• Computer Audiophile At The 129th AES Convention

    Just a quick update on my plans to attend the 129 AES Convention in San Francisco November 3rd through 7th. The Audio Engineering Society Conventions are nothing like a traditional high-end audio show. There are vendors demonstrating equipment at AES, but the the event is much more about knowledge, engineering and the direction of the audio industry. At first blush this show may not readily appear relevant to many audiophiles. However, a glance at the workshops, tutorials, master classes, platinum events, and technical tours is enough to get any audiophile and music aficionado excited. Plus, the opportunity to discuss the future of high resolution music, downloads, and computer audio with the engineers involved and the companies capable of offering this content is priceless. I plan to attend a high resolution computer based playback session that includes panelists, among others, Daniel Weiss from Weiss Engineering and Andy McHarg from dCS. Read more for a look at some of the sessions taking place at the 129th AES Convention in San Francisco.


    Here is a link to the AES website for more information and a link to the 129th Convention calendar.

      What would really be fun for those of us that did not attend would be if you could post on this cite any white papers or brochures you may have obtained on the topics listed above, if you indeed have any.

      I suggest that anyone really interested in the history and future of audio, join the AES. They have always been at the forefront of audio innovation.

      There will be two meetings of the Toronto Section this month. At the Tuesday 23 November 2010 meeting John Vanderkooy will present "a review of the papers presented at this year's AES conventions in San Francisco. For those who couldn't attend the conventions, this is an excellent opportunity to get an overview of the papers presented in an informative and digestible format. <br />
      <br />
      Various Workshop, Tutorials, Master class and Exhibition Floor reviews from the convention will be provided by AES Chair Sy Potma and other exec members as time permits."<br />

      That is a good suggestion for a number of reasons. After I made the suggestion that Chris post any material he may have received at the AES Convention on this site, I went to the AES website and noted that they have their written papers for sale so any posting on this site without their permission is probably a copyright violation. Looks like if you want to read their material you gotta pay the price, although some of the material may be for public dissemination.
