    There doesn't seem to be a large West Coast presence here on Audiokarma, so maybe we can start to get to know each other. It seems to help others trade and collect.

    I am available In Los Angeles to help you out if you need some love over here...:)

    Please just put tour name, city and general audio interests... Like this...

    With my screen name, SFV, South of the Blvd. Tubes, modern and vintage SS, and more.

    There is an AK member I have been trading messages who resides in the Inland Empire. From what he is telling me, he has one of the best monster receiver collections. I'll let him answer the roll call.

    No tubes, too many speakers.

    I love all things audio but am deftly afraid to mess with my electronic circuits for fear of killing some unobtainable part.

    North Tustin area. I have been looking for a local group and the Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society (largest audio club in world with >2,100 members) events are usually further into LA than I want to travel and always at some dealer.

    My living room is set up as a home entertainment room with modified JBL L200/300s as L,C,R and JBL 10" with 2425 compression drivers on butt cheeks for rear and front presence. To add bottom, a JBL W15GTi/Crown PSA-2XH and a Sunfire Signiture sub fill in the gap and can shake the house. Yamaha RX-Z9 receiver (170 WPC) and SACD/DVD-Audio provide sounds.

    Just finished wiring the room (16' x 26' x 7.5'-15' sloped ceiling) up to demo three pair of speakers with level matching and A/B/X comparison.

    My main system in the media room is fairly modern but love vintage HiFi restoration projects.
    I aquired some vintage pieces for restoration and would like to start building a 2 channel system:
    Speakers: EV Sentry V - Acoustic Research AR-4x
    Pre amp: HK Citation 11
    TTs: Yamaha YP-D4 and YP-B2 - Philips GA 212 and 312
    The plan is to restore them, try them out, and sell them on if I don't like them. That's how it's done right?
    Just fished a complete resto on a Kenwood KR-9600 for a friend of mine.

    I also work on guitar and bass amps and pro audio gear, both tube and SS.

    Pop went to SC back in the '50s. Kappa Alpha Psi - not bad for a white kid from L.A. We grew up near the campus while he was a minister at USC Methodist.
