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 Society is all about.

About Us


Audio and Music at Its Finest

The Pacific Northwest Audio Society was founded in 1978 and is one of the longest running Societies dedicated to the audio arts.

Mission Statement

  • To bring together people with a common interest in hearing music reproduced at its best, for their mutual edification and pleasure;
  • To facilitate the exchange and dissemination of accurate data concerning audio equipment and musical recordings;
  • To promote, sponsor, and cultivate the highest quality reproduction of music in the home;
  • To encourage maintenance of high standards in the performance, recording and transmission of music.


  • Provide a forum for meeting other audiophiles and exchanging information on musical recordings and audio equipment.
  • Demonstrate and compare such equipment and recordings.
  • Give members opportunities to become familiar with the techniques of audio manufacturing, testing, repair, recording, broadcasting,  etc, and explore related avenues as the membership deems appropriate.

Reference System

The Audio Society owns its Reference System.  Over the years the Society has worked to build the best system possible from a combination of purchases and generous donations.  To learn about what's in our system now click here.
