Re: Carverfest Cabin Reservation "Hierarchy" Updates

This is where we run into problems. It seems that the 'long time attendees' pretty much have a lock on the event as a whole. I was speaking in terms of 'sharing' an event that is starting to outgrow the venue. I also think it's unfair for people who have attended for more times continue to be given...

Re: CarverFest 2018 Cabin Reservations

This amp build "at cost" is basically creating a huge financial incentive ($2000) for people to go to the fest if for no other reason but to cash in on said incentive. Maybe such large give aways should be kept in secret until much closer to the fest or once the bookings are already full.

Re: CarverFest 2018 Cabin Reservations

Wow, missed all of this until just now, can't believe Mark has been run off! :-s Seniority as in years attended should take absolute precedence no matter how many days planned to stay, the core group IS Carverfest, is it not? Watershed profits should be the LAST thing on anyone's mind in terms of bo...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Looks like this amp will hit the market in a couple of months with an MSRP of $2500. I was looking at the Bob Carver website and noticed they only offer the 350 & Silver Seven 700 so I sent a message asking if they were going to offer a lower powered option like the VTA-20 any time soon and got this...

Cool deal! I'd be interested in a build at home kit if available thanks.

Re: Having DAC problems of my own.. Hoping someone can help?

Well figured I'd update my situation. The Oppo arrived Wednesday afternoon and I plugged it expecting it to just work straight out of the box as a preamp and it did, just the same as the Benchmark did, would only play a small handful of files. Long story short after full set up same thing so I email...

Re: Digital to Analog audio converter problems!

No, the headphone jack is an analog output so no DAC required. The 3.5mm to RCA cables can bought on eBay for $3-$10 shipped to your door. Here's a decent quality one for $9: https://www.ebay.com/itm/AUX-Auxiliary-3-5mm-Audio-Plug-Male-to-2-RCA-Plug-Male-Stereo-Cable-Cord-Iphone/222326005161?hash=it...

Re: Having DAC problems of my own.. Hoping someone can help?

Some optical receivers cannot read above 96k....according to Schiit’s website. Be certain the DAC you select is able to process data through the input you want to use before purchase. ray Yes, good advice but a little late for me. I just assumed since my nearly 20 year old Sunfire TG-III had no pro...

Re: Having DAC problems of my own.. Hoping someone can help?

Well after striking out with the Benchmark DAC2 not being able to play my music files through the optical input I just ordered a Oppo Sonica DAC refurbished through Oppo with remote for $650 shipped. It's listed spec's are the same for digital inputs either optical or digital coax plus they offer a ...
