Joining The New Jersey Audio Society
←Next meeting: May 20, 2018 2:00 PM
The New Jersey Audio Society was established in the 1980s as a group interested in high performance audio playback. We encourage and welcome anyone interested in high performance playback systems from 78's to DXD/8xDSD to join and participate through active membership. Annual dues are currently $60. Membership includes a subscription to
, the publication of the New Jersey Audio Society, and invitations to attend meetings as well as to communicate through the submission of material or letters for publication in the newsletter and participate in our newsgroup site on the web.
We try to vary our meeting content among product demonstrations, music, instructional meetings (tweaks, room treatments, DIY, etc.) and just plain hanging out and listening to music on members’ systems. As examples, we have had demonstrations by manufacturers of high-end audio equipment, visits by recording engineers (including playback and mixing of master tapes), special meetings at dealers’ facilities, component and speaker builder meetings where some members who build speakers and electronic components have discussed and shown their designs, meetings dedicated to demonstrations of and discussions relating to vintage audio equipment, and demonstrations from professional musicians of their instruments and discussions of recordings of the great performers on those instruments. We also have annual summer picnic and year-end holiday party meetings.
Anyone interested in joining the New Jersey Audio Society should contact club officers via our
Dues paying members get full access to our club website, which includes the published newsletters, the meeting schedule and other features. The club is organized by a committee of volunteers. Members are eligible to attend our monthly meetings, which include food (provided by the host, typically, but paid for in part by the club). Members are also entitled to special event invites and holiday party prizes. We offer limited access to the website for a time to prospective members and one free meeting invite so they can get a better understanding before joining. Members can also bring a guest to meetings. Keep in mind that active members would need one free Sunday per month to attend most meetings, even though attendance is not required.
