I think you'll find that most of those topics are discussed on the
Linux audio developers mailing list since most of the people giving the
presentations at LAC are Linux audio developers.

Linux audio users come in a number of sizes and shapes. Some are
rank amateurs and some are accomplished professionals. Pretty much any
Linux audio related topic is acceptable here. And, yes, that does
include getting more "thump" out of your woofers if you happen to be
using Linux to run them.

Lots of larger than tiny bits of useful information show up here.
I've both provided and received some of them. I tend to check out a
topic and, if I'm not interested, those go in the dumper. If I'm
interested I'll check out the rest of the posts.

I'm personally pretty happy with what I'm getting from the list as
it is - and I've been on it for a few years ;-)
