I've started a new Facebook group called "Greater SF Bay Area Audiophiles". The purpose of this group is to provide a connection for local audiophiles to meet each other and to create gatherings. I love "DIY Audio" because it speaks to me the spirit of this hobby - which is always wanting better sound within one's personal means. That means learning from each other.
And that's the point of the group I've created. I would love for people to connect with each other, and to hear each others systems. There's always something new to learn. This hobby should never be about envy and lusting after gear we can't afford. It should always be about the love of music and learning how to reproduce it better.
I consider the "Greater SF Bay Area" to geographically extend from Monterrey to Sacramento. So I invite anyone within that area to join the group, post notices and hopefully extend social invitations. If you live outside of this area and are willing to travel to an audiophile social gathering, then by all means join. But this is really intended for local audiophiles to connect and meet up.
