a digital recording to analog with examples of the process. Then he will play a test pressing of the result - a One-Step UHQR. (There is also a possibility that Gary will bring a VPI HW-40 on which to do the demo.) Finally, Gary will discuss the development of the Genesis Phono Preamplifier, an example of which he has donated to the club. Meeting will be held at the Mercer Island Congregational Church starting at 1PM. IMPORTANT: There is no meeting on September 7th to avoid conflict with Rocky Mountain Audio Festival as some members will be attending it. Instead, we will meet on September 14th.


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!
