Chicago, Illinois

Wow, no audiophiles clubs in this beautiful city????
Old Shaggy Dog here in Chi Town looking for anyone who
would like to compare and share our systems. I make
no judgements and am not hard to please. Show off your
discoveries to us. Just post me.
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.
Okay, Dave rosenblum. Nice to meet you. Don't live
very far from you. Own Avantgarde Duo speakers with
SET tube amps. Joyful sound but decor hogs. Demand
your attention. If music is your thing, let the hogs
prevail, anyway. You are welcome to audition. Meet
you first for coffee? Me.
Yeah, coffee sometime next week would be great. Not clear on how we communicate private details through Agon.


PS: You can see my system posted here. Not close to your setup yet.
Respecting the AudiogoN concerns to protect all, I wish
to propose that we meet for discussions at a convenient
coffee house. Please suggest a place in Andersonville.
Evening hours. Contact me at
ok, how about the Starbucks at 5300 N. Clark. It's easy to find and Kopi never has enough seating. Maybe we can do a future meeting at Simons.
What do you (anybody reading this) think about publicizing outside of Audiogon to get a metro Chicago thing going? Premature?
Follow up to Dave-rosenblum. Starbucks in Anderson-
ville good. Monday at 7:00PM?, 8:00PM?,. How's
Wed. same times? I'll wear a yellow rose in my hair.
I think it is ok to contact me personally at my email
address as given, Dave. Say date and time. BGordon829.
Let's say Monday at 7:00pm. I'm posting here so other readers can show up if they like. I'll be the one with the current copy of TAS.
I did post something on stereophile's forum (under rants) but didn't give any details.
Look for an old man with a Lexus baseball cap. Monday.
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

If there is a better way of spreading the word to the Chicago area let me know!
I tried joining a meetup club located in elgin but so far not looking good. I suggested to a local stereo shop they sponsor a club 1 night a week to possibly improve interest but no luck there either, I think all the interest is going towards HT these days.
