Chicago Audio Society meeting: Sunday September 18, 2005
We will be featuring Van L Speakerworks with John Van Leishout presenting the latest revision of his Quartet speaker system. We had John and designer Chuck McShane present this speaker at our old Dance Building location (Des Plaines) a number of years ago. It features a unique crossfeed design that uses an additional speaker wire between the two speakers to capture ambience. The speaker has been through a number of design changes and tweaks by John over the years. The associated electronics will include a Cary tube amp, Cary upsampling CD player and a custom octal tube line stage. The circuit in the speaker has evolved from a similar MARS circuit that was used in some Fried speakers about 10 years back. This is the only production speaker at this time that I am aware of that utilizes an ambience circuit. For more information go to: http://www.vanlspeakerworks.com/
