Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

The Amp boards arrived Friday afternoon, along with their parts, all except the tube sockets, which can easily be added later. 75 boards, and some 6090 parts - resistors, caps, and diodes. Going insane sorting them all out and labeling them as ti R13, C7, etc. Extremely glad I didn't post any schema...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Dennis47 - Haven't seen anything of Bob (or anybody else) yet today, but when I do, I'll ask him.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Bob brought a few tubes with him - KT120s are Tung-Sol, and the 12AT7s and 12AX7s are JJs.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

"Bob's probably making final tweaks by changing various cap/resistor values looking for improvements. If boards are made then the circuit won't change without being modded with point-2-point wire now. Hope everything makes it to CF on schedule." Yeah, Bob can't ever say 'it's perfect'. But it's jus...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

No schematic yet - Jordon says Bob keeps changing things, so not worth printing. Probably won't have any far enough ahead to order anything.

:lol: Bill - If you can get Cabin 5 into any sort of 'sync', you should be the next Gaza peace negotiator.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Actually, I asked specifically about hole size, and Jordon said nothing large needed - just little drillbits for small screws, etc.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

News from Bob's GM, Jordon: It looks like a close call for receiving the kit materials on time. The shipment might not get to the mountain until maybe that first Saturday. That was the original day chosen to hand out the kits, and the good news (for me, at least) is that the assembly manual will be ...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Talked with Bob again just a few minutes ago, and he now tells me that the amps will have two circuit boards - one for both stereo channels and the other for the power supplies. A couple of amplifiers are already built and working, and as usual he can't say enough about how good they sound... Earlie...

Re: Carverfest 2018 Tube Amp Build Update

Dennis47 - Reading your questions tells me you know about as much as I do about the tube situation. As soon as anything further develops I will post about it. Right now Bob is concentrating on getting the parts delivery to be timely, but I expect he will turn to the subject of tubes before long. Jus...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

A lot of contingency plans are being made, for various dates/developments in the parts delivery drama. Re. moving the parts - Ed has a suburban, and I have my ¾ ton capped pickup plus the Carveraudio.com trailer – either truck can pull the trailer, and the trailer can haul most of the load by itself...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Wayne - No sense worrying about that, nothing we can do about it, except to hope that those various parts shippers don't fuck up in getting their orders to Bob. However, there is a backup plan forming: if the delivery is too late to catch Ed at home, we'll have them take it right to Bryson, and load...
