I'm interested in starting something in Chicago also. I'd been thinking about using meet-up to do this. This forum is probably a better place to start.
I live in Andersonville and have just upgraded my amp and cdp to high quality this year. Everybody can bombard me with their speaker opinions since that's coming next.
Hey guys I haven't seen much activity on this forum in the past year or so... So I thought I would invite you to join us in Dayton Ohio for a listening session we are having
We will have reps from Magico and Boulder for all of your technical questions and to learn about why they build there products the way they do!
Also we will have refreshments and food so that you can enjoy a nice cool (We will keep the A/C blasted!) and comfortable environment. For a list of products please check out the Cincinnati audiophile club.
We usually have great turn out so please don't be afraid to come! The drive is mostly highway and fairly simple to get too. If you would like to come please RSVP by calling 937.293.6200 or email me at Sales@hansonav.com
If there is a better way of spreading the word to the Chicago area let me know!
Hey, Eric here I’m in Algonquin and have a product a tube preamplifier that I want to get out there and let you hear. Here’s the webpage: www.gudebrodaudio.com
Don’t know if anyone is interested but I can bring it to you or we can workout meeting at my place. Also a good club in Chicago is Chicago Audio society going to try and setup a couple of different nights with them also.
Pardon my jumping in. I started the Chicago Audio Society in '94 and ran it for close to ten years until I started my own home based audio dealership. I closed the business a year ago and joined MD soon afterward. I'm a kid in a candy store every day managing the showroom (two sound rooms so far) among other duties including being the analog setup geek doing all the ultimate cartridge alignments by computer.
So here's a friendly invite to those interested to come for a visit and check us out. Most of our business is obviously online and phone orders, but the sound rooms are something new and exciting. There's gear in them you won't necessarily see on our website or in our catalog. And for you serious coffee drinkers I hear good things from a colleague about The Coffee Studio over on Clark St.
Here is a heads up for Music Direct and Brian’s setup skill with the computer aid.
Have been a longtime customer of MD and bought a Kuzma TT from Brian at Axpona 2016. The setup is still great.
For the New Year; With the help of-another A’goner, We’ve setup a Chicago Area Garage Sale For January 27th. For Chicago guys to help sell old gear and maybe find gear that they have lusted for. Come and check us out at Ryan’s pub in Forrest Park on the 27th.
The best to All and have a great and safe New Year.
I too would like to meet other Chicago audiophiles. My system is posted and if you contact me via PM which you can do on A’Gon; I will respond and trade email and phone # privately.
Was born and raised northside Chicagoan but now live 6900 S LSD.
Mature hippy, that plays 60s, 70s, 80s rock and various other stuff.
Would certainly like to hear other Systems ( tube, horn, ESL ) that are setup and played/demo better than our local dealers do.
Yes, and some new music.
Reach Out and PM me. I will respond.
Happy New Year to Chicago
Best to All
