Re: CarverFest 2019 Cabin Reservations Sep 4th–18th

Has anyone tried contacting them via e-mail? It took a long time for me to get a quote from them, but they did respond via e-mail (eventually).

I took a look at their website, they still have the dates for CF '19 blocked out as unavailable to the general public.

Re: The 4th

Starbucks Corporate apologized for the action taken by an employee at the request of a customer. I can't understand how anyone could feel 'unsafe' when officers are at a restaurant or coffee shop. Something similar happened in Oakland, CA recently; the OWNERS asked the Oakland PD to stop visiting th...

Re: Who Wants a CarverFest 2019 Ten Octave LP-1 Kit Build ?

I have one and this is what a posted as a review.................I have an LP1 serial #13 and I must tell you it is outstanding! Extremely well built, high quality parts. It plays way way above it’s price. I put it with my Carver 350s and Amazing Silvers in place of a Jolida tube pre and the result...

Re: Who Wants a CarverFest 2019 Ten Octave LP-1 Kit Build ?

Bump!

Folks, if you have any reservations; don't. I've been listening to various tube pre-amps and so far, the 10-Octave is cleaner and more musical sounding than the others I've used. $699 for a kit is a great deal.

Re: Voicing the PT-2400

Eric you should bring the 2400 (and TFM-75) to CF-19. I'm sure Bob would be happy to help show you how to mod it! Bring the schematics of the 75, should be available at CS. You might be able to recruit RobertR or James to help with the soldering/assy work.

Re: CarverFest 2019 Subwoofer Build ?!?!?!?!?

Nice offering James! Would this sub be able to run in parallel (driven by a single amp channel) with the Sonorous (2015 'Fest) speakers? It would be great if the stands could be modded to make the sub you are designing the integrated base for them.

Re: Who Wants a CarverFest 2019 Ten Octave LP-1 Kit Build ?

I recommend this preamp, it’s good enough to pull my BillD c-11 off my main rig! Well, I'm glad there is someone else who can hear the difference between a clean sounding preamp and one that suffers from IMD/oscillations. =; FXBill and JG have designed a REALLY SWEET sounding preamp. If you didn't ...

Re: CarverFest 2019 Cabin Reservations Sep 4th–18th

Thanks, Ray. Unfortunately (for me) I'm finding that getting in to see Dr's about it is like pulling teeth, and obtaining coverage might be another battle. Meanwhile, the potential for permanent nerve damage continues. F'ing ridiculous, but I've got to be glad the pain/weakness is not worse than it ...

Re: Amazing identification

..I have two pair... Hi. Welcome to the site. You said you have two pair. As Russ indicates, it sounds like one is an original set that had the Carver supplied upgrade installed. This included two 60 inch ribbons replacing the four 30's. A new crossover was also provided. The second pair sounds lik...

Re: Voicing the PT-2400

I suspect that since the power levels are 2x the TFM-45, Bob decided to voice it differently. The TFM-45 also has a feedback loop to voice it as well. I suspect that Bob used more feedback to voice the 75 considering how much wattage would need to be dissipated using an inline resistance. You might ...

Re: Amazing identification

Hello! Are the 4 woofers with the aluminum honeycomb drivers on one speaker or both? Those honeycomb woofers were the 'original' design of the ALS. When Bob first started marketing them the ribbons were 2x 30" per-side and the woofers were planar/honeycomb. He later offered an upgrade to 60" ribbons...

We're 5 pages in Wayne, I think the damage has been done with regards to the OP.

Or, should I start a thread titled "Reasons I wouldn't do business with Jim Clark, and Greg Garska"? :-k :lol:

I would be happy to demonstrate the BillD C1 for you, side by side, to an unmodded C1. I can also audition a wide array of vintage speakers and amps, and if vinyl is your thing, I’ll even fire up the TT😉 (bring your own records though, mine are all boxed up!).
