Monthly Meeting
Registration is not Required
The Audio-Video Club of Atlanta will be meeting in the Hope Classroom of the Oak Grove United Methodist Church from 2 PM until 5 PM on Sunday, June 11, 2017.

Member Lee Scoggins, a reviewer for parttimeaudiophile.com, had the new Benchmark AHB2 power amp (designed specifically for use with their new DAC3) in for review and was subsequently able to arrange for the use of a new DAC3 for this meeting.  We couldn't afford to pass up the opportunity for the club to get an early listen to this combination and we quickly agreed once Gary gave us the go-ahead.

We'll still be listening to the club's two-ways, just digital instead of analog. Chuck Bruce has volunteered his Oppo 105-D universal player so you can bring CDs, SACDs, DVD-As or anything that can play through a USB port.

As an extra added attraction, Ted Denney of Synergistic Research has provided a full set of his upper range cables including USB, SP/DIF, interconnect and speaker cables.


Lee will also be showing off digital playback via the latest version of Amarra software on his Apple laptop.
