Meeting Notice for January 2020

Date: Sunday, January 12, 2020 (Note Date!)
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: At a home in Newton Center (email for directions )
Featured: Steve Hluchan, President of E-Coustic Systems, Belmont, MA

Subject: Designing a Near Perfect Loudspeaker

Steve has been designing speakers since he was 19. His newest design is a culmination of 50 years of research and speaker design. It is two-way speaker boasting a ribbon tweeter and a 7-inch full range semi-woofer. The crossover is phase coherent. In his home the new speaker replaced a modified AR3a and a pair of Quad ESL 63. His wife, a pianist, stated that the replacement speaker is more acoustically accurate. Members are encouraged to bring along a favorite CD for listening.

Steve Hluchan has a background in the Materials Science and International Business. He was in Senior Management at Pfizer and served as President and on the boards of many high quality, audio companies - Sausalito, Platinum Audio, Red Rose Music (Mark Levinson), and Fried Products. In addition, he specialized in Calcium Metal. Steve’s book is entitled Calcium and Calcium Alloys. He has a MBA from Harvard, a BA in Physics from UC Riverside, and he completed two years Graduate Studies in Quantum Mechanics at MIT.

Refreshments will be available at 5:30 PM

We need your help:

Due to new room charges and policies the BAS no longer has a meeting room at Boston University. Members of the society would like to hear from you regarding a new location for our meetings - office space, available libraries, or homes are great alternatives. Please contact David Hadaway with suggestions.
