Re: Sunfire Classic Tube Preamp took a dump.

Thanks for the input guys. I just got off the phone with Rolland at Carver Audio repair and he said he would most likely be able to fix it and do a refurb on the unit. He says he's seen this problem before and described exactly what I saw. I'm getting it boxed up to ship now. It sure makes your hear...

Sunfire Classic Tube Preamp took a dump.

My beloved Sunfire Tube preamp quit on me the other day. I pulled off the lid and smelled burning electronics (ouch!). There is a lot of oil pooled in the bottom of the chassis so I assume one or more of the caps leaked. I just got off the phone with Bill at Carver Repair and he sounded pretty grim....

Re: Getting screwed by a Bitch!

They are going to bleed off all of our money alright. The government bailout of the banks was just the start. The government is a machine that has to feed itself. Just look at all the new tickets being given out by the police forces around the country to fill their dwindling coffers. They could care...

Re: Getting screwed by a Bitch!

Nooshinjohn, If I catagorized you with the conservatives I stand corrected. California is not on it's way to becoming 3rd world, it got there about twenty years ago. The gap between the poor and the wealthy has grown to the point where there is barely a middle class left. (Is this not the definition...

Re: Getting screwed by a Bitch!

As for doctors who will be leaving the practice because of medicare/medicaid cutting reimbursements that is understandable. As a matter of fact many have already left because medicare doesn't pay shit. However, this is not limited to just medicare. Most insurance companies don't pay shit either and ...

Re: Getting screwed by a Bitch!

Let me get this straight. Obama is trying to kill us all and reduce the world population to 500,000 by requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions, not allowing insurance companies to drop us when we get sick, eliminate the caps they have on annual and lifetime costs, ...

The really cool part is you have to purchase two of them if you want to listen in stereo.

Re: West Coast CarverFest????

A few of you folks have mentioned taking the party to the Northwest. Snowhomish, Wa. is a great little town for a festival such as you want to have. I've been there to visit family on several occasions and have had a fantastic time. Plus the cool rainy weather would keep people from becoming too dis...

Re: Sunfire Control Center / Preamp versions

When did The Absolute Sound review the classic tube pre-amp? Do you have a link or could you possibly copy and post it?

Re: Impressions of the Sunfire Stereo Grand Signature 600x2

I've been running this amp all year long partnered with a classic vacuum tube preamp. The sound is fantastic. I just replaced my old JBL 120Ti's with a pair of Focal Profile 918's and the sound is quite pristine and I haven't even properly dialed in the focals placement yet.I am placing the speakers...

I downloaded the SRS iWow program for iTunes and am now getting great sound from an otherwise flat digital setup.

Re: The Doors - Morrison Hotel on Gold Disc...finally

I aquired the vinyl box set about a year ago and the sound of it is very pristine-especially when played through tubes.

Re: Vinyl vs digital test

I haven't recorded any vinyl to digital yet but I have listened to the same albums on both cd and vinyl. In many instances the vinyl sounds better, minus the cracks and pops of course. Analog seems to convey the actual recording space better. A good example is to listen to the same recording through...
