Welcome to the Midwest Audio Club (MAC) web site and thanks for stopping by. Here you will find a wealth of information centered on DIY Audio and the various Midwest DIY events thrown throughout the year. For too long this information has been scattered across various forums, photobuckets and social media pages and all too often gets lost in the shuffle. MAC is the “one stop shop” for Midwest Audio DIYers of all stripes!! Come back often to see what’s going on and what’s on tap for the next get-together. Don’t be a stranger. Drop us a line if you have any comments or suggestions for making this site a more valuable resource for the DIY Audio community. That’s why we’re here. By the way, we’re not just here, but we’re on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube too. Connect with us!!

Miki and crew at Acry-Tech Coatings have been hooking us DIY guys up for years. At the upcoming DakotaDIY, we'll be giving away some DuraTex and Acoust-X samples. Get excited!!

Hey guys,

DakotaDIY 2017 is just a few weeks away - so wanted to post at least one more update.

Sponsors are really taking care of this year - make sure you head over to Facebook (if that is your thing - it is an awesome communication platform) and like our pages and the pages of the sponsors:

Here is an MP3 of the house track:

https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlHuPRQmBiX2rDaTi11CRPLgxMHQ

I will have more information on the various tracks - but the first three were chosen to challenge and expose critical areas of loudspeakers such as panel resonance, sibilance and ultimately resolution. The last three were chosen by BK, JP, and myself as a personal inclusion while also offering a challenge to reproduction.

JP is currently working on the upload platform, BK is working hard on a lot of the behind the scenes stuff, as well.

As I mentioned elsewhere, the front end will be as follows:

Windows 7 PC with no moving parts running into an Oppo BD-105d and out to the Theta Dreadnaught. The Oppo uses balanced outputs, but also has RCA style if we want to roll amps.

I look forward to seeing each of you very soon!
