What I REALLY miss about CarverFest was seeing the astounding diversity of gear that people bring, and all the different ways that other brands are being used in Carver systems.

Agreed Gary. The best thing about "Vintage Systems" you've had over a 40 year period are the memories, especially from college.

Marantz called the horizontal tuning, "Gyro" tuning.
