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
Leon has a great system and on this last occasion I had the experience of a "suspension of disbelieve" that we had a female vocalist seeming to be actually present in the room.
Thanks for Leon for hosting and Backert Labs for showing us their fine product. The new kitchen is very nice too.
Enjoyed this very interesting meeting. The system had lots of depth and a big presentation. I think the electronic crossover settings were not completely set properly to the subs. Or the sub amp was not powerful enough. Bass was plentiful but did not blend with the main towers. But somehow the speaker was still musical. The Backert Labs pre amp seemed well built and a good value.
As always it was a pleasure to visit the Paboojian's. Leon always has an interesting array of equipment and the sound never suffers. This time we were treated to a most interesting tube preamp, the Backert Labs Rhythm 1.1. Presenting was Backert Labs President, Andy Tebbe. Andy fielded questions and shared experiences. I thank Andy for coming out and hope we hear more form Backert Labs in future. A very enjoyable audio afternoon.
Same deal as the month before.
Great meeting. The Pipe Dreams were delicious! The Backert Labs preamp made a an excellent impression, as well.
good listening and conviviality...worth the drive into New Jersey's far north despite the winter weather!
