The redesigned AudioAmateur.com website is now up and running. As you’ll see, it is a more modern, user-friendly website than its predecessor. You can access your digital subscription to audioXpress as well as read feature articles, interviews, member profiles, and news. I encourage everyone to bookmark the site and visit each day. Stay informed!
Now let’s focus on this issue.
Did you attend the 2012 Munich High End Audio Fair? If not, no worries. Ward Maas walked the floor and took copious notes on interesting audio products and systems (p. 12).
In the first part of his series on electrostatic speakers (audioXpress9/12), Richard Mains provided tips for selecting the proper materials for an electrostatic loudspeaker (ESL) project. This month he covers the fabrication process (p. 22).
Turn to page 26 for a thoughtful product review. Gary Galo provides an analysis of Monarchy Audio’s SE-100 MK2and SM-70 amplifiers.
This month’s interview is fascinating (p. 32). Walt Jung’s interesting life and audio-related work will inspire you to learn, design, and write.
On page 8, Mike Klasco and Steve Tatarunis describe what’s behind a speaker cone. They detail the functionality of speaker stuffing.
Are you engaged in the “sound system debate”? On page 18, Richard Honeycutt investigates the differences between hollow-state and solid-state amps.
The last article in this issue is a thorough review of B&C’s new 18” woofer (p. 38). According to Vance Dickason, “the 18TBW100 uses a ferrite motor design, which is probably going to be the trend in pro woofer design until neo’s prices drop to a more competitive level.”
The October issue is now available.
