I've giving a shout out to my friend Sid Trehan and his new venture, the Global Audiophile Network. This is a discussion forum where audiophiles from around the world can discuss all types of audiophilia, and it's a great way to find out what is happening in other countries and cultures. (For anyone who has seen the short film about the Athens Audiophile Club, you'll know that there are a lot of audio "hot spots" on different continents.)
Sid, in fact, is located in India, and there's something about his approach to audio that is fun and filled with wide-eyed wonder. If you're getting tired of those grumpy, cranky audiophiles on other discussion forums, check out the Global Audiophile Network at http://www.theaudiophile.net/.
