  • Acoustic Development V in Hot Springs, Arkansas

    June 12-14 we will have a gathering of audio lovers to show off DIY speakers, amps, whatever. This will be the closing weekend for the Hot Springs Music Festival so if you bring your significant other you can listen to live music. I can offer housing again at $25 a night in a double room with two single mattress beds. It is in our residence hall that was built three years ago. The school, ASMSA, is located right at the end of downtown and the National Park. This is a pretty low key affair, almost a show and tell. We usually get together for meals and most of the restaurants are within walking distance. If you significant other does come with you it is called the Spa City because there are spas all over the place including the Buckstaff in historic Bath House Row. Feel free to contact me by private message.

        Heard from Dave (TN) and Nathan (TX) and they both said they were planning on making it. Blair has other plans and nothing from Mark (TX) yet. Hopefully Tom (AR) will chime in soon. As the schedule comes out for Friday and Saturday for the Music Festival I will post a link. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

          I will plan on attending. These have always been great events. I might even bring something this year.

              Hi this is William. I'm probably going to make it again this year. Let me know if I need to bring some electronics. Have a decent Emotiva DAC and a few solid state amps. Have finished the NaO Note II RS build but I'll need some help moving all of this stuff inside if you're interested to hear these. It may be a better idea for me to bring the recently finished Auricles with the redwood burl veneer. These have the Satori woofer with the Raal ribbon tweeter. I may have a pair of 88 specials also finished from DIY sound group but no guarantees.

                Tote the Notes. I will most likely come to hear those.

                  I'll bring some bi-amped stuff. I am looking to build a new low XO 2-way. I have several possibilities for the tops.

                    Interested in the low XO 2-ways if you get them done...

                      I am more than willing to help get theses packed up and in/out of the event. We are not short on helping hands. Now really nice dipole speakers ,on the other hand, we are in short supply!

                      Steve

                      I have any amount of moving blankets, bubble wrap, or boxes you need to help get the dipoles secured for transport. PM me if you need anything.

                        Guess I'm gonna have to get busy with my perpetually-unfinished project.

                        Does anyone remember what wood finish was recommended to me last year over beer and cheese?

                            I think I recall hearing waterlox mentioned. There are some good youtube videos about using it.

                              Bill, I'm sure I did not offer anything helpful about wood work. Further more @Rolandos (which is amazing food FYI) I am way too busy getting full and adding a few beers to come up with anything that might be helpful.

                              I am looking at bringing some things down......they will of course be half finished oddball things like I always do.

                              Just taking a poll: Do my oddball projects garner any interest or am I just adding extra clutter to the room?

                              I found the source of the buzz on the Amp Camp Amps I had last year. The RCA plug was making oh so little contact with the chassis and caused a random ground loop. I wish these got a better chance to play last year!
