July 2007 Meeting

Date: Sunday, July 29, 2007
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: Boston University, Life Science & Engineering Bldg, 24 Cummington St, 1st Floor Conference Room (room 203), Boston, MA 02215, (617) 271-6588

Topic: Comparison of Tube Amplifier and Transistor Amplifier Sound

Have you been wondering what you've been missing with your transistor amplifier? We will have a tube amplifier setup with loudspeakers and will compare the sound with a transistor amp, both in the linear region and when driven to overload. Test equipment will be displaying the measured performance. This is similar to tests done at the New York HiFi show.

Directions:  At Boston University, Cummington St is an east-west street just south of Commonwealth Ave. It is one-way going west. Parking on both Commonwealth Av and Cummington St. is free and available.

From Storrow Drive going east, take the first BU exit. At the stop sign turn right on Commonwealth Ave (A left is not permitted). Bear left and at the 3rd light take a u-turn, go half a mile and turn right on Blandford St. (at a traffic light) and turn right on Cummington St.

From Commonwealth Ave going west, after Kenmore Square, after the tracks come up out of the tunnel, turn left onto Blandford (at a traffic light). Then turn right onto Cummington St.

MBTA Green line - exit at Kenmore Square or the next stop, Blandford St. & Commonwealth Av. Walk a short distance and make a left turn onto Blandford St. and right onto Cummington St.
