    Many of us start out the same way. Mine was my Uncle's Fisher 800B that he bought new back in 1962. My interest got sparked again when my brother gave me a beat up Marantz 2245 about 5 years ago.

    I haven't put much effort in searching for an audio club here in Indy, but hopefully one will pop up. Organizing and hosting one is a lot of work - the RCA Club in San Antonio took a lot of effort on the part of quite a few people to keep it going. We would hold the club meetings in a local A/V store, plus folks would host smaller events at their homes.

    Yes I would agree. I can't wait to get the Carver PM 350 I just got, all hooked up and ready to go. It's 30 years old but will still have my speakers sounding amazing

    They had deals on some items. Had a few nice vintage McIntosh amps for $800+. Some turntables were high but they were rare so those prices were justified. They had a nice set of Carver Amazing Speakers for $1,500. And if you have a tube amp, they have a wide range of tubes to buy as well.

    Google hasnt changed us yet, but Getchell Amplifier Co is my shop :) feel free to check out Getchell Amplifiers on Facebook too. Peddling one's own business on here is frowned upon so I try not to self promote :) I'm a hobbyist as well as a part of this community...of you ever need help with anything feel free to message me!

    Thanks for the help a couple of weeks ago. I was the guy that came in looking for a Power Amp that did over 100 wpc. Learned a lot the brief time I was there with you at the shop

    I'd be more than willing to host such an event at our shop! :) As it is, a small local group of audiophiles and vintage audio collectors get together in the brownsburg area every month or so for show and tell and listening to music and different systems, it's a blast!

    That's exactly what I was hoping to find. Just a good group of folks that are passionate about audio and like to share music and audio gear that they find interesting. Is this event that is open to new attendees?

    There are lots of audiophiles in central Indy and some of us get together to check out each others gear and such. I don't know of any audio "clubs" in the area, but we try to have audio parties every now and then. Send me a PM if you wish to discuss. BTW...Getchell Amplifiers rocks!

    The "events" are more informal/casual fun meets, rather loosely organized...this IS all about fun, right? I know sometimes people are a little leery of meeting new people in their own home, our shop is a great place to meet up and socialize first though.

    I might be interested in attending one sometime if they are open to new people.

    Music/audio lovers are always welcome at our meetings.

    i am in fishers and would love to hear some nice systems. ovation audio was at one time a great dealer but they are under new owners and regrouping i hear. i think indy is a bit slow for this stuff imo.

    About the only storefronts around Indy that I am aware of (besides Ovation) is Audio Solutions in Broad Ripple and Getchell Amplifiers in Brownsburg. The former is an excellent place to see/hear very high-end new gear and they also have a small amount of trade-ins. The later has only vintage audio and guitar amps and the prices are more affordable. Send me a PM if you you want to come over to check out my collection sometime.
