Re: What are you bringing to CF 2019????

Voicing the PT-2400

I have limited knowledge of electronics/amp mods. But have heard that Bob mods the Sunfire "current speaker outputs" for a softer tube like sound. If I recall he uses something close to a 1 ohm resistor somewhere in the speaker output path. Any insight or helpful hints would be greatly appreciated. ...

Re: Carver Cherry 180 sampling

I was very lucky to own the very last set off hand built Cherry 180's that Bob Carver made before he got into partnership with Bob Farinelli and started to market the VTA-180's After talking with Bob, and finding the power supply was over built and would be able to run KY-120's in it. I changed out...

Re: Is this a real Sunfire Signiture?

The amount of detailed product knowledge that shows up around here is mind boggling! BDR Jesse (jjptkd) is the Enigma Machine of all things Sunfire. I was wanting a true Sunfire 625x2 and waited like three years until he had one for sale. I didnt trust anyone else other than him to know for sure I ...

Re: Carver tube amp

I have a personal rule of thumb. Never buy from anyone with less than 100% feedback.

Also send them a message and ask a bunch of legit questions. If they are vague with answers move on....

Re: Carver tube amp

I have a pair of these and they really dig deep with bass output, I don't know how they do it! Its not tight bass but they will get down there and as long as you don't over drive them they really are a beautiful sounding little tube amp. I had to pay aprox $1550ea. for mine. They respond really well...

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

Ed "sea" and I were talking about the small transformers. After he put one amp together and tested it against a 300x2 on his Plat's he was very impressed with the CF 275. Ed said it put out more volume than the 300x2 at the same volume setting on his preamp. Ed my want to chime in if I got any above...

Re: CARVERfest-275 amp badge???

First of all thanks for the compliments! I will make sure everybody gets a badge. Give me a couple weeks to get back on them. I have a lot of dynoing and race preparations to take care of over the next two or three weeks.

Thanks, Eric
