Welcome, Peter~

The TFM mated with Polk SDA-2s must be REALLY sweet! There are a few Polk nuts on this forum as well; they'll chime in shortly I'm certain...

Welcome Peter.

You have discovered the secret that the "audiophiles" don't want you to know. BOB rules!

Carver stuff is the best bang for your buck you will ever find.

OCCD has begun in you, don't try to stop it. Resistance is futile.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gary Rabbit is the chief enabler.

Wait until you reach the Sunfire stage. Yes it gets better.

Welcome Peter! Very nice to meet you. Glad you found us. You will find The TFM series sounds wonderful, but when you start researching other Bob Carver amps, you will come across Sunfire! Sorry to say, you may regret finding us. You will find as many of us here, you will lie to your wife/girlfriend on how much gear cost, you will purchase something and hide it in the garage until the time is right. Well, I don't want to scare you to much, heck, you just joined! Hahahaha!
Welcome again! And look forward to your future post.

Welcome aboard. I myself am also a Carver/Polk fan as well. I have had my HR-772 receiver for years and recently brought it out of storage. I then got my first polks on epray - Monitor 5B's and loved them. Then I scored on local deal for a pair of SDA-1C's with pin/blade interconnect cable. Been hooked on the setup since. Was wondering what the TFM25 sounded like through the SDA's, but, I am holding out to figure out if I want to go with something that has a little more "OOOMPH" if you know what I mean. :D :D :D

By the way, once it starts, it never stops (OCCD) that is! Again, welcome on board and enjoy the ride! 8)
