Any other audiophiles in Mueller?
by Chris on July 5th, 2011

I just got to wondering if there are any fellow audiophiles in the neighborhood. Home audio has been an interest of mine for many years, but I've never really had any other audiophiles around to hang out with and learn from, mostly piecing together my (limited) knowledge from the 'Net. The past few years, I haven't spent as much time on the hobby as I used to, and I now have the bug to get more back into it.

I'm more into listening to music than tweaking my system. And I'm more into listening to music from vinyl than from any other source. I have a system that I'm very happy with right now: it's just at the right spot to make people at both ends of the spectrum laugh--"normal" people at the idea that anyone would pay that much for "a stereo" and really hardcore audiophiles at the idea that anyone could bear to listen to such a "mid-level" system. So that feels just about right to me. Anyone else out there?

Yes, although no record player here :) I can't really say that my house is setup in such a way architecturally that allows the equipment to really shine though in the living room (sub-optimal speaker layout because of other family priorities) and then the den upstairs is missing a wall due to the staircase. The bedrooms would be better but not practical. So really for good listening I've got a couple of sweet pairs of headphones...

Cool! I sympathize with architectural challenges. I'm fortunate to have an extra bedroom to use as a dedicated listening room (well, that was actually by design in choosing the floorplan)--it is great to have such a space, but the size and shape of the room require less than ideal speaker placement. My room would probably make a real purist shudder, but it basically works for me.

I think I can definitely be lumped into the Mueller audiophile group. Audio & Video have been a passion of mine for many years. A couple of years ago I even made the decision to open my own custom A/V sales and installation business. Best decision I ever made. Actually doing what I love today and getting paid to do it. Was a little worried at first that I might get burned out on the hobby and it wouldn't be "fun" anymore but that hasn't happened. I enjoy reading up on the latest and greatest, traveling to trade shows and tinkering with the equipment as much as I ever had.

My personal system seems to be evolving on a fairly regular basis. As time and money allow. Lucky to have a back family room that I was able to close off from the rest of then house. This and making sure that I insulated a number of interior walls during the initial build process really cut down on noise bleeding into bedrooms/other spaces from this back family room/home theater.

Maybe we could start a monthly meeting of mueller audio/video philes? We could cover a specific topic each week and everyone could share their experience or ask questions? We could cover things like subwoofers, speaker placement, wall mounting a tv, room acoustics, multiroom audio, etc. A different topic each month. What do you guys think? Anyone else in mueller have any thoughts on this? We may have a new Mueller group in the works.

I would likely fall into this category as well, although I don't devote the time or money required to truly be an audiophile. My focus is on getting the best stereo imaging I can and an even frequency response (within budget). I'm like Chris though...normal people and audiophiles both laugh at me so I'm probably at a 'healthy' level of obsession.

I run short on time a lot these days but I would definitely consider going to some informal meetings. I'm not exactly the best at keeping up with this forum, to be honest, so if you guys get something going and see no response from me feel free to prod me with a PM.
