“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.”
Speaker Designer | VP of Engineering ELAC
“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.”
CEO | PS Audio
“What a great group of people to speak with! 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.”

“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 Area 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.”
President and CEO, Parasound Products, Inc.
“Presenting to the members of the San Francisco Audiophile Society was an enjoyable experience and well worth my time. They are attentive, respectful and best of all, curious. Leslie Lundin’s hospitality to both members and presenters is extraordinary. A great way to spend an afternoon.”
Founder/Inventor Magnetic Conduction Technology
“Presenting to SFAF has been a great experience! This group is a energetic and enthusiastic crowd hosted by veteran audiophile Leslie Lundin.
We all enjoyed excellent food and drink in a warm atmosphere with a audio great system and were eager to supply whatever was needed to make it a great experience.
The group asked excellent questions and had an great camaraderie that makes it enjoyable to be around. The SFAS is filled with professional people eager to learn all aspects of audio. Great food, great drink and great people make for a wonderful platform to present.
Thanks to all of you at SFAS for hosting my presentations on Magnetic Conduction and High Fidelity Cables.”
Albert Von Schweikert
Chief Designer | Founder
“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 separate 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!”

It was our extreme pleasure to have a Soundsmith zoom webcast with all of the SFAS attendees. One of the best things about our current environment of being digitally connected is that we have an opportunity to interact on a one to one basis, even on a group call, answering questions and giving you advice for your listening enjoyment.
We hope is that in the not too distant future we can have an in-person chance to meet with your group and have a wonderful listening party.
Please stay safe and enjoy your music, it heals so much.
