2015 August - Floyd W.
Floyd and his wife we’re very welcoming and we all got a chance to do some good listening in his well sounding room.
Floyd gave us a small presentation on his Dirac Live Room Correction.
Graz gave an explanation on the myriad of upgrades performed on the Apogee Duetta Signatures.
The vinyl aficionados were well catered to.
Highlights included a gorgeous track by Youn Sun Nah and the theme from Marlboro cigarettes (no political correctness here) / Magnificent Seven movie soundtrack like many have never heard before.
Pete Ashton supplied a CD featuring Japanese drum music (unfortunately I didn’t get the title) that caught my ear.
Members in the know, sneaked down to Floyd’s granny flat and had a good intimate listening session on his second system.
The Apogee Centaurs certainly filled the small listening room.
