Suncoast Audiophile Society Pages

History and Mission

The Suncoast Audiophile Society (founded in 1994 as the Tampa Bay Listening Society) is a local group of audio enthusiasts who share an appreciation for great sound. We focus on the high fidelity reproduction of music, both analog and digital, using live performance as our benchmark. Our aim is to foster camaraderie, and share knowledge and experiences in support of local audio hobbyists.


We hold meetings at least once a month (some weeknights, others weekends) for listening sessions, gear demo's, audio chat, and/or live music. We welcome prospective members (age 18+) from the entire Florida Suncoast region.

Please note that our meetup group is PRIVATE, so we require all prospective members to register with their real name, and complete our brief online questionnaire.

One of our Board Members will follow up within 1-3 days, via Meetup Messages, requesting your phone number, so we can personally call and answer any questions before approving your membership.

Please be sure to forward your phone number via Meetup Messages (do NOT reply to the email notification, as it just bounces). Your phone number will be kept private.

Our current Board of Directors (all uncompensated volunteers) are...

  • President- Bart Andeer
  • Treasurer- Richard Setera
  • Webmaster- Alan Nastir
  • Membership Co-Chairs- Francis Endryck, Alan Nastir
  • Board Members at Large- Gary Eickmeier, Ernie Kautzman, Lenny Plotkin

  • Director of Marketing- Open

Dues (Click here for payment options)

Paid membership is required for attendance at club meetings. However, prospective new members may attend their first meeting for free (excluding our December Annual Holiday Party). Annual dues are $60/yr (payable on your membership anniversary date). Dues help cover our website costs, membership perks, and meeting munchies/door prizes. With club approval, occasional long-distance attendees who reside outside a 50 mile radius of downtown Tampa may opt to pay $10 at-the-door per meeting but will not receive our SAS polo shirt, nor other logo'd items or club membership perks. Our club Discussion Forums remain publicly accessible for all local (and distant) high-end audio enthusiasts who are not paying members, but wish to remain in touch with local audiophile goings-on.

In the meantime, check out some pics from prior meetings, and our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Page.
