About Us The New Jersey Audio Society was established in the 1980s as a group interested in high performance audio playback. We encourage and welcome anyone interested in high performance playback systems from 78's to DXD/8xDSD to join and participate through active membership. Annual dues are currently $60. Membership includes a subscription to The Source, the publication of the New Jersey Audio Society, and invitations to attend meetings as well as to communicate through the submission of material or letters for publication in the newsletter and participate in our newsgroup site on the web.

We try to vary our meeting content among product demonstrations, music, instructional meetings (tweaks, room treatments, DIY, etc.) and just plain hanging out and listening to music on members’ systems. As examples, we have had demonstrations by manufacturers of high-end audio equipment, visits by recording engineers (including playback and mixing of master tapes), special meetings at dealers’ facilities, component and speaker builder meetings where some members who build speakers and electronic components have discussed and shown their designs, meetings dedicated to demonstrations of and discussions relating to vintage audio equipment, and demonstrations from professional musicians of their instruments and discussions of recordings of the great performers on those instruments. We also have annual summer picnic and year-end holiday party meetings.

Meeting Comments
The speakers showed potential, but seems crowded out by the rear wall. Good luck moving them!
Mark this meeting as the place Russ Prince announced his resignation and made public his pick for a successor. The membership was astounded by this. Then the meeting took place and we ate like royalty.
Rockports are huge but really nice speakers; probably need a little movement away from the rear wall to smooth out the bass response in-room, but that would require a return visit from the football team and didn't sound bad at all where they were. Headphone amp and AK100 also very good-sounding, liked them a lot; just not the same as listening to speakers, though. the AK100 is a nice idea and sonically impressive, but is probably designed for younger users whose eyes are better (the display is a little small and hard for me to read).
The Rockports are very impressive. I think they would benefit from more attention to positioning. Also, I noticed the balance skewed to the left channel a bit.
