Tireguy: If you come to Oregon, I could set you up with a SWF 18-35 and great jazz! In the meantime, I have a very good freind in Schenectady that is a die hard audiophile. I don;t think he is your type though.
Calloway: With Duke nearby, you are ALL set! :)
Lak: How far are you away from Canton?
Im from a small town called Perry in Western NY.40 min. drive south of Rochester and 60 min. drive east of Buffalo.Population 6000.We are surrounded by dairy farms and woods.Tim,we are about 4 hours apart.Glad to hear you had a great time in White Plains.Mark O'Brien (Rogue Audio) tentatively is scheduled to be at "Toys" the end of Jan.I may make the trip.Hope to see you there! :^)
Hey Tim- guess I'm the first Canadian guy to respond tonight- Toronto, Ontario. Been reading lots of your posts over the last year- great to see your passion for audio! I'm kinda lucky- from the balcony of the new Condo, I can see my high-end audio store!! (very bad $$...). Also- luckily I live just a few miles from my buddy Israel Blume- Coincident Speaker Tech. Have 2 sets of very cool modded monoblock tube amps from him, and a pair of Super Eclipse speakers on the way! Lastly- I do also have an audiophile buddy with these awesome monstrous Infinity Beta speakers a 5-minute drive in the other direction. So can't complain- and hey, Audiogon is only a couple of clicks away anytime! Happy holidays everyone.
Hello from Seattle, WA, my home since 1964 after relocating from the Maryland/Washington DC suburbs. Like Craig (Garfish), we've been having a wet winter, and I'm getting laid off from work on Friday, but at least I've managed to upgrade my sound system this past year and will have something to provide a pleasing distraction until spring arrives.

Greetings from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I live 4 miles from the base of Jackson Hole Ski Resort (aka Teton Village), the best extreme terrain in America. My closest audiophile friends are in Boise, Idaho, 6.5 hours away. I'm guessing there are others here, but none that I have met. We have one great hi fi shop (B&W, Wilson Audio, Thiel, Krell, Meridian, Bryston, etc.) and a lot of wealth here.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
If you look at a map of California and find Yosemite National Park, I'm at the ten o'clock position in the town of Twain Harte in the beautiful Sierra Mountains. Audiophiles? We don't have no stinking audiophiles. Actually, there are 3 audiophiles that I'm aware of within an hours drive. The closest highend audio shop is over two hours away (unless you consider Radio Shack a high end store). So taking home gear to demo is impossible, and shoping around usually entails a 3-hour trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. SWF 18-35 are available, but is having a full set of teeth a criteria?
I'm on the Canadian border with Quebec in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The town is Holland with no Post Office, one paved road with little or no traffic noise to contend with! Quiet and beautiful! And NO audiophile neighbors that I know of. I use AudiogoN as my high-end "store" and these forums for valuable info. Happy holidays to one and all.
Greetings from Albuquerque. It's just about in the middle of nowhere. So you're not from Akron??? Whatsup with that? Don't you have to live in Akron and work for Goodyear (or some other tire company) if you're gonna be Tireguy. How quickly my illusions do get shattered on this website. I guess I'm not the only one...your lack of respondents to the "SWF 18-35 with separates" probably didn't help your illusions either. Good thread, Happy Holidays from audiopath.
Madison, Wisconsin here. There are many hi-end shops in the local area but it seems it was not till the net and dialogs like those on Audiogon did I realize where the buyers are located. I have used the Zip Code search on Audiogon and the Used Equipment by Location on Audioweb to buy items from local people, many of which have been long term audiophile contacts.
denver, colorado. lots of highend manufacturers nearby: avalon, boulder, jrdg, ps audio, ayre, green mountain, dunlavy, edge, among others. and lots of fellow travelers with whom i regularly and happily communicate. 'course it doesn't hurt either that my audio dealer is one of my very best friends. -kelly
Well if nothing else we are diverse! Glad to hear from so many. David I drive fast and I think I could make it out in 3 hours! as long as I don't run into the fuzz......again:( I was making great time down to white plains and then out of NO where a nice law enforcement officer had an oppertunity to introduce himself to me, we had a long chat and parted friends ;) But that is another story all together I had to beat him to death with his own shoes!
Just a stone's throw from Albany, if you have a very good, arm, but the mountains are in the way. South Shore of Montreal, P.Q. You should try to make it up here for the Montreal Jazz Festival. Your big Yankee dollar goes a long way up here. Keep Canada green, bring money.
Have a great holiday season.
