The Space Center - (2006 - 2009)
The first serious location for Audio Resurgence was ‘The Space Center’ in De Pere, WI. A huge 4800 s.f building with the main listening room situated in a large space, 48′ wide X 28′ deep X 28′ high. Cathedral ceilings and lots of glass earned this room the nickname of ‘The Space Center’.
Four different listening rooms were setup at this location, with lots of gear coming in and out on a regular basis! The Space Center was used frequently for meetings of the NEWAS – North Eastern Wisconsin Audio Society, and lots of good times were had.
Notable events at The Space Center included a January visit by Robert and Steve from Ridge Street Audio Designs who brought along their Sason Speaker for a 2-day club meeting.

- Cary Audio V12R Monoblocks

The Great Horns of Atlantium - (2009-2012)
A custom built space located in the basement of the historic Green Lake Bank (Circa 1901). This was a good listening room and served us well for a couple years. It didn’t have quite the appeal and versatility as the old ‘Space Center’ but good times were had.
The name came from Audio Doc who christened the speaker system ‘The Great Horns of Atlantium’ (a story for another time maybe!)
Notable gear that spent time here:
- Custom KLM Horn system with subwoofers
- Lyngdorf TDi2200
