Cleveland, OH

Anyone in the NE Ohio area that are still stalwart 2 channelers?
How about those of you who got rid of their stereo gear to go HT
only to regret it. Are you out there? COMMENTS
Well yesterday was a great get together, thanks Eric for the power conditioner and the wine, I hope to see others homes in time aswell as host more of you at my place.
It was greating meeting all, so once again....thanks Brian, Jim, Eric, Marty and Karl for everything! Cheers
Tpsonic and Brian: thanks for stopping by today and checking out some sounds on my little system. I really enjoyed meeting Brian and having the opportunity of welcoming him to our little community of audiophiles in the south central Cleveland area. Tipsonic, it's always a pleasure and special treat when you stop by and drive me crazy with all those little adjustments that just seem to make the analog rig sound its best. Although a lot of fun and fellowship was had, we definitely did not have enough time together today to really enjoy all the benefits of my system so when we can, lets get togheter and do it again. Thanks again, Herman
It has been almost two years since my wife and I began a relocation. At that point my gear went into storage and the music has been dead. Today we have moved into our new digs, they are not complete yet. Kitchen, bathroom, and the rest of the first floor is to be finished, but i have a dedicated room for the first time. It is not perfect, but after 2 years, I am chompin at the bit to get the rig out and running again.
Will be spending some time figuring out the best room configuration, as I now have a third floor "man cave" that will be and ht on one end and a 2 channel on the other.

I can't wait to sit and listen for a while. Rehabbing a crackhouse was a romantic idea, but has nearly killed me. I need to relax before the craziness that is the holiday season is going to bring.
Hford653,Thanks for having Brian and I over for a listening session.Sorry we had to cut things short.I'll try to make it over this afternoon ,so that we can finish tweaking the table with the new Huffman ICs.I was glad to read that I wasn't driving you overly crazy with all the adjustments.The system was really starting to shine.
Local AudioGon members:A few of us meet in small numbers to enjoy music and discuss the gear.Feel free to contact any of us and make arrangements to "meet & greet".
All are welcome.
Happy Holidays!
Can you put me on the mailing list? Euclid counts as part of NE Ohio, doesn't it?

A bit about me --I'm fairly new to the hobby. A few years ago I had hopes of putting together the ultimate HT/2ch combo. Don Better warned me otherwise, but i didn't listen. Needless to say, dreams shattered and tail between my legs, I'm now in the process of splitting it up. After a bit of research (and pleading for a reasonable budget from my wife), a Rogue Cronus is now on its way to power my DeVore Gibbons. Not sure how this set-up stacks up amongst the members, if I'm in the wrong league --just shoot me a note and I'll be glad to go back to the minors (tips on how to extract a bigger budget from the misses would also be appreciated).

Also, as for what I listen to, I'm a 37 year old Zep head who now can't get enough Coltrane & his protege's (Josh Redman, et al). The wife likes punk and I've been known to attend my share of operas. I'm sure may of you have the same tastes as I...
