The following is a press release issued by Burning Amp Festival.
San Francisco, CA | October 18, 12017 — Burning Amp Festival 2017 is coming to the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco on Sunday, November 12th from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 PM. New This Year: BAF’s hours have been extended due to the increased interest and popularity of DIY audio amongst music-loving enthusiasts of all ages.
Held in the fall since 2007, BAF has grown into a premier international event for do-it-yourself audio enthusiasts and professionals. DIY audio is the original maker movement dating back to the 1940’s and 1950’s when Hi-Fi was in its infancy, and a lot of great-sounding equipment was assembled at home by enthusiastic amateurs.
BAF celebrates audio technology both new and old, tube and solid state, analog and digital. The festival has been held in the fall since October of 2007. Come listen to hand-built audio amplifiers, speakers, and more. Bring your own gear: DIY amps, speakers, turntables, DACs, servers, etc. Share ideas and learn to design and build your own equipment.
By way of encouraging people to bring their own projects for show or demonstration, there will be free admission to anyone bringing a DIY project.
There will be displays, demos, auction and raffles items and freebies, plus well-attended lectures by prominent figures in audio engineering design like Nelson Pass, Siegfried Linkwitz, Damian Martin and Wayne Colburn. (Descriptions of their talks are in the Addendum, below.)
And, there are numerous DIY giveaways: Nelson Pass is, as always, generously contributing a big batch of Amp Camp amp circuit boards, parts and loudspeaker drivers.
