Re: What are you bringing to CarverFest 2011?

I'll be bringing 2 setups this year.. both "Digital" and an "Analog" rigs this time around.

Digital Rig:
7TB Acer Home Server, Transporter, Proceed Preamp, Lightstar Pre, and Lightstar Amplifiers

Analog Rig:
Carver Silver-1 Preamp, Silver-7 Tube Amplifiers

Things are looking VERY REALISTIC for the new ALS this time around. If not, We'll grab The AL-VI's on the way up, if Roy doesn't mind :-"

Realistic?

Make it happen.
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.

We can do they up there if it comes down to it. Should take 10 minutes.

Re: What are you bringing to CarverFest 2011?

so are systems allowed in the treehouses or not? was thinking of bringing my tfm42, 390t & a set of my jbl l96,s and a preamp, not a big deal but would like to hear my jbl,s with somebodys gear if at all possible? Im sure they dont compare to the ribbon speakers some of you guys have but think they are very respectable and I love them!! been pounding on them for 30 years and they still come back for more!! would probably have to spend more then 3k to find something that I like better unless I buy used. they are the comsumer version of the jbl 4313B studio monitors and have a very good reputation!! love the west coast sound of my JBL,s let me know what you guys think as you are the experts!! :-) I know they will blow any bose shit out of the water, LOL would really love some opinions on what you guys think of them!!! frenchguy :-)..... just crankin tunes and had some thoughts after alot of beers :-) cant wait for the fest!

Not entirely true....

...as long as we have them all rented, you can play as loud as your neighbor can stand~

Re: What are you bringing to CarverFest 2011?

Knowing from experance, you should not plan on having a system in the Tree Houses. I was almost got kicked out. :shock:

Rabbit is correct, though I don't think we ever had all 4 rented for CF. Though there could always be a first.

Here is a pic of the equipment we had in the Tree House.

Re: What are you bringing to CarverFest 2011?

Cabin 5 will have good equipment because others will be bringing it. \:D/
Me, not so much. I hope near the end they ask me to bring a whatever. :-"

On the not so HiFi end, I have some strange things.

I bought this years ago: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/document?doc_id=92406

Anyone want to test it?
