Brian, since we are so close to the event, why don't you just have Bob bring it there?



Tom.

That's what I am hoping for, but before he can bring it he has to get
hold of me and tell me he's finished working on it.
He's had it since 4th April, and he told me he needed it for a couple of weeks.

But we all know how fast the master works. :rolleyes:

George.

My wife is very busy at this time, trying to get export documents
so we can bring our gear from Ottawa,Canada to CF10 without paying
US import duty and taxes.

All the gear other than the B&W speakers and Shelter 901 cartridge
are US made products.

It's always a hassle for us Canadians crossing the US/Canada border with anything
other than our birthday suit.

Once we have the export documents, then she will work on the reimport documents
for when we return to Canada.

If all the documents work out. We are planing on bringing.

Sunfire Classic Control Centre (If I get it back from Bob)
Pair Bob's Cherry 180's with upgraded Shuguang Treasure KT88 tubes
VPI Classic Turntable.
Pair B&W 703 speakers.
Plus a few Vinyl albums, If you have any favourite vinyl albums PLEASE bring them.

Brian

George.

You are correct, we will be driving this year 20hrs or so. last year we flew into Charlotte and rented a car.

Any vinyl that you want, the system will be set up in WS2, I am not bringing a CD player, this will be a pure vinyl system.

Any other takers on bringing vinyl.

I have 6 Steely Dan "CDs". The rabbit made me buy those. :lol:

I agree LPs rule, but here on the lake mostly play LPs on the turntable never put to CD. Last year I got in all the stuff to put them to the computer, but lost interest as at the end of the day as I failed to find a reason to do that. I am kinda of a geek and it seemed like a fun computer project. Then the audio side of me took over and told me not to mess with perfection.

Most guys I know who play LPs go to great extremes to put on a clean/perfect record. Many of my favorites were bought by me in the 60's. Those guys have been through a lot of parties and are kinda beat up. I love them. When I was at Clemson in the metal dorms, it was too loud to study in the day time, but you could sleep if you put on Mantovani, Ferrante and Teicheri, or Bill Justis real loud.

I also have a lot never or seldom played (like my million dollar Beatles collection). I have some TAMS I bought duplicates of that are not opened, and while no one else might want to open them - they are a treasure to me.

As I think about it, this is silly. I might only live 50 more years, or may crash on the Harley going to the Walmart tomorrow. Protecting my needle will not mean much then. I think I will spend some time next week playing my most beat up records before I die and my kin sells them off on ebay.

I could bring some perfect or some fun LPs up.

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

Re: 100 DAYS AND COUNTING !!!!!!!!!!!

I found this list of stuff from CF '09 that may be of help to you newbies. Feel free to edit/add:

Just a reminder to all that are planning on attending Carverfest, here's a short list of things to bring as well as some requests.

#1 and most important.....a flashlight with enough batteries to last the event.
#2 - It has been requested that you bring your favorite cup that you normally drink out of. This will help to not waste drinks/suds not to mention it will help with the trash which we would like to keep to a minimum [yeah right].
#3 - Bring things that you might want to sell while the event is going on. We will have a for sale table/area that will be locked up at night.
#4 - Bring a selection of your favorite music and test tracks that you would want to listen to on the various rigs.
#5 If you have any specialty drinks that you want, bring the ingredients. We will not have a bar filled with all the various liquor to make anything you heart desires. If you want a Tequila Sunrise, you had better bring OJ, grenadine syrup and tequila for example.
#6 - Power strips and short heavy duty extension cords. We don't want the same "issues" we had last year concerning this. If you have one or two or even three, bring 'em please. We'd rather have too many than not enough.
#7 - If you have a folding chair for you and your guest(s), be sure to pack them as well. There will NOT be seating provided at the two main host cabins for 50 people so if you want to cop a squat, bring a chair.
#8 - Bring an umbrella and maybe a spare set of shoes [just in case].
#9 - Be sure to pack a swimsuit. I believe that all of the cabins have a jacuzzi and there's nothin' like sippin' a cold one while in the jacuzzi that overlooks some of North Carolina's most beautiful mountains! For the women, the swimsuits are optional.
#10 - Bring some extra cash. You might just never know what might be for sale.
#11 - for those that plan on doing some laundry while you are there, bring some detergent.
#12 - just a friendly reminder. If you have trouble getting up the dirt road/hill when you get there, be sure to have the phone list printed out so that you can call for assistance. You might want to try releasing some of the air pressure out of the tires to help with the traction.

No doubt. One thing I would like to amend. The cabins do provide one small box of laundry detergent.
