Special Guest: Ed Meitner, Meitner Audio
ED MEITNER has been creating state-of-the-art professional and audiophile products for decades. He created the world’s first VCA-controlled audiophile preamplifier. The first commercially available cryogenically treated audio cables. The legendary BiDat converter. The coveted MTR-101 amplifier. When Sony and Philips needed to transform SACD from an intriguing concept into a sonic reality, they turned to one of the world's leading experts in digital converter design: Ed Meitner. Ed designed the first complete multichannel DSD playback system from disc to preamplifier and till today many studios and mastering facilities still use Ed’s professional DSD/PCM converters as their de-facto reference. Ed’s focus has always been singular—addressing the needs of his customers and in so doing, creating music production and reproduction equipment that's unerringly faithful to the music itself.
Times: Ed will be available at 1606 to meet and greet and to answer questions about our products and audio in general from 12pm till closing.

Cartridge alignment: hear the difference

Vinyl playback is a complex interaction of many mechanical factors. Various parts are composed to work together in order to convert the LP-groove into an electrical signal. During this seminar, we will not only focus on the theoretical principals, but get a specific listening on the impact of cartridge- and tonearm- adjustment.
A sophisticated setup allows us to demonstrate specific errors on the same turn-table, which makes this seminar a unique experience.
