October 2008 Meeting

Date: Sunday, October 19, 2008
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: Home of Tom Horrall
Featured Guest: Tom Horrall
Topic: The Home Audio System of Tom Horrall - Room Acoustics & Noise Control

Tom Horrall, now semi-retired, was formerly Technical Director and a Principal of Acentech, a multi-disciplinary consulting company and the only architectural and environmental acoustical company incorporated directly from a division of the founding company of Bolt Beranek and Newman (BBN). Mr. Horrall currently serves as consulting Chief Scientist of Cambridge Sound Management, an acoustical product development and marketing company 50% owned by Acentech.

The choice to have the meeting at Tom's was easy because he has a great sounding audio system and an architecturally designed and acoustically treated listening room and theater. His playback system includes B&W Matrix 800 Series II speakers, Propper Sound speakers for two back surrounds, four Boston Acoustics in-walls for supplementary surrounds, and a Sunfire subwoofer for up to 11 channels. Projection is via a JVC LCOS projector. Tom's talk will describe his audio system, and focus on room acoustics, noise control, and acoustical isolation issues.

Cookies and genuine Harvard cider will be served. Bring along your favorite CDs.
