Blind test in Spain

For those of you interested on or curious about blind testing, we have published on our web site the results and methodology used last time (accomodating some of the hot issues regarding blind tests such as test time, abx boxes, pressure, music choice) while meeting in our annual gathering nearby Madrid last may.

We did translate it to english for the benefit of the many readers that visits our audio society's web site but cannot make much of it, unfortunately. In time, most of the articles will be posted in english. This is our first trial in Shakespeare's language .

You might want to learn about our audio society, we have it listed right here on Stereophile's main site:

We are a group of people of all ages, from teens to seniors, interested in all kinds of high end equipments: vinyl, RTRs, digital, tubes, SS, including some really interesting DIY proyects going from speakers to digital room correction. Meetings are held randomly during the year at our homes, please check with us when and where we are meeting next. Besides, once a year we all gather toghether for our event called Molingordo (check our web page www.matrixhifi.com for details) where during 4 days we play non stop music on 6 different dedicated rooms trying out all kinds of high end and DIY gear brought by ourselves, including an A/V room. This is a family reunion, with daylight activities for the kids and family, night dancing with our own DJ Juanito, live music played by the daring ones, and best of it all, loads of fun. Everybody's welcome, including dealers and importers, no barriers of no kind, we are here to give or get advice from anyone whom shares the same passion for music and highend equipment. We are spread out all over Spain, so never mind where you are, check out who's the nearest member organizing the next meeting.

Thanks for looking
Brgds,

Believe it or not, we did exactly that this year and helped one of our members to come over all the way from south america to join us for the annual meeting held last may.

We are not shy to cooperate with our members that throughout the year actively participates to further develop some of our interests within acoustics, DIY designs, etc etc. We are not rich, but we are a bunch.

Have you checked our web site yet? have fun here:

Look for REUNIONES, click on MOLINGORDO III and surf around.

We are working on the chronicle for this year's meeting. Initially, we thought that each 18 monthes was a good time frame to consume between each meeting, we have since found out that 12 monthes is what our members would like to have in between. The next one is set so far for may 2007. However, we organize smaller events, from a visit to one member (or not, we don't care) to i.e. help adjust a new set up (be it speakers, EQ, DRC, TTs, whatever it is needed) to some more informal meetings like the one coming by the end of this month in Almeria, SSS (Sunny South Spain, ).

Keep in touch

Re: Blind test in Spain

Does anything like this happen in the L.A. area? I would very much be interested in attending?
