Saturday, May 13, 2:00 pm: The Minnesota DX Club meets here the second Saturday
of every month from January through June. Stop in and share your stories of long-distance
reception and learn about the latest receiving equipment.

Tuesday, May 16, 7:30 pm: The Audio Society of MN presents ...For our final meeting of the season, we are very fortunate to host Frank Van Alstine of Audio by Van Alstine, who is well known to us all, and will be showing two brand new AVA offerings.

First, AVA’s new DAC MK Five, which supports all bit rates up to PCM 192 and DSD 128 interchangeably, with no transition noise or drama between tracks of any bit rate or type. Two coax digital inputs, two optical digital inputs, and USB digital inputs are standard.

Second, AVA will present their new DVA 4/2 amplifier, producing 350 Watts per Channel (WPC) in stereo or 125WPC in discrete four channel mode. Very useful in a revealing stereo system or in a surround sound system, and is based on AVA’s Synergy solid state circuits with significant enhancements.

Lastly, Frank will bring an inexpensive UTurn Orbit turntable with Longhorn Grado cartridge and optional Grado 8MZ stylus, plus AVA’s Vision phono preamplifier. Combined with the ASM’s CD capabilities, members are encouraged to bring LPs or CDs for playback.
