Re: it's Friday Americans!

I am looking forward to a nice listening session myself. It's been too long and I have several things to listen to.

Re: it's Friday Americans!

It is often said the room is the most important component.

Audio extreme people almost always have some room feature they bemoan but have to make due with. It seems no one ever is getting to set up their system in an exactly perfect space.

Re: it's Friday Americans!

Looks very nice. No doubt, a lot of planning and anticipation.

You mention video. So you have elsewhere set up for two channel? Please say yes, so having to walk the plank won't be necessary on such a nice weekend. =; :-"

Re: Voicing the PT-2400

It really won't matter which leg it goes into. It's a loop from positive to negative, normally with just the speaker in it. In this case, you're adding resistance. Tube output stages have a higher output impedance due to that output transformer. A solid state lacks that, plus normally wraps feedback...

Re: Any mention of projects for Carverfest 2019?

Something seems to be going on here. Should an adult be needed to keep things in line?

Hang on. Checking to see if there are any. :-"

Re: New Here

I just didn't know how much Foo there was to be flung. It's past old at this point. I'd like to just enjoy audio. Maybe put on some to bring a good end to this day.

Re: Memorial Day Weekend Twenty Nineteen

So two working all weekends, no BBQ'ing, no swimming parties. No ice tea recipes. No fun plans pulled off? I entered this weekend tired but with a bit of enthusiasm for the coming months. The 3 day weekends at the beginning and end of the summer are just kind of break points in my mind. My dear old ...

Re: New Member Checking In.

Whoa. Whoa there hoss. I don't know directly a sole here. I was just throwing in some crass humor to try and put in a bit of a break to how far off this guy's intro was getting dragged. I don't know a thing about this business and don't want too. I come here for audio fun. This is dragging business ...

Re: Memorial Day Weekend Twenty Nineteen

Due to the overwhelming interest in what's going on this weekend, I think this topic needs to change to something that folks WILL take the time to stop and post about. What tubes are you using to listen to music this long (whatever it's name) weekend? There, that oughta work. 8) Oh, I wanted to add ...

Re: New Member Checking In.

That makes me think that I need to get my very own waterboy. That would just be very nice. Life would be just so much nicer then. Something to ponder perhaps.

Re: Memorial Day Weekend Twenty Nineteen

Did I get the year right? That's what I get for posting while sleepy. No wonder there's a law against that. :lol: None the less, the air this morning just feels a little easier to breathe, knowing we have a little extra space to enjoy this weekend, whichever one it is. :-" BDR PS....it let me edit t...

Memorial Day Weekend Twenty Nineteen

So the three day weekend is here. Hope everyone has at least a little something relaxing or special planned. A steak for the grill and/or some new music to set down to. With lots going on, much of it outside activities, I am kind of afraid it might start to get quiet around here. :lol: I got a Heart...

Re: New Here

So you finally made it in the door. Nice. Sorry it was such a deal to get going. Finally get to be able to talk Carver on the real Carver forum though. Some amazing knowledge around here when you can get somebody woke up.
