We had our fourteenth meeting on 10-18-14.
For a list of equipment, check out our last blog post here:
The meeting took place at LVAC member Todd's place. This was Todd's first time hosting. You couldn't tell by the way Todd presented. He was very professional. And as you can see in the list of equipment via the link above, most of his components are vintage. You can't judge book by it's cover, and the vintage components put out a sound that was on a par with today's top stuff. It was dynamic, transparent, and had a visceral quality. Interestingly enough, more members preferred the oldie but goodie Klipsches (with Velodyne subwoofer) to the new flashy JBLs. Of course it was apples to oranges, but the fact remained, the modified Klipsches were the clear winner here. So, it was a very enjoyable experience to say the least, and most genres of music were played, leaning heavily towards classic jazz from the Blue Note and Atlantic labels. Overall a very successful meeting, and the food Todd provided (pizza and wings) was nothing short of excellent. So basically, once again good times were had by all. No one was disappointed. And that's the way it should be! That's how we roll here at the LVAC!
