Our Ninth Meeting

Ok, fellow audiophiles in the Las Vegas area and everywhere really (this is the world wide web after all,) the first audio club ever in Sin City, has now completed its ninth meeting!

We had our ninth meeting 2 Saturdays ago, (which was 4-19-14)

This time LVAC member Tony (who hosted our fourth meeting) once again hosted the affair, with his excellent 2 channel system.

We had a wonderful time listening to a variety of tunes (via digital server, reel to reel tape, CD and LP) on Tony's system. The system had plenty of that good ol' "midrange magic," which you would have to hear to know what I'm talkin' about! It was mesmerizing and grabbed your attention completely. Gourmet pizza and beer was served, and it really was good times once again. Kudos to Tony for such a top notch presentation!

Right now we have 12 members, and we're looking for a few more good audiophiles in the Vegas area and beyond.

Again, meetings will be once a month.

So, don't be shy, we'd love to have you for the next meeting, and as of now it's still free to join!

Photos of the system are below. Photos were taken by Tony.

The system was the same as the fourth meeting.


There are some slight changes to the system which Tony will elaborate on. Visual evidence is below.

"Set up remains basically unchanged from last meeting. Latest update is a wired Ethernet networked computer audio set up. First photo shows the Synology NAS that houses the server software and music folder, the MacMini that streams video, and an Ethernet switch that ties the NAS, MacMini, and Apple Airport Extreme Time Machine router (not pictured) together. Second photo shows the Resolution Audio Cantata Music Center with UPnP/DLNA rendering capabilities that is also wired via Ethernet to the switch. No music software or iTunes or any other pieces to get in the way of streaming the music. Ethernet provides the least path of resistance, especially versus USB. The last photo is the stacked decks that I now use for tape playback and recording."
