The Audiophile Society will conduct this meeting anywhere you want to be.
Apologies for the short notice, but when one of the legends of high-end audio makes himself available for a meeting on a particular day, we grab it! That legend is Keith O. Johnson, one of the founding partners of Reference Recordings (with Tam Henderson and Keith’s wife, Marcia), one of the principals of Pacific Microsonics (with Michael Pflaumer and Mike Ritter), and the Director of Engineering for Spectral Audio. Keith has received eight GRAMMY nominations, winning for Best Surround Album in 2011. In 2008 he received the prestigious Silver Medal Award from the Audio Engineering Society. He has two Absolute Sound Golden Ear awards and three awards from the Academy Advancing High-Performance Audio. Not enough? He’s an excellent keyboard player and a competitive middle-distance runner. Oh, and he’s a super-nice guy who’s willing to share his precious time with us.
Keith Johnson has recorded over 140 albums for Reference Recordings, and who among us doesn’t have a few dozen or more in our collections? He knows analog recording inside and out, building from scratch or modifying equipment for ultimate performance, from microphones to preamps to tape recorders. Equally at home in the digital world, he was among the early pioneers investigating – and doing something about – the problems of digital recording. The first “high-def” digital audio files most of us bought were Keith’s recordings for Reference. We feel very privileged to be able to speak to “Professor” Johnson this coming Saturday. (And a shout out to Arnie Balgalvis, who put this meeting together.)
Note that Keith Johnson is one of the LA & OC Society’s Founders Award winners!
