> Despite the number 8 being of the greatest significance in audio  
> history, the number 2 also looms big in our June meeting's speaker's  
> AES connection. Oliver Berliner has the distinction of being the  
> only AES member who resigned from our organization, not once but 2  
> times. He was also only the 2nd chairman in the history of the  
> infamous Hollywood Sapphire Group (forerunner of the AES and which  
> produced 2 AES presidents). He further was a co-founder of the West  
> Coast, now the Los Angeles, AES Section.

> It’s no secret that he’s the grandson of Emile Berliner whose  
> inventions of the microphone and the gramophone created today’s disc  
> recording industry as well as making voice and recorded-music  
> broadcasting possible; who was the co-founder of three of the  
> world's leading record labels, as well as creator of the trade-mark  
> showing the dog, Nipper, listening to “His Master's Voice” on a  
> gramophone, which reigned for half a century as the world’s most- 
> famous trade-mark.
>
> Oliver is the only one of Emile’s offspring to be in today’s  
> recording or the audio products industry. He’s the author of two  
> books and twenty-dozen speeches, lectures and published articles on  
> music, audio and video. He’s been quoted in Business Week and the  
> Wall St. Journal, and has had more Letters published in the Los  
> Angeles Times than has any other reader, living or dead. He’s been  
> interviewed on ABC, CBC, CBS, PBS, NBC, NDR, NPR.  He has two  
> patents; and produced video test equipment that led to the  
> introduction of similar products by Leader Instruments, Panasonic,  
> Electrohome and Hitachi...all based on his concept.
>
> Oliver comes here from Maryland to lay out some devastating  
> revelations about some of the greats of audio...info that he  
> promises will titillate and stimulate. He’ll show how his  
> grandfather proved that micro-currents pass from one contact to  
> another without their touching...the concept that made AT&T  the  
> world’s largest corporation and which he demonstrated to the Los  
> Angeles AES decades ago, using the (original Berliner) microphone,  
> then 100 years old, in the demo. He'll conclude with an astounding  
> yet little known comparison of Emile Berliner's analog disc to  
> Philips' digital...his “dissolve” of analog into digital. “Pure  
> magic.” Come see it.
