    See my facebook page. Just started yesterday. Would like to get a group started in the Columbus and surrounding area started. This is open to all targeting "mid-fi" equipment, all media and genres, mostly centered on vintage equipment from late 50's to early 80's (the good stuff). Hope to see people in the area join.
    Enjoy!

    I'm in Akron Ohio and wished I had a group of audio buddies that would roll to estate sales or just get together to talk shop. I'm 27 and no one my age cares like I do. I'm always trying to inspire those ones who don't know though.

    When I lived in Cleveland, OH we tried to to start up a group (Cleveland Regional Audio Club - CRAC) and it was really hard to get anyone out for it. When Big Steve left, it kind of really gutted what was left of the group. There were some great people around the area also.

    I also tried to start one in mid Michigan 14-15 yrs ago and it sputtered. The remnants started SMAC.

    People can keep trying, but you have to have willing souls.

    Im in Dublin and would enjoy meeting up somewhere and hearing a bunch of different gear. Other than my gear and one HiFi store, I have heard zero quality stereos in my entire life. Ive never even known a single person into stereos.

    God we used to post all the time in AK to actually get people to come. Most of our meets around Cleveland had between 5 -10 people max, even though 27 people said they would come.

    I am not trying to throw water on y'all at all, just be realistic and don't get discouraged at all.

    So true. I wish we had had more. Tho, the few I was able to make were awesome. And the people I met, honorable and enthusiastic. The barn meet in Kent, was fantastic.

    I f someone was to host I would definitely...try to make it. :)

    I wouldn't limit it to 'mid-fi.' Invite anyone and everyone interested in audio.

    Food.

    Swap tables.

    Relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

    If you have all that, it should work! :thumbsup:

    I'd personally love to help get the ball rolling for a way to get everyone willing to meet together. Find a place mutually agreed upon as most convenient location and get everyone together.

    Hardly anybody, let alone my age, are interested in this hobby, so getting together with other like minded individuals would be really great.
