Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Audio Society
The Pacific Northwest Audio Society has been dedicated to the exploration and enjoyment of fine music and electronics since its founding in 1978. We're audiophiles and music lovers with diverse backgrounds and a range of interests in music and audio reproduction. Although the Society is based in the Seattle area we serve the entire Northwest region and draw enthusiasts from as far as Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia, for new and exciting audio adventures.
Our membership network includes a number of top audio experts from the Northwest and around the world. Check out our Membership page to learn how you can become a member. For about the price of a latte each month you'll support the Audio Society's ongoing efforts and gain a plethora of benefits for yourself in the process. If you’re in the area, drop in for a meeting and see for yourself what the club is all about.
Thursday, July 10th, 2014 - Summer Social and BBQ (in Newcastle)
Our July 10th meeting will be our annual summer social event and BBQ. This year's party will be held at club member and former club president Andrew Kosobutsky's house in Newcastle, WA. Andrew has a wonderful listening room and will be spinning vinyl (and digital if you insist) from his extensive collection strictly for our listening pleasure.
Andrew's system features the Forsell Air Reference turntable with Ortofon Anna cartridge and Manley Steelhead preamp/phono stage, Evolution Acoustics MMThree speakers driven by the DartZeel NHB-108 amp, all wired with premium cables and power conditioning. There will not be a formal program for this event; members and guests are encouraged to socialize, eat, and sample the audio treats. Andrew's listening room is of modest proportions, so sweet-spot sharing and seat swapping will be necessary to allow everyone an opportunity to listen.
On the culinary menu for this event will be grilled burgers and hot dogs. We encourage members to contribute side dishes, salads, or desserts, and your beverage of choice.
Street parking is somewhat limited, so we encourage you to carpool if possible. This event is one of the most enjoyable events of the year. Don't miss it.
On Thursday, August 14th the Audio Society team up with the Seattle Head-Fi crowd to welcome Doc Bottlehead and Clark Blumenstein (of West Seattle’s Blumenstein Audio). Doc has just a released a new DAC kit that sounds amazing and Clark has been working on a new floorstander design. In addition, there will be time before the meeting and an extended break, to give you an opportunity to experience some very advanced headphone setups. If you love high-sensitivity speakers with tubes or headphones, this promises to be a banner meeting.
