Spearheading the LSAF 2024 demo system of PureArtFi, Miller Audio LLC, and Audio Crafters Guild will be the LS-6 monitor. A full range standmount combining the breakthrough Purifi loudspeaker drivers with master level cabinet work the LS-6 redefines its category. Yes a bold statement, drop by our room at LSAF in Dallas June 7-9 and hear for yourself. The PureArtFi LS-6 is a collaboration between master cabinet maker Paul Stover and audio designer Norman Tracy. The extreme cabinet resonance suppression measures Tracy's designs require dovetail perfectly with the solid hardwoods and precision fabrication Stover's decades serving the high end homebuilding industry in Colorado provide. The LS-6 pair slated for demo at LSAF feature solid walnut front baffles and stand plates along with shop sawn 1/8" thick spalted hackberry veneered enclosures. Hidden inside the square edge modern enclosures are potted crossovers and limp mass damping elements addressing mechanical and acoustics resonances. Quieting those driver reaction forces noise sources further reveal the musical effects of the Purifi's breakthrough reductions of distortion and other non-linear behaviors.

Another LSAF 2024 preview, thanks to regular LSAF contributor, Norman Tracy:

Mike Lundy of Uilleam Audio (https://uilleamaudio.com) describes the system he will demo as the GR Research NX-Studio Monitors paired with speaker stands, also designed by GR Research, that have dual 8" servo sub drivers built in. While the back of the stands is open, they perform like a slotted rear port instead of an open baffle and can therefore be placed much closer to the front wall than open baffle subs can. This preserves the ability of the studio monitors to be placed closer to the front wall while extending the bass of the studio monitors. Instead of starting to roll off around 70Hz like the monitors alone do, when combined with the sub stands, the roll off begins about 30Hz with a -3dB point around 27Hz. I say around and about because, while the servo drivers can play flat to 20Hz, the actual response at the listening position varies depending on the room and setup. Electronics are a full stack of PS Audio including BHK preamp, DirectStream DAC MK2, PerfectWave SACD transport, and M series amps plus the woofer stands' servo-amps in this bi-amped reference system. Photos show system tuning in Mike's listening room.

Another debut at LSAF 2024 is Miller Audio's Dyna-120:


/forum/index.php?t=getfile&id=3430&private=0

Miller Audio proudly introduces our new 60-watt per-channel KT-88 / 6550 Push-Pull Vacuum Tube Amplifier. Based on our original Dyna-70 Ultimate Upgrade audio system amplifier, it features the same great-sounding Audio & Power Supply Drive circuit card & 6SN7 preamp tubes as used in the Dyna-70. You are assured of a great sound experience with proven performance from our many satisfied Dyna-70 Ultimate Amplifier customers. Like the Dyna-70, the Dyna-120 is available in Manual Bias (standard) or Automatic Bias (optional) models. All appearance and upgrade options for the Dyna-70 are also available for the Dyna-120.
Another really fun exhibitor slated to return for LSAF 2024 is Pete Millett who shares a room with his design client Artisan Fidelity and enclosure supplier Landfall Systems. One never knows what new goodies Pete and crew will show up with, for me it is like Christmas morning walking in their room to see and hear his latest HiFi designs. The emission and expert control of electrons in vacuums, high voltages, high efficiency speakers, and refined engineering and design aesthetic are constants in Millett's rooms. Here are a couple of examples of what we might be hearing.

We'll be bringing something "new" to LSAF 2024:


https://PiSpeakers.com/photos/threePi_2024.jpg
All Italian three π model loudspeaker

Funny thing is this speaker was actually the result of a 2019 design effort, so it's not really all that new. It's about five years old.

You can read about it in the thread called, "Definimax 4012HO - End of Life." Eminence had discontinued their high-end drivers with shorting rings, so I needed a high-quality replacement and this loudspeaker is the result.

But while I was getting close to the finishing touches of this design in June 2019, before I had the chance to unveil it, the corona-weirdness started and I haven't been to a show since.

I had a little thing in my head that I'd have a "Ford versus Ferrari" pair in my stables, with the four π model being the "Ford," having the best of American parts and the three π would be the "Ferrari," having all-Italian drivers.

But then, last year, B&C bought Eminence making them more of a multi-national company. Laughing

Still, I am proud to show you the latest three π model at LSAF 2024. It's sounds smoooooth and I think it's sexy as hell!

Your rooms look awesome!

I'm loaded in and setup too, but I'm too tired to click any pics. Will take a few pics tomorrow.

And Kelly will go to all the rooms, record everyone's room numbers and start getting photos in each room.

We'll get the room numbers added/updated on the post earlier in this thread by early tomorrow.
