It’s (Almost) Time…for Burning Amp 2011!

One of the true audiophile highlights of the year will be held on October 1st at Fort Mason in SF – Burning Amp.

Virtually mandatory for do-it-yourself (DIY) folks, I also recommend it for “general” audiophiles.

This year will feature a veritable “DIY God” – Douglas Self. I’m sure that I’m far from the only builder who got major acceleration from Mr. Self’s teachings.

Edit: The BA organizers are looking for help, especially in providing high-end digital and/or analog sources for the event. Contact info is on their site.

See you there,

Bob

Sonorus – Pure. Audiophile. Analog.

I’m a digital guy, buy I gotta say this is sexy. Recommended by Yarlung Records (which has released two hot-selling LPs and may release on tape). Get yours here. Note that they are coming out with amps and electrostats!

I will investigate for a BAAS event when the line is released.

Mainstream Disinterest – It’s Not Just High End Audio

The quote at left is from an editorial by Angus MacKenzie in the current motor trend.

I’m sure that the parallels with high-end audio (and woodworking, ham radio, and other traditional “manly pursuits”) are not lost on anybody.
