The following is a press release issued by Burning Amp.

San Francisco, CA | October 30, 2019 – Nov. 9, 2019 — The 12th annual Burning Amp Festival  2019 will be held Saturday, November 9 (Workshop Day), and Sunday, November 10 (Main Event) at the Firehouse and Building C of the historic Fort Mason Center on the San Francisco waterfront.


Burning Amp is a yearly participatory event for Do-It-Yourself (DIY) audiophiles to show off their projects, learn, network, and share their passion for experimenting with DIY audio gear. Founded in 2007, Burning Amp is an all-volunteer, non-profit audio happening attended by enthusiasts worldwide.


The Saturday Workshop Day (pre-registration required) will include an Amplifier Build Workshop and a Measurement Workshop.  In the Amplifier Build Workshop participants will assemble a preamp/headphone amp, an all-new design from long term patron Nelson Pass.  The Measurement Workshop, led by Bob Cordell and Demian Martin, will explore measurements of both amplifiers and loudspeakers.


The Sunday main event offers amateur DIY audio projects on display and for audition. Burning Amp’s keynote speakers are always standing-room-only (subject to Fire Dept. regulations) events. This year’s speakers are: Sean Casey, founder of Zu Audio, and Nelson Pass, audio industry legend and DIY icon.


Sunday morning’s Shorter Takes session has three amplifier designers presenting, and is also the day Burning Amp participants display and audition their DIY projects.


Hours are: Saturday by Pre-Registration only; Sunday 9 a.m. to 8 PM.  A catered Indian buffet lunch will be available on Sunday.  Coffee and snacks will be provided both days. Admission is $30, and $20 for those bringing their own DIY audio projects.


All are encouraged to attend and to become part of our DIY community.  Bring your project, whether a breadboard prototype or a completed example of audio art.
