Welcome to the Clubhouse!
If you’re a HiFi hound like me and live on or near the Gold Coast, up until very recently, you would have found it to be a bit of a wasteland when it comes to high-end hifi. In fact, when doing some research, it turns out there hasn’t been a dedicated hifi specialist here for almost a decade and certainly no hifi social scene of late.
After hosting a few informal get togethers over the last 12 months I decided it was time to pull this together into a more structured group that also had a space of its own to share info and plan gatherings.
Say hello to Gold Coast Hifi Clubhouse — a home for GC Audiophiles to meet-up online and in person to share our common love of all things hifi.
To help bring us all together, I’ve added a logo just for the Clubhouse members to use. Anytime you see the Clubhouse icon pop-up, you know it’s the most important thing in your inbox that day ;)
I’ll get around to developing some perch for everyone soon (hopefully in time for Xmas) but for now, I just wanted to make sure we spread the word far and wide that there’s a new home for hifi nutters on the Gold Coast.
Join our online community
To start things rolling, we’ve set up a dedicated Facebook page so it’s easy for everyone to communicate and to coordinate events.
We’re hoping we don’t need to set up specific rules for member behaviour for the group page and trust that everyone will play nicely together and be respectful of others opinions, and most importantly, stay on topic. Use common sense and let’s keep off topics of religion, politics and other non hifi related areas. There’s more than enough spaces for that kind of malarky without adding to the noise ;)
We will all get the most out of the group if contribute regularly and try to be as encouraging of others to get involved as we can.
Come to a Monthly GTG
While everyone enjoys being able to chat online, we really want to make sure that we make this a social group that can meet up regularly in person to share our passions (the hifi kind to be specific).
Social get togethers (GTG’s) are a fantastic way to learn from others and explore a range of equipment we otherwise wouldn’t get the opportunity to listen to.
We’ve been holding these on a semi regular basis (Covid-permitting) at GC Hifi’s listening space at Arundel and are hoping to continue to expand the events to eventually include a range of manufacturers and suppliers so you get the chance to speak directly with some of the greatest hifi minds in the country.
The monthly GTG’s, are usually hosted on a Saturday afternoon once a month. Events are by invitation to Clubhouse members only and are limited in size to ensure everyone gets the chance to experience each listening space without overcrowding.
We will list our upcoming dates, times and what components will be playing on the day on a regular basis.
If you would like to find out more or reserve a spot just message us and we will get back to you.
NEXT GTG: Saturday, 16th October
4pm to 8pm.
This is only the second time in Australia the F1-12's have been available to be heard, so don't miss out on this opportunity to hear Fyne's finest.
On top of the F1-12's we will also explore one of my favourite speakers, the marvelous F-703's as well as Fyne's top of the line F1-8 stand mount speakers.
Three listening rooms will be set up to show case each speaker system and all have been paired with a range of carefully selected and tuned hifi equipment to ensure they are sounding their best.
We are also hoping to have a Zoom hook up on the big screen with one of the owners of Fyne Audio who will field questions and tell us about this young Scottish speaker company.
Drinks and snacks will also be provided.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to find out more or book your spot.
