DATE: Sunday, May 16, 2021, 7PM

PLACE: Zoom online

FEATURED GUEST: Barry Ober, Owner & Senior Audio Engineer, Subwoofer Evangelist:

TOPIC: A historical discourse session with our webmaster, Barry Ober.

You may wonder how a person immersed in the audio world for more than 60-years can still claim (???) sanity (???) and continue to prodigiously be involved with excellent products – loudspeakers, subwoofers, crossovers, recording studio consoles, test CDs, and tech support.

The list of Barry’s accomplishments includes designing and hosting the BAS website for 21 years. Barry has done it all: teaching, recording, mixing, mastering, circuit design, 2-channel and surround setups for trade shows and homes, systems in restaurants, discos, houses of worship, live mixing in local neighborhood bars... tech support, retail hi-fi, and more. Tune in and hear Barry rant about his lifetime experiences in audio!
