Re: Awaiting the Arrival of a Carverfest Tube Amp from Angelo!

Did it ever arrive? Hasn't come in yet, scheduled to be at my house on Thursday but I'm out of town until at least Saturday so it will be a bit still before I get a chance to spend any time with it. I know I'm eager to check it out I think it will be perfect for my current situation / set up. \:D/

Re: current system 2019

NO carver McIntosh Mc275 Looks like a nice set up! I see you noted the fact that you don't have any Carver gear, have you seen his new 75x2 tube amp? I wonder how it would compare to the Mcintosh you have? https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lis9bcgf-bob-carver-crimson-275-75wpc-stereo-amp-is-shippin...

Salutations is this place still going?
Just when you think the lights are out for good a few posts pop up here and there, seems like Carverfest is the only thing keeping this place afloat any more sad to say.

Re: Is this a real Sunfire Signiture?

Correct - 405 been seeing a lot of those lately???

Re: Awaiting the Arrival of a Carverfest Tube Amp from Angelo!

I plan on testing the amp using my Oppo Sonica DAC as a preamp initially, will be comparing it to my Sunfire Ultimate Receiver first. After that I have my Sunfire TGP-IV & 325x2 combo I'll try out and for the final showdown it will probably be using the TGP-IV / Oppo combo with the Carverfest amp ve...

Another one sold tonight at 1186.00 ... A Cinema Grand II 425 x 5 :-"
Seen that, looked like a nice amp from the original owner too but it wasn't a 425x5 it was a late model 405x5.

Awaiting the Arrival of a Carverfest Tube Amp from Angelo!

Just worked out a deal with Angelo for one of his Carverfest tube amps he had listed on eBay yesterday, really looking forward to trying it out in my main system. He tells me the Carverfest amps are superior to the factory version the VTA-20 which I really liked myself. Quote from Angelo: "The 2020 ...

Re: Side firing Drivers in ALS

If you research on this website the CarverFest Speaker build (CF 2015), you should be able to track down the crossover design and schematic for them. That will give you a basic crossover design for one ribbon and 4 of the TE side firing drivers. Probably the way to go actually since the CRS-3c has ...

Re: Side firing Drivers in ALS

Sounds like a cool project! Passive crossovers can be quite complex but you have your CRS-3c's to look at and copy I suppose, another alternative could be active bi-amping with electronic crossovers. You should post some pictures and keep everyone updated on the project.

Re: Is this a real Sunfire Signiture?

I saw that also Brian. I’ve just never saw one without ss after the serial number. I should add that the "SS" after the serial number was only used in the very first 600x2's when the only other difference between the 300x2 and 600x2 was the Signature on the face, once they started printing "Signatu...

Re: Is this a real Sunfire Signiture?

I saw that also Brian. I’ve just never saw one without ss after the serial number. Yes, this is a signature amplifier, not only is the meter reading correct and the brass connectors but the signature 405x5 is the only 5 channel amp with the binding posts in that configuration on the left hand side ...

Re: New speakers

Glad you got it worked out, you now have two pairs of my all time favorite speakers. The Silvers were a true match for my Klipsch Chorus II's, my all time favorites, each had their own strengths and weaknesses I could have lived with the Silvers for sure but at the time there was no ribbon repair op...

Re: New speakers

Very nice! I'm sure the Klipsch is doing just fine, those older SW subs are actually quite musical I'd take one over many of the newer (cheap) home theater inspired subs any day. Happy 4th!
