Lol, routing number would be nice too! I wondered if it might be inappropriate. I'll start though; I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and if anyone wants to hear my modest, but nice sounding system, they are more than welcome to hang out, have a beer and burger and a listen! Or maybe I could start a facebook account and accumulate thousands of friends I've never actually met ;-)

I think there are Who R U and Where R U threads that cover this ground as well, you might check them out. Elizabeth, you should add local audio clubs to the list, as those are a good way to meet others sharing our affliction.
Me, I'm not paranoid, I'm in Glen Ridge, NJ. The salt water crocs and pythons I keep roaming around my house as pets are effective deterrents to unwanted guests.
RcPrince, thanks for making me smile!
77 Jovian, are you going to the upcoming show in Denver?
Mofimadness, lol, Narnia, nice one brutha!!
Elizabeth, I understand where you are coming from, too bad though as you seem to be quite knowledgeable and I bet your system sounds great and may even sound better in my home ;-)
Anyways, happy Friday to everyone on Audiogon!
I'm in Raleigh now. Used to be in Madison WI, Minneapolis, Columbia SC, Albany NY, NYC. Jumped from town to town finding myself jobs, contracts, making descent living, but with struggle.
Having no property giving me a mobile possibility to load rental truck with my stuff and get movin to the place that has a job for me and I tend to keep it this way. The mind set of being flexible and always having plan B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P... will always prevent me from getting settled anywhere and having property as my personal complex. It was also beneficial to my recent divorce that was easy and uncontested:) So technically I'm a bum but with ability to support myself economically.
Having lived in Raleigh-Durham, I realize that this area would be very friendly to Mr&Mrs LeaveMeAlone (just like Liz) but not to me. I'm an alien in these Towns of Social Deficit. Couldn't even find anyone to celebrate my favorite US holiday April 20th(A birthday of Mary Johanna)! Despite that, there are positive things as well such as nice landscapes, woods, interesting landmarks, nice working environment and constant demographic development that could change things within a period of time.
There's Moon Audio dealer in Cary that is very friendly and gives equipment for home tests with no obligation to purchase. I still didn't take advantage of his hospitality to borrow the new Grace M903 balanced DAC/preamp/headphone amp, but as soon as I borrow one, I'll probably post a review.
My sound system is nice and powerful with fancy analogue playback but overall is cheap. Have close to 2000 vinyls, few hundreds of CDs, but most of the digital collection is on hard drive. I maintain it completely DIY so is my 1999 Volvo wagon had never seen a professional shop thanks to Matthew's Volvo Site. Doing DIY audio, automobile, boat and home cooking saves me lots of money and gives me an ability to have nice european vehicle, boat and sound system.
After all I'm social, hostpitality oriented, 420 friendly, able to trhow nice cook-out party with nice BBQ, steak, burger at the back yard... Welcome anybody who wishes to get in touch. Too bad that Agon disabled their internal communication system between members. They suck more and more day by day and anything new they implement is only getting worse and worse.
Acton, CA. On a dirt road between Rattlesnake Gulch & Deadmans Ridge. Where a lightening storm in the Mojave Desert will give us brown &/or blackout. Not a stoplight in town, 4 bars, 2 mexican restaraunts (2 of the bars are there) a truckstop, a Jack-In-The-Crack, a CrapDonnalds and cupla' gas stations. Lots of horses & dirt bikes. If anyone else has a Krell system in town it would be a surprise. And yes, all of the above is true. Great place to live, raise a kid & crank the piss out of the stereo. Oh yeah, and not a lot of paranoia either.
I live on Whidbey Island, Wa. I have not met another audio nutter in over forty years of living here. Been wondering if, and when, that day will come. Sharing this hobby is great, I have friends in Portland I share visits with, about once a year (they're expected soon). It can be lonely on an island!
Marakanatz, Mary J. Is available to anyone here in CO who has "chronic pain" and a doctors note stating such, we have the Rockies, great skiing / mountain biking / hiking etc, and lots of quality folks down to hang out and BBQ! Why aren't you here yet?!?
Mechans, thanks for the advice! I'll definitely check into that.
Jsd, I've actually partied there years ago. 300 other kids and I, 10,000 watts full blast for 10 hours, and no cops... ahhh, the good ole days.
Hey, Neil (Lneilb)! Looks like you already tried, years ago, something similar to what I was trying to accomplish here. Too bad you didn't have much luck. It was, and still is a good idea. It's funny, maybe actually sad, that many people will not put out the required effort, time and planning in order to get together and share common passions. I can see that there are alot of quality people here.
I like this guy, he could compete with my audio group for sick humor. Next time you travel this way come by and listen with us.
We are in DFW area, where earthquakes come but once a century and we just had ours.
Asheville, NC. Moderate system but a passion for good music. Believe in the law of diminishing returns concerning equipment costs. Am 64 and will probably work 10 more years due to divorce and ocassionally making a difference. Remarried to an age appropriate trophy wife who loves to listen to music. Love a good Napa cab. Season tickets to the Asheville symphony. Music now on a PC with a Halide DAC. Vinyl sounds great but complicated.
Everybody has a story.
Ok, so maybe the Harley, the jeep and the vette are cool, but that tahoe sucks, unless of course it has 26" inch spinny wheels!
Hey Albert, nice system! You seem to add alot to this site. I liked your "favorite music" thread. I'm going to get some Chris Whitley, and check out Trixie too! That guy is freaking amazing! I definately need to widen my music library and tastes. If I'm ever in the DFW area, I'll definitely try to get with you :-)
