Our event on 12th September was sparsely attended but we had an interesting time none the less.  There were two slightly modified power amps present, playing via the club's peripherals. 

Jason presented a taste of his idea of development of speakers, all individually driven with its own amplifier, controlled by a digital crossover which can tailor the frequency presented to each speaker but can also time-align each driver

This became immediately apparent when listening to music, whereupon the soundstage became wide and deep

Our thanks to our host, Andrew at his home in Rondebosch

I would have loved this, but was not able to attend. Looks rather cosy!
