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 monthly meeting on 26 September will be at Esoteric Audio, Gary Hjerpe's high-end-audio store that's been serving audiophiles in Phoenix for decades. Gary will be featuring the Aesthetix Atlas poweramp, of which Wes Phillips of Stereophile and Jerry Siegel of had some very nice things to say, and the Calipso Signature Edition tubed preamp. Of course all the rest of Gary's great equipment will be there!

Gary's showroom is located at 17442 N 28th St., Phoenix 85032. Meeting starts at 7PM, guests are welcome, and we'll have our usual snacks and raffle prizes. See you there.
