Some big changes in my system!

I am now in the tube amp world. I picked up a set of Bob Carver Cherry 305 amps! I have also added some other cool stuff. Jon Van L speakerworks speakers, True Image amp and a Marantz TT.

Re: Some big changes in my system!

I am enjoying them very much so far. I knew what the amps could do but the Jon Van L speakers keep suprising me with how well they sound.

Small world. I know Jon Van and used to work at Van L Speakerworks on Western Ave in Chicago, though I'm not familiar with the speakers in your photo.

Re: Some big changes in my system!

That is a big Sunfire I have in there. I put it in there for now but it will be moved to join my ALIII's again. I just had to put it in there to make a cool looking setup.

First off, congratulations on the amps!!! Is this the rig you will be bringing to Carverfest?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Re: Some big changes in my system!

Hey tuffman, congratulations on the amps! When I bought mine, I knew it was an investment for life, well worth the money. Did you buy yours new using the new distribution channel (Bob is not selling them on ebay for obvious reasons), or did you but them pre owned from someone? Just curious =)
2 Channel rigs:
Bob Carver custom made BLACK BEAUTY/RED tube amp, Carver TFM-45 (X3)
Carver C-19 tube pre amp, Carver SD/A 490t tube CD player
Carver TX-11b radio tuner, Carver TD1700 cassette deck
Carver Amazing Platinum IV, Genesis 350SE, Martin Logan Prodigy, Maggies 3.6R, Polk Audio SRS 3.1TL, KEF Reference Model One, Infinity RS Kappa 9
