I joined the forums at NEWAS and seem to have found a decent group of Wisco audiophiles there- I think that i will probably join the Chicago Audio Society and be set from there... I think the size of the city really matters as audiophiles seem fairly few and far between these days. You should join NEWAS too...
Heya guys- I'd still be open to seeing if enough other folks would be interested... Until then, I've been working on the weekends at a shop in Wauwatosa that sells sine really nice gear. On the road for work this week- but will be there most Saturdays to chat audio if you feel like stopping by. Shop is Ultra Fidelis- www.ultrafi.com
Maybe I'll see ya there...
... and then there were three...!
Plresults - thanks for your note.
I'm very familiar with Ultra Fidelis as I've purchased various items throughout these many years. Maybe we might meet and determine if, and how, we want to proceed. Chris, I'll plan on stopping by this weekend and say hello.
And now four, it seems. The club mentioned in the stream above seems a bit inactive and a long distance from Milwaukee ie 2 hours drive. (However the fellow that wrote on their website the bit about using computers as music servers was quite interesting.) Seems like with 1.5 million in metro Milwaukee we can get something started closer to home :-)
Happy to get together once a month or so here in the area. I am a relatively new audiophile newbie, so I have lots to learn. I have two or three friends that might be interested, too -- but they like the A/V/TV stuff, whereas I am more focused on two channel stereo...
Another interested party here, in Burlington, WI. Add me to the list of Ultra Fidelis fans, Jon Spelt is a true ambassador of high quality audio, a dyed-in-the-wool music lover, and a genuinely nice guy to boot. His patient demeanor and deep knowledge of all things audio set him apart in many ways and I am very grateful that I met him during my nascent years in this hobby.
I have about a dozen friends who regularly get together for listening sessions.
Most have modest 2 channel setups, But a few have what you would call.
All out assault audio systems, 3,200 watt 4 way active. You know the type.
Including a few audio designers and builders.
Most can be found on sites like.
Super Best Audio Friends.
We have been looking for a larger venue 20 to 40 people to hold our get togethers at.
Milwaukee or suburbs for a bi-weekly meetup.
If you have some interest DM me and we'll swap emails to make contact.
In the mean time we just keep circulating amongst ourselves.
Keep it real.
I live in Madison, WI
