Thanks guys.I've been into A/V for 37 years.I've had speakers by :AAL,Pioneer,Bose,JBL,Klipsch,Martin Logan,and now the Thiel's.The Thiel's have very accurate bass down to 23Hz.I bought the TFM-15CB new around 1995 I think.Found the TFM-35 on Crag's List last year.I had a TFM-35X back in the day but I sold it to some kid.Wish I would have held on to it.I'd like to get an OPPO BDP-93 and get my hands on a Carver TX-11 tuner but I have no $$$$ now.Might also send the TFM-35 in for a rebuild at some point.The old Carver TFM'S sound great and you don't have the break your back moving them around.You guys have some great systems here.It's pretty cool how you are keeping the Carver legend alive.I'll be stopping by often to check out your systems and update mine when needed.Have a great day.

The meters on the TFM series are classics. I guess as we age, so are we! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
