Re: I just bought Bob Carver's BLACK BEAUTY amplifiers on Eb

Congrats on your purchase, they will work well with the C-19 you have.

I have tried my set of Cherry 180's with the C-19 put I do prefer the Sunfire Tube Preamp.

I think Bill (OO) is going to be pissed off, he was hoping to win them.

Hey wardsweb and helicopterpilotdoug, I always thought people in this forum were mostly from places far away from me, I didn't realize both of you are right here in central Texas!! Are there any others around here? By the way, once I get them, you guys want to get together for a music listening session??!!
