Our Tenth 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 tenth meeting!

We had our tenth meeting this last Sunday, (which was 5-18-14)

This time LVAC Founder and President Dave (who hosted our first and sixth meeting) once again hosted the affair, with his very good 2 channel system.

We had a wonderful time listening to a variety of tunes (CD and LP) on Dave's system. Including a first pressing of Miles Davis' 'Kind of Blue' album from Dave's collection, an audiophile favorite. Something in the system was different this time around! Instead of Dave's usual Bryston gear, LVAC member Mike was kind enough to bring over a little firecracker of a tube amp, a modified Heathkit AA-151 integrated. To everyone's surprise, the system had plenty of that good ol' "midrange magic," much like most of the systems we've heard here at the LVAC! It was mesmerizing and grabbed your attention completely. So much so that the intended shoot-out between Dave's Bryston gear and the Heathkit was scrapped because the Heathkit was that damn good! It sounded and played very well with Dave's JBL S4700 speakers, a amazing feat for a 7 Wpc integrated! As par for the course, pizza (which Mike graciously brought over from Naked City Pizza here in Las Vegas) and soft drinks were
served. And yes, once again a good time was had by everyone.

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!

Whoops! Sorry about the dirty plate!

The Heathkit integrated in all its glory!
