TOPIC:
Larry Musial, one of our members, will be presenting his Klipsch La Scala
speakers which were shown at last January's meeting. Larry, who is involved
with the Klipsch users group has been busy with further developments. He has
added an integral ported platform to the La Scalas which enables the speaker
to go to 30Hz without using a subwoofer. Also, further internal wiring
improvements have been made. The speakers will be driven directly with Bizzy
Bee TAD-1000 100 watt per channel tube monoblocks. The amps have an integral
volume control and will be driving the speakers directly. In addition Larry
will demo Klipsch RB-35 monitors which he modified to demonstrate
performance possible from a readily available inexpensive speaker using a
good inexpensive mod approach. A modified Ogre Systems Magnavox CD player
will be used.

We will be taking the first half-hour of the meeting for any members who
attended the Rocky Mountain AudioFest in September (and the recent CES) to
recount their experiences.

This should be a great meeting for anyone interested in horns, tube amps,
good DIY approaches, and good sound. Remember to bring along a favorite CD.
We always want to hear good music of all kinds.
