McIntosh Headlines Successful Event at Century Stereo

BAAS members were treated to a great program at last Saturday’s listen & learn session at Century Stereo in San Jose.

Multiple well-appointed rooms were in play, staffed by knowledgeable experts from the vendors. Highlights included:

  • All about room treatments (PMI). Why passive treatments still matter, even when EQ/signal processing are used.
  • Power conditioning intro (Furman). Is there a difference? Is the conditioned sound truly better? At what price?
  • McIntosh Line Array Loudspeakers and Lyngdorf technology. Ever heard a line array? Ever heard these? 110 drivers! Also, how digital signal processing (DSP) can auto-EQ and adjust/widen the “sweet spot.”
  • Audio cable technology update from China (Tributaries/Clarus). Video conference with cable pioneer Jay Victor. Why geometry matters, and where Chinese (and Japanese) manufacturing fits in.
  • High Resolution Video/Audio by Kaleidescape. What Bluray brings to digital audio, and how the Kaleidescape technology can make powerful video/music servers easy. amazing system.

A ton of great learning, pleasurable listening, and audiophile camaraderie.
