I give talks all over the country and it was a genuine pleasure to meet with such an informed, inquisitive and hospitable group. And lunch was great! What’s remarkable is the passion and enthusiasm that the members shared for music and the audio. Thank you for letting me have the opportunity to reach out and speak. I hope to do it again.

A large group of friendly, enthusiastic, appreciative and attentive audio enthusiasts made for a pleasurable and enjoyable presentation. My hosts could not have been more generous with their time and attention. Plus they know how to eat and drink well! I’d happily return if they ask me.

“Over the past two decades,  I have met with audiophile societies all over the world, including Germany, Hong Kong, and Singapore as well as nearly twenty  audio clubs here in the US from California to New York.

However, I was most impressed with the San Francisco group, now headed by Alón Sagee.  On two seperate occasions,  the first of which was profiled in Stereophile by Jason Serinus, my presentation was very well attended. The club has members that are above average in enthusiasm, knowledge, and many of the members own serious systems by anyone’s standards. 

To say that I’m impressed with this very fine group of individuals would be an understatement.  I encourage other manufacturers to make the trek to beautiful San Francisco and make a presentation to this club.  It will be a rewarding and memorable occasion!”

me“I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the SFAS. Testament to their tremendous enthusiasm was that they let me ramble on for 6 hours and only politely suggested I play more music and talk less 😉

I’ll be back again as soon as they recover, and I promise to play more music next time.

Most importantly my host Leslie was wonderful and patient. “

The SFAS is a group whose membership is fascinated with the thought of how to make their system sound better. I enjoyed their enthusiasm and desire to learn more about this hobby. They had good questions that allowed me to expand my talk.

SFAS and the Society officers were wonderful hosts: accommodating, helpful and keeping things on track and running smoothly. The Bay AreRobrobinson-1aa audience was outstanding, demonstrating their interest in the presentation topics with well reasoned and intelligent questions, comments and discussion. That is the best compliment a presenter can receive. All in all an enjoyable experience and worthwhile venue.
