Bay Area audio clubs, let's compile a list.

There is a DIY speaker/tube club that meets monthly at the Randall museum in Golden Gate Park.

http://www.geocities.com/sfvacuumtubeclub/

Membership is free.

The exploratorium does not have a club but has had some classes/lectures regarding loaded horns. I am freinds with some of their engineers and would be happy to post any events upcoming, hopefully get them to post as well.

Bay Area Audiophile Society (BAAS)
« Reply #2 on: 8 Sep 2006, 10:18 pm »
The Bay Area Audiophile Society, founded by Dennis Davis and Wilson Lem, is well over 10 years old. BAAS membership is a whole $15, and lasts for years and years without needing to be renewed. We have well over 125 people on our e-mail list, although the majority rarely attend events.

We have three upcoming demos open to members only:
Sept. 30  Demo of my reference system plus demo of Acoustic Systems resonators in East Oakland
Oct. 7  Demo of Zu speakers and cabling at my place
[Note: the main purpose of the reference system demo is to give people a reference from which to evaluate the Zu Audio speakers and cabling that will replace my own on October 7]
Oct. 28  Tour of NHT facilities

Also: Weekend of October 21 A number of BAAS members will attend the Rocky Mountain Audiofest

Some of these events have attendee limits and require pre-registration due to space concerns.

All BAAS events are organized by volunteers.

There is a DIY audio group (mostly loudspeaker but also DIY electronics, mods and so on) that meets a couple times a year in Roseville (near Sacramento).

The web site for the group can be found at:
http://ncdiyaudio.com/

The most recent meeting was in February and the next one will be around late September or early October. Everyone is welcome to attend or bring a project to display / show / play, etc.

Hi, All. Looks like this thread is a few years old. Wondering if the information is still current, and/or if any new clubs have sprung up. I'm an audio lover, based in the Mission in SF. Would love to share gear + music inspiration with others.
