Does anyone here live in or near San Antonio? I am looking to make some new audiophile friends. Im pretty in to this hobby, but it seems if I talk about it to anyone, their eye gloss over with boredom.

Sadly it is a lonely hobby. I built my speaker from scratch, cables, modified the **** out of my preamp/amp and get excited but have no one to share it with. People come over and wonder why I don't have a tv. Then I play them some music and you see their eyes open up. I still may get one, but not anytime soon.

We've had three audiophile get-togethers with live music at my house over the past 18 months. The last two with live recording for everyone's amusement. Lots of fun. Don't know when the next one is, but I usually post them here. Y'all are always welcome!
