Society a rare chance to catch-up on internal

right time to return to in-house meetings?
David Hadaway will present
his latest, well researched consumer information.
Alvin Foster will talk about his latest good
findings on the Zoom multichannel recorder,
and his disaster experience with the DSPs
The second agenda item
will include catching up on writeups of previous

From the June 2021 Stereophile:
HiFi by the Pound? From
the PrimaLuna ad: "$9k for a 15lb preamp?!
If you want to
pay $9,000 for a 15 lb preamp with mediocre
parts, thats your business. If you want
to pay 4,699 for a 53lb preamp crafted with
the finest exotic parts, thats our business.

of it: a calliope in southern New Jersey.
Requirements: ~two hours of music; anticipating
two-mike stereo on one side, same on the other,
plus a single mike at the end where the drum
is located. Recording at 24bit/96k per channel
is required. The time frame is within the

the project manager.

MICROPHONE CLINIC REPORT !
|In September 2009
the B A S held a microphone clinic, testing 37 different
microphone models. The ambitious nature of the clinic
effort, the extent of data collection, the number
of individuals involved in microphone testing and
in writing various sections of the report, and the
complexity in determining how to construct the clinic
report and make it available to members resulted it
not being published until now. The dataset is extensive.
Representative samples were
included in the abbreviated report in "The
B A S Speaker"
(Fall 2015; v37n3)
Go to the MICROPHONE
CLINIC PAGE for more...
and plotting "noisy" data
it is often useful to have Microsoft
Excel plot a Trend Line through it.
If that data is to be used for
further work, it may be necessary to
have an X-Y table of the Trend Line.
That is not easy to get and this paper
will show how to do it.
