Virtual Chicago Audio Society Meeting
NOVEMBER MEETING-Sunday, November 8th,
1:00PM PM Central Time
Topic: Peter Ledermann of Soundsmith answers your questions about phono cartridges and analog audio.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic making it impossible to meet in person this year, we thought we could do another virtual meeting like our June meeting with Haniwa Audio. We are delighted to meet with Peter Ledermann, President, Chief Engineer, and Founder of Soundsmith.
Our thanks to John Toney, Director of International Sales and Marketing, for coordinating this meeting with us.
