    Would like to know if there are any audio groups in the Rochester NY area. With the winters up here I would expect there would be plenty of time to talk about this hobby.
    Thanks Ed

    I'm in Canandaigua and always like to chat, though it seems the older I get the less time I'm able to spend on audio. I have a standing offer that anybody on AK can come over and play on the test bench.

    I'm in NYC but have in-laws in Pittsford, plus a house on Conesus. Please update this board if there is ever a get-together.

    I'm about 30mins south of Buffalo, and would consider a Meetup. Maybe an organized record shop hop?

    I am also in Rochester, and between Christmas and the beginning of April you can find me on my couch listening to my system. 12 weeks of looking out my window listening to music. If it wasn't for my system and all the music I would go insane, so my system and the music are very important to me. if there was something put together, I'd like to go too. So count me in.

    Former WRUR DJ, former manager @ the Record Archive, consultant to the Bop Shop et. al. Would like to see another gathering happen... Any musicians in this thread? I consider myself a connoisseur of the low end. Had some vintage speakers rebuilt by the Speaker Place before they vanished in the night.

    Didn't even know The Speaker Place was gone. I used to buy a lot of drivers there when I was building speakers.

    FYI:

    Forefront Audio just opened at a new spot in Brighton. 1472 Monroe Ave (just west of the Bop Shop).

    I just got an email from Lance detailing the move. Someone check it out and report back!!
