Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Audio Society
The Pacific Northwest Audio Society has been dedicated to the exploration and enjoyment of fine music and electronics since its founding in 1978. We're audiophiles and music lovers with diverse backgrounds and a range of interests in music and audio reproduction. Although the Society is based in the Seattle area we serve the entire Northwest region and draw enthusiasts from as far as Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia, for new and exciting audio adventures.
Our membership network includes a number of top audio experts from the Northwest and around the world. Check out our Membership page to learn how you can become a member. For about the price of a latte each month you'll support the Audio Society's ongoing efforts and gain a plethora of benefits for yourself in the process. If you’re in the area, drop in for a meeting and see for yourself what the club is all about.
Tuesday, December 9th, 2014 - Meeting Location - Kirkland Woman's Club
407 1st Street
Kirkland, WA 98033
The December 9th meeting will be our annual holiday social event. It will be a time for conversation and interaction between club members. We are encouraging folks to bring any analog or digital music that you really enjoy which may not be widely known by the membership.
In addition, there will be tables set up for an informal swap meet to find a home for those items that have been taking up space in your closet or drawer. Please bring any signage for your items.
The club will be providing food and beverages for this event and are requesting a monitory donation to help defer the cost.
As a reminder, our annual dues are just around the corner and your participation is vital to the success of our club.
We hope to have a large turnout for this meeting and look forward to the music, camaraderie and conversation!
