Topic: David Moulton's Beolab 5 Loudspeakers
The April BAS meeting will feature Dave Moulton demonstrating his new, "Acoustic Lens", BeoLab 5 loudspeakers. Moulton
teamed with Bang & Olufsen to develop the four way, 2,500 watt, self-powered, self-calibrating speaker, which features complex electronic processing
and two ellipse based lenses. The speakers sell for $16,000 a pair
Moulton is well known in the Boston area for his recording work, acoustical consulting, and classes in acoustics and recording
techniques. He started his career studying composition at the Juilliard. In 2002 he was nominated for a Grammy, for his work on George Crumb's "Ancient
Voices of Children. His classes, offered in conjunction with Parson's Audio, start with "Golden Ears", his ear training class on CD, and culminate
in team listening and acoustics workshops.
Moulton is hosting the demonstration, with assistance from the Boston Bang & Olufsen store, at the Moulton Lab's Groton studio.
www.moultonlabs.com/gear.htm The demonstration will feature a full surround setup
of BeoLab 5 speakers. It should be quite amazing.
The Boston Globe did a good write-up on Moulton and the BeoLab 5 speakers: www.boston.com/ae/music/articles/2004/02/03/a_sound_idea/
He spoke before the BAS in 1999 on Small Room Acoustics (v22n5,6).
