I'm up the road from you about 3 hours in Youngstown. I'd like to be involved. My son was just accepted to Ohio State, he starts there next fall, I'll be visiting fairly often at that time. Let me know the next steps.

I currently live about 30 miles south of Columbus. I am from canton Ohio and get up there from time to time. I started in the "high end" biz in 1984. Currently I am a general manager of a mass merchchant electronics retailer, and have a room dedicated to my system I would be interesred in an audio club.
Good to hear from you. Someone must be keeping those stores in business? In the days of home 'theatre in a box' and mp3's it is good to see retailers who can sell high end audio.
I enjoy listening to different systems,and checking out new music. Most of my collection would be considered 'classic rock' but I am very open minded about music, and also like some jazz and classical. I have a dedicated stereo room ( I believe you do as well), and prefer simple system design, two way speakers, lightwieght components, the less is more type approach. If you would like to check out my system let me know, I think it would be cool.I have seen your system and would like to hear it. I just wanted to let you know a little about me.
I would be interested in putting together a club.
Currently living in Columbus, Clintonville, a couple of miles up from OSU- off of High St.
Was bitten by the audiophile bug about a year ago and took the plunge with some pre-owned Cambridge Audio gear, added Kimber Kable interconnects, myrtlewood blocks, Era 5 speakers, and Shunyata Venons power cables and I'm not looking back ! Upgrade-itis has recently struck and am looking at different options as far as integrated amps/ separates, sources, etc.

I live in Pickerington, South East of Columbus just outside the 270 belt.
Very much interested in forming or joining an audio club
Drop me an Email - click my user name and follow the directions.
I am available for listening sessions most days noon to past midnight except for dinner time, 6-8pm.
If you don't mind my filthy cave man's man cave, just give me a warning the day before to coordinate...
Jeffatus,I live in Gallowy,Ohio and that is in the south west side of Columbus. If you want to get started ,we can listen to each others systems. That would be a fun start. I have two other audio enthusiasts that trade listening sesions at each others houses. As a matter of fact I am going to audiokarma this weekend in Novi Michigan. Let me know if you are up for getting together some time.
I am in Pickerington just East of the 270 loop. If you and Jeffatus are interested consider yourselves and your friends invited for a listen.
I use a modified Magnepan Tympani in a triamped setup with CD and Vinyl sources and probably have one of the ugliest setups you have ever seen.
I know two more folks nearby who may have an interest
Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
perhaps all interested should meet for coffee or a drink of choice and get to know one another. We should be careful about inviting all that respond. I do know of someone personally that lost a valuable system this way.My E-mail address is email@example.com and will answer any questions for security sake.
OK guys, I have started a list. It has first names,Audiogon handles,E-mail Addresses, and general areas of each person that wishes to be involved.Also you can give a brief description of your system if you like. Anyone wanting the list can E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also if you want to be added let me know.If you would like to be removed, let me know.
Ok, trying to keep things moving forward. It was funny, the other day I was thinking of why it would be cool to get together, aside from checking out some other peoples systems. I didn't come up with anything until a few days later, when I was wondering if my amp was the weak link in my system. Or if my cables were bright, etc. Well, an easy way is to A/B with another willing audiophiles stuff. I certainly don't have the time or the money to keep buying and selling equipment on Audiogon, but having a few people around that you could compare equipment to would be a huge help.
With that said, my equipment is still not broken in, but I am curious how some other systems sound. I may be able to kick the kids out over Memorial Day Weekend for a while and we could have a crack at it. All are welcome over my house in Powell. My system is insured and I have a big German Shepherd, along with lots of guns, so I am not too concerned about someone stealing my stuff. I may be the best place to start because of this. Send me an email if interested (email@example.com). I will start an email string and we can plan from there.
This Saturday evening 6/2/12 I am planning to have an open house for listening. There is also a possibility for movie watching if there is any interest. Oron I do believe you need to get out and join the guys! Jeff of course you are invited. Vassilis hows the shelving coming along? All others on the Central Ohio Audio Group come on out!
Greetings fellow Buckeyes! I've been visiting this original link for years since the first entries were posted and just by sheer luck, decided to check the thread yesterday and was shocked to see there are actually others in my general area who have posted (and admitted publicly to this "hobby").
If there are gatherings, meetings, or discussion in the future, I would like to join. By the way, Jeffatus and I share a common zip code, go figure!
