    Forum Fundraiser 2018!

    16 years on line as the Greatest Music Forum Of Them All!

    Well, again it has been over a year and our kitty is empty.

    As you know by now, it costs over $5,000.00 a year to keep this place running smoothly.

    Since we do not have banner advertising (and never will although we've been asked; heck, many companies have BEGGED!) we need your assistance.

    You can donate any amount, large or small (via PayPal) by clicking here:

    Contribute/Subscribe

    Every dollar helps. If you don't have PayPal a simple check would do. You can mail it directly to us, please PM me.

    We appreciate your support! Our last fundraiser was in June of 2017, advertisers are still licking their lips regarding this place and have been for many years and I've always held them off; we get over a million hits a month here and it has been noted out there in Internetland. I do not want ads here so if you can help us out it would be appreciated. I dislike begging for money for the site but such is life... Thanks for understanding.

    The volunteer moderators and I really appreciate all of your support. The SH Forums have really taken on a life of their own since the beginning of 2002. A giant swelling membership means the Forums have lost their intimacy of the early years but that is the only downside. Our wonderful moderators keep our Forums fun. It has been great for the last 16 years!

    Please help us by donating now, THANK YOU, MEMBERS!!.

    I understand every dollar helps but I'd like to know how much would be reasonable. How much each one donates in average?

    You are welcome. I should dig deeper. This and Lenco Heaven are my favorites. I have about given up on Vinyl Engine. Not much going on there probably because they ban so many people. LOL. You cannot even mention another forum in a personal message on VE. It flags it. I thought these forums were to share info.

    I just joined the forum to kick in $15. I've been looking at the Audio Note threads since running into Warren and his equipment at T.H.E. Show. Great person and great equipment. This forum isn't too shabby either.

    A banner/ad free forum is a haven for me and worth my contribution.

    I'm going to the US by the end of July but I'm not sure anymore I can buy it, we're in the middle of a currency crisis and the table is now almost 15% more expensive than it was in April.

    There's always the GR, for less than half the price. Performance wise, it's still a very competent table.
