November Virtual Meeting - Interview with Ken Kessler!

Below you can click through photos of past meetings.

We are excited to present an interview with Ken Kessler, well known hi-fi industry journalist.

Audio Research Corporation commissioned Mr. Kessler to produce a gorgeous anthology, "Making the Music Glow," celebrating the 50 year history of the company. Ken has been writing about audio for 38 years, principally for the British publication HiFi News and Record Review as well as the SoundStream website. A short time ago we interviewed Ken via Zoom to get the inside scoop on the book for Members at our November meeting.

Here is a link to the book: https://audioresearch.com/audio-research-making-the-music-glow/

In addition to an in-depth description of the book's contents and the historical research that went into its production, during the interview Ken also talked extensively about his history as a reviewer of both hardware and software, his process for conducting reviews, and his sometimes controversial opinions about equipment and how other reviewers approach their work.

Please note: In a departure from our usual presentation schedules, this interview is already available for viewing and will remain so through the month of November.

This presentation will not be limited to a Tuesday evening.



This is a must-see for all audiophiles! Viewing is free for all, but you’ll have to be on your own for light refreshments.

This will be the final presentation of the year, and we’ll pick up again in January, 2021.

For those who missed our very interesting October SoundSmith ZOOM presentation, it is available here:


For the 2020-21 season we are moving all ASM events online. We still intend to offer a full schedule of online meetings and events. There are a number of options being considered including manufacturer videos, special guests, DIY features, member systems, music and equipment reviews, and Zoom meetings, among others.

Some meetings may be available in real time and others on demand.

We ask for your patience as we move into this new world of distance audiophilia! Meeting announcements will be posted here and on our Facebook page as available.
