Am I missing something (besides CarverFest)? What is the "new, never heard before toy" that Bob brought with him?
Bob brought along with him, a brand new
(MFG Date 2006) Sunfire Classic Tube Control Centre with him, to replace the one mine that got lost on the way to him after it was received at Rita's.
I had sent my Sunfire Classic Tube Control Centre to Bob for him to do some mod's on the MC Phono Stage.
The new Sunfire Classic Tube Control Centre had the mod's done on it. he added 2 extra tubes on the Phono Stage, bringing the total # of tube in
the Phono Stage to 8. Also added a few resistors.
What that has done to the noise floor is fantastic, it has lowered the noise floor by at least 6db. Before the mod, with the volume control set at 12:00 o'clock
the his was very noticeable without a record playing. Meaning the very quite parts of a song, where being drowned out by the his.
Now after the mod, with the volume control turned up full, with no record playing it is hardly noticeable. When you are playing a record there is no background hiss at all.
