  Audio Clubs
Each thread should be dedicated to one metropolitan area. If you would like to start a club or even just a small group of fanatics, start a new thread with the location as the first word in the title. Within threads about potential clubs, members could post their interest within the thread, allowing private emails. Please note that your participation in these clubs is completely independent of Audiogon. ie: if your tube amp blows up trying to run a club member's speakers, do not complain to Audiogon.

Exisiting club members or officers
Please feel free to post news, events, or more info about your club.
  Sacramento, California
We have a variety of systems built around both planar and coil speakers. We are helpful, friendly, and informal. Please feel free to email me if interested.

I'm here, in Midtown. I know of no-one using Magnepan. As for dipoles, we have Martin Logan, Apogee, and Soundlab. You should come down to my place to have a listen to an Apogee before you make up your mind.

My apologies to anyone who emailed me over the last several months. All of my past mail as vanished into the ether, due to an unwitting error on my part. I am anxious for people to hear the H2O on my Scinnies. After having introduced the new technology to the old, I find the marriage is made in heaven. Please write. My address records are lost.

All I can say, is Audio FX must have got a sweet deal on that old haunts where Keith Yates use to have a very high end store. The store is nearly invisible.

There was a store a couple blocks from the Paradyme on Fulton. I can't remember the name. I bought some Boston Acoustics there, and a turntable.

Hey Deltatrippers. Are you a river guide? There was a lot of interest when things started. To answer your question, there are just three of us who are still in communication.

The Ayon is a gorgeous amp, and reviewers like it a lot. What speakers are you going to use?

Drop me a private message if you care to discuss things over the phone.

01-04-11: Muralman1
Since you are building a system that includes perhaps large floor standing full range speakers, tube amps are not going to push them to loud levels. The review from Stereophile for the Salon 2 is very positive.

You might want to visit my house in Sacramento. I have amps and gear no-one would consider since of all my components only the transport and DAC can be found in brick stores.

01-05-11: Muralman1
Ral, I made that comment based on design and size. I hadn't seen the Salon's specifications. Perhaps Deltatrippers will find them perfectly suitable.

Deltatrippers, we moved in my Mother just last year. It is an adjustment. Things are going well here.

I did a set of murals at an Elk Grove Restaurant by the name of La Fuente. If I understand correctly, the front renovation of the strip mall may have caused their destruction.

Midtown Sacramento is but 20 minutes away from Elk Grove. I have something very special for you to listen to.

01-05-11: Muralman1
Ral, are you local? I need Deltatrippers to come here for a listen before he goes out buying amps for trial purposes. If you have the money, audio stores will allow you to, "Buy," amps with full agreement you are likely to return it.

01-05-11: Muralman1
Hey, Deltatrippers, please check out the La Fuentes restaurant at 99 and Elk Grove for me. I can't drive, and am wondering what might have happened to my murals. There were three big ones and a smaller one too.

I painted

a Central Mexico high peak that has a Christian church on top of a Native American temple.

A view of a hidden temple in the Yucatan Peninsula.

A Macaw parrot I imaged at the Sacramento Zoo.

A hacienda veranda looking out at out buildings and planted fields.

Banana trees growing out of big clay pots, and a stone arch.
