Club Goals


The Arizona Audio Video Club was formed in the mid 80's.  The greater Phoenix population has now grown  to 4.5 million people yet in January of 2019 the Club had only 25 paid members and was on the verge of shutting down.


Today's goal is to increase membership

by updating the social media presence

as well as offering more Special Events that members tell us they want to attend.


Attracting younger members is the paramount. As Millennials come to find

they are missing much detail of every song they love so much, we HiFi buffs are presented with an opportunity to grow the ranks.  

Sonos and other portable sound systems serve the important purpose of allowing music to travel. Forward thinking companies like PS Audio have generated  entry level products (Sprout) that allow for an affordable entry option.  The Goal must  be to offer a HiFi system with streaming capabilities, room correction and Speakers that retails at $1,000 or less. 

Lofty yes  but why not set the bar high?


We actively seek out member input

of ideas or recommendations for improvement. Please email any Steering Committee member  your thoughts.
