San Diego Audiophile group?

I would love to find an audiophile group in San Diego, or north coast San Diego.  Is there a group out there??  I enjoy learning all about the hobby, listening, studying hardware and setups, and finding new albums that sound great on a good system.




Yes, I agree - it was wonderful to meet some fellow enthusiasts and the system and music were fantastic (as was the food!).  I also learned new things that day, which is always nice.



Fantastic meetup of comradeship, music, food , spirits. A great host w wonderful sounding system imo.> 12 attended….


I’m in North County, Bonsall, and have met with Carlsbad2 (Jerry) several times. Good guy and good system. I’ve also met Peter of PBN several times and he’s one of the good guys in audio. Sorry im going to be out of town for the Audio Guild meeting with Peter and Steve!


If there’s a meet up let me know. I can be found on that professional website as Ty Krebs of Nitto.

I am a member of a Audio Enthusiasts Group in the UK.

My first introduction was when meeting a few Group Members at a Forums annual event approx' 150 miles from my home. 

My demo's of brought along equipment started a dialogue with unknown individuals, of which two individuals making inquiries were discovered to be living  local to my home.

I was then also informed there was a functioning Audio Group and I would be welcomed to the pop in to a get together.

My first visit was back in 2016 and I have not looked back. I now have meeting venues as my home, or between 18 - 50 miles away.

The introduction to a new range of systems and also being privy to how some systems have evolved has been a great experience.  The group has also gathered the attention of some who sell equipment, and there is periodically Brand New Devices put forward to be assessed by the Group. When achievable, such a device will be given an extended period of use, before being assessed from a comparisons in a Bake Off with similar devices.

There is also the in group, a want to create a publicised day of invite to a local venue, where audio systems will be present to the wider audience who attend.

The jovial get togethers and learning to be had is priceless, I thoroughly recommend achieving a meeting and continuing producing dates to get together.

Jerry - I look forward to meeting you.  I hike in the Sierra all summer.  I have hiked the JMT several times, and I know many of the areas along the 395 pretty well.  Between musical systems and hiking, we will have plenty to chat about.

I look forward to meeting many of you and seeing your systems and finding some new ideas, music, etc.


if you guys want to store a list of names and contact info in a google spreadsheet, protected if necessary, we could do that too

OK, now we are showing off :) 100 miles, that's hard core. I can't count that far in pancakes :)

Shoot, I've been avoiding joining that place for many years.  Now mostly because I would like to be on permanent vacation.  Live in Escondido, and would be interested in connecting with others who share the bug!  I'll try to reach out to you Jerry.

good idea Jerry. i sent you a connect request. 

I can be found James B Davis Quantum Computing…. and other interesting gigs…

OK.  this is getting hard.  Mostly because Audiogon doesn't allow us to share contact info.  I can be found on that place where professionals post their job history and experience.  Jerry Stephenson Engineering Manager. Southern California.

I have managed to find HikerNeil.

BTW, I'm a hiker too.  Planning a 100+ mile trip for this summer.


Well this is a good thread… Jan Montana a writer for PS Audio Copper Magazine coordinator of the San Diego Audio Guild can get you connected. There is an upcoming meeting 5/4 w Peter of PBN audio attending and Steve M of SMC also invited. I live part of the year in Carlsbad, so a North County group is of some interest to me as well. Not sure how we get around the silly restrictions… but do try…

Best in music to all


I’d be interested as well, I’m in Rancho Penasquitos so close to “Carlsbad”. 

I am interested in joining an audiophile/music group in San Diego. I live in Coronado.
