System after Tubes

Post by BrianT » Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:43 am

After looking at Eric's pictures with all those tubes, it brings back memories.

As some of you are aware, I sold all my tube equipment
and gave my CF11 Amp and Lucas Line Stage to my daughter in Vancouver.

So this is my setup without a single tube in the system.

I am looking forward to building a pair of tube amps at this years Carverfest.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Very, very nice Brian! Love the simplicity as Wayne mentioned. Also, very clean setup, easy to get at everything to troubleshoot or swamp out equipment such as CF forthcoming new tube amps.😎

Nice set up. I'm looking for a used Aurender N100H. How do you like it?

I really like the Aurender N100H, The conductor app is very nice.
Sound quality way better than my custom built Mac Mini.
But like everything it has its down falls
as it only has USB out and does not support Roon.

I like the looks of the new Auralic Aries G2, but its pricy at around 4Kusd

Nice looking system Brian, I bet it sounds awesome! I listen to solid state a lot but always find myself going back to the toobs :D

I took the Cherry's to a local Hifi shop to have some Goldpoint stepped attenuator's installed. They were a Carver dealer back in the day so they were very familiar with his name. They were floored and yet not suprized with how good Bobs new tube amps sounded. They had them hooked to a set of B&W's very similar to yours and let me say those are some nice sounding speakers.
