Hey local dudes... join up! I am starting this in hopes that it takes off as a legitimate Dallas Audio Society. I made a post on the LSAF Facebook page for promotion as well.

The ANT logo was created by Polk's own D2lo. Thanks Michael!

    I'm not an really audiophile (though I'd love to be).

    I'm now borderline North Texan/West Texan.

    I'm not on Facebook.

    Three strikes and I'm out???

    Sounds like a Game of thrones season finale.....Audiophiles of the North, west, south, east all coming together in Texas for a final battle. Who will sit on the throne when the smoke clears ? The midget audiophile from Florida ? The fire breather from California ? Stone cold dudes from Jersey ? The noble audiophile anarchists from Texas remain supreme ?

    I await the results....but I may just wait and watch the whole season in a row. ;)

    After a 2 hour long great conversation with Russ, the clown faced child molester everyone including the FBI is looking for, it seems that I will be heading down.

    Just need to clear it with my better half and we will be golden.

    I used the Jedi mind trick on him. Distracted him with talk of class D amps and subliminaly suggested he buy a ticket to Dallas. My work here is done.

    My apologies, Skip. Did not mean to steal your thunder.
    He only called me to make sure you aren't a con-man and wasn't selling him on second class snake oil futures.
    I vouched that your snake oil is the best to be had in North America.
