2019 Burning Amp Festival Returns to San Fran November 9


If you've ever been interested in building your own audio gear or just showing off the components you've already cobbled together in the workshop out back, and if you can make it to the Bay Area in November, you may be interested in attending the twelfth annual Burning Amp Festival. Of particular interest is the Saturday Workshop Day, which does require pre-registration, but which will include both an Amplifier Build Workshop and a Measurement Workshop.

Read on for full details directly from the press release:

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.
