    Austin seems fine from my perspective (Class D Sphinx, decent proximity to Waterloo Records). Fifty years ago I lived on the shore of the lake, across from Seattle. It was very nice, but it’s changed a ton. If I were to return to the PNW I like the Oregon Coast, but I’d have to order all of my records online. I’d be ok with that.

    Don't agree that basements 'seem' cooler as they are very humid and make you sweat more. Until I installed a mini split system in my former home in NYC, I couldn't use the basement in the summer.

    My basement is dry, and pretty much stays the same temperature year round. Kind of like a wine cellar. If you have a "very humid" basement there could be other factors.

    Hurricane season & Hurricanes are a total Nightmare.

    It gets really old. And the danger is always 'there', hanging over your head.

    There's a lot of things about South Florida that they don't tell you in the 'Travel Brochure'.

    No hurricanes where I live, just May blizzards.

    Same here. I've never experience this basement humidity issue myself. The only problem I have with basements in summertime is the lack of airflow, which is due to our deliberately keeping the windows closed to keep the cool-air inside.

    Like living in a humid area where the humidity settles at the lowest part of the house. My basement is dry with no water leaks.

    Colorado is a nice state to live with beautiful mountains around..

    RMAF is another good attraction.

    With lot of snow during winter, one may have no choice other than listening to music inside home.:oops:

    I run a humidifier in the basement which keeps it dry. I don't have windows in the finished room in the basement, which can be a bit gloomy.

    I can tell you the Southern Midwest, is horrible, no stores, humid and very little interest.

    It is too bad to have lot of Tornado and humidity and few audio stores in Southern Midwest.

    But there are some audiophiles living there actively engaged in the forums.
