Phoenix, AZ

The Arizona Audio Video Club began life as the Arizona Audiophile Society in 1985. The name was changed a few years back to more accurately reflect the varied interests of the members. The club meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month, at various locations in the greater Phoenix area. We occasionally schedule special interest meetings, with topics such as music listening, equipment evaluations, tech workshops, etc. Members receive monthly newsletters, either as hard copies or by e-mail. Members also enjoy discounts on purchases at several of the local audio and HT specialty stores. For more information, check out our website at
Our January club meeting will be at 7 PM at the Airport Hilton Hotel on the 25th. Bill Cassaday will be demonstrating his Kokopelli 3Ti omnipolar-reflecting loudspeakers, which he designed and builds. This meeting is open to all who would like to attend. Non AAVC members please contact me for more info.
See you there!
