Where are the New England Audiophiles

Happy New Year all.
It surprising to me the lack of audio happenings in New England, you would think different stores would host gathering from time to time as a way to introduce new equipment and boost sales. Even an hour to showcase a new lp, turntable, cartridge and speakers would be awesome.

Huddled 'round our Class A and tube amplifiers trying to keep warm.

I just took my integrated Setton amplifier out and replaced it with a Primaluna pre and two Emotiva monoblock amps.  I wanted to compare the sound anyway.  The room temp went up 1 degree.  It's not a big room.  But hey, in southern New England every little bit helps, right?  Wait, the outside temps are in the twenties now and not the single digits.  Hmmm.  I may have to rethink prolonging this test...

Fidelis had an event in the fall but that was the last I've heard of.

Although I haven't been able to make it, Blink High End has had at least a handful of events in the last several years to feature products lines including Devialet and Raidho.

I did notice that there is a new Frankenfest in March.  "http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/winter-new-england-frankenfest-saturday-march-10-2018-sutton-ma.795147/"  Hope that helps.

There are couple more audio related events coming up in CT.  Check out the CT Audio Society homepage, "http://cas.ctaudio.org/"  Stay warm.

I did attend the Frankenfest this past Saturday there seemed to be a good number coming and going.
It's too bad there was not more equipment being demoed. Maybe next time some of the audio shops could be asked to participate and do seminars.
There was plenty of vinyl available at very reasonable prices.
Hopefully this will continue.
Hope others who attended offer their prospective.

Someday I'll make it to Frankenfest, it seems I always have something else interfering.  :roll:

I also made it Sutton this Saturday. Jim says there was 90 of us which is a decent turnout. Next one is already planned for October. I've been to many Frankenfests and they're always a great time to get out and see some gear and do some shop talk with like minded fellows.
