Since 1993 he devoted his time to recording, composing, research and writing. At present, he operates Moulton Laboratories/Digital Media Services in Groton, MA.


In 2002 Moulton received a joint Grammy nomination with engineer Curt Wittig for their work on a CRI compact disc (in Circle Surround) of George Crumb’s "Ancient Voices of Children”. As a recording engineer, Moulton has also worked with the Concord String Quartet, jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins, folk singer Jonathan Edwards, pianist Robert Jordan, soprano Kyoko Saito and the Handel & Haydn Society, among many others.

Moulton is a principal in Sausalito Audio, a firm specializing in wide-dispersion loudspeakers. This effort has led to the groundbreaking BeoLab 5 loudspeaker, a B&O audio system for Audi (available in the 2006 Audi A8) and BeoLab 3. (BAS meeting April 2004, BASS 26-3).

Moulton has also been involved, with his son Dr. Mark Moulton, in the subjective measurement of audio systems and devices for companies such as Lucent Technologies.

2nd December 2010 Meeting

Date: Sunday, December 19, 2010
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: Boston University, Life Science & Engineering Bldg, 24 Cummington St, 1st Floor Conference Room (Room 103), Boston, MA 02215, (617) 271-6588

Featured Guest: BAS members
Topic: Favorite recordings and White Elephant Sale

BAS members will have a chance to showcase their favorite recordings. This includes commercial recordings that you have enjoyed over the years. This is your chance to be more than a passive member of the BAS. We will have a quality system for CD playback. If you have any special AV requirements, contact us. Please limit your demo to 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the number of participants.

Bring along anything audio-related you wish to sell, exchange, get rid of and never want to see again. That includes old receivers, tuners, amplifiers, CDs, tape decks, Elcaset players, Shakti Stones that have lost their zip, and anything else. The agenda/purpose is to rid you of equipment that would otherwise collect dust or go unused for another year. The equipment or materials you bring do not have to be working, but it should be of some interest to a society of members who possess a broad imagination and an expansive interest in everything, The meeting will be of particular interest to people who are unable to throw anything away; you can sell it if the price is right.

Refreshments will be provided at 5:30.
