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.

thanks.

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 bgordon829@sbcglobal.net.
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 Sales@hansonav.com

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.
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.

Music Direct
Hey Chicago,

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.
Hey Guys,

 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
