Previous Meeting Pgm Notes – Lyn Stanley Returns

Sunday, Sept 13, 2015


Lyn is like a fine wine… she just keeps getting better. Her performance was more polished, her voice even better this time than last November. Once again she provided a meeting packed with information, music, and fun! In my personal opinion, her voice is more assured, her intonation is spot on, and even though it has been used lots lately, even more powerful than last time. What a program she put on! We heard about what she had been doing in the recording studio and the remix of the first side of her first recording, “Lost in Romance” and its reissue. Listening to her sing accompaniment to her recordings it was readily apparent that the power and clarity of her voice easily surpassed even the extremely fine playback system present!  (More about that in a minute) In addition to listening to 16/44.1 data files of her recordings, we also heard vinyl played on the club's turntable and the master-tape of her latest recording on an upgraded Revox A77 Reel-to-Reel deck. Interestingly, the sound from the tape deck was the closest we heard all day to her live voice. Many of the attendees were taken aback by the high quality of that playback. We wrapped up by raffling off two of her records and two of her SACDs as well as speaker cables, interconnects, and CDs donated by Dr. Phil.


Our system was provided by Joseph Strovas of Integrity HiFi who provided for the first time hearing by a US audio group the new bespoke Margules Orpheus Speakers. These are basically an artisanal production and none of these speakers is available “off the shelf”. Each pair is custom built for the owner after the order and build choices are received. I found them to be the best use I have ever heard of the highly fragile and expensive ceramic drivers used. I was quite surprised at how warm and yet still highly detailed the drivers were in this installation. Not what I was expecting from them at all. The rest of the system was basically all Margules except for the turntable and tape deck. I’ll leave further description of this system for the meeting minutes!


I keep wondering every time we have a meeting with this level of enjoyment, “how are we going to beat this”? Stay tuned!

 Future Meeting

Join with us and Jacques Riendeau for a first rate showcase and demonstration of the famed Oracle Turntables and Electronics from Ontario Canada. Meet the man behind much of the great precision technologies from the famed Oracle Company.

There will be a Christmas Party... Lee Tingler has once again volunteered his home and since he and Jim Petrone have re-furbished the movie sound system, I suspect we'll be watching another great Christmas Movie and eating lots of great food!!
