Re: current system 2019

Wonder on what basis would Magnepan have been able to go after Apogee? I guess any patents on their technology. Have try a search and come up with what they've ever patented maybe. BDR Magnepan ribbons are a different design than the Apogee, and IIRC the Apogee panels are electrostatic, not planar ...

Re: CF 275 KT 120 tubes in a fog

Yes, there are components inside the tube called "getters". The getters are coated with a metal powder before vacuum sealed, then they are heated with microwave energy to cause the powder to sputter coat the glass. The metallic spots on the glass are to attract impurities and capture them. Some impu...

Re: current production KT88/6550??

The KT120s were chosen because most of the participants wanted power. Bob mentioned 6550s were the choice for good sonics. Just for the record, my reply about Bob's tube selection wasn't in reference to the CF 275 build. Bob's earlier amps, Cherry 180's, IIRC used the Genalex Gold Lions as the stoc...

Re: current production KT88/6550??

Bob used the Genalex Russian re-production tubes before going to the Tung-Sol KT120. I don't know the reason, if production of the Genalex had stopped or if he decided the KT-120 was more desirable for power output

Re: current production KT88/6550??

Im also partial to the vintage tubes. New production Svetlana are very good also, seems they did a very good job of copying the original SED design. Another good choice is the JJ/Tesla KT88. The 12AX/AT7 by JJ isn't great but the KT88 has great tone/musicality.

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.

Re: Is this a real Sunfire Signiture?

Maybe they smudged Bob's signature with a cleaning product, then wiped it off entirely? Buy it and have Bob sign it again next year LOL.

And this one is always a favorite! Rocky Mountain Way.... -ctM9giFEJ0 Wonder if this might have maybe been before Joe "cleaned up"?

Re: 2018 Carver 275 Amp build review

Nice review Ray! I'm running a single CF amp with my ALS originals W/60" ribbons at the moment. Sound impressions are similar; but I'm also doing some processing/sonic holography to get the image extension. This is partly because my room does not allow for ideal placement, and I need room correction...

Re: Carver tube amp

The two amps are different S/N's, so I don't think it's a scam. Maybe a husband/wife. Sometimes eBay gives listing discounts for volume sellers.
