Henry Kloss has made some decent "affordable stuff" through the years! He was the founder of Acoustic Research, Advent, Cambridge Audio and Tivoli Audio... I have the Tivoli Audio setup in my office- sounds great for miniature stuff!

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?

I will probably bring the VTL tube amp, the 2.3tls, marantz sacd player. Pretty simple stuff.

On the fence about bringing the "small fridge" and the Silver 7Ts

Re: What are you bringing to CarverFest 2011?

No one cares.
Yall think I don't have good shit, but I do.
The deal is to get things that fit together.
My system is built by Rabbit.
When we find a way to improve it, we will.


I will be at Carverfest with 25k tunes. They won't be the crap you get from Apple or Amazon. I own these CDs and they are FLAC lossless. To put all this to a hard drive is many hours of work. Nothing goes well. ](*,) It aint like Bob at his kitchen table, but it is a real chore. Things fuck up. If you think this is easy - go for it. =; All mine have been run through Jai and have album covers and most are verified accurate digital copies. - (like your CD). Actually, your CD or wave may not have this extra check. In a test of files, and not equipment, mine are the standard you hope for. Toy and Tom have problems, but your ears will not.


I don't collect music.
I collect music I like.
Most of it is from before most reading this were born, like the 70's.

Sharing or trading thousands of dollars of tunes would be wrong.


Gear is what it is. If someone stole all my gear - I could buy more.
If someone steals my tunes - they cannot be replaced.


Come on over to Cabin 5 and trade. Bring your best stuff to check or buy tunes. This is as good as pure files get.

This is by any measure - $20K worth of music -
I can't trade it for a tube thing from Bob.
Sometimes I wonder if Bob is more like most of you and more into gear than tunes.

That is funny. As I don't know crap about gear, I am going to ask Bob as to his favorite tunes.




I will not let my crap go for less than a SunFire 625X2 amp or a six pack of strange beer.
Don't show up with a 300X2 or Miller Lite.

CarverFest Audio Show

It might be a good thing if some would list the gear they are bringing to CarverFest, and what cabin it will be in.
That way some (me) could read the experiences that will be available.
This will be like an audio show for me, and I could research some of the gear so as to have a better understanding of what I get to see/hear.
===============
==========================================

Lots of great gear will be coming to #5, so I am not bringing as much as most of you. Still, I think mine will have some interest to a few. :D

- Acer Netbook - this is an early model with small CPU and running Windows XP. I put a 500g hard drive in it and 2 gigs of memory. I mainly use this on my boat like a super ipod. It is a good example of how little you need to spend to get pretty good computer audio.

- 27" monitor, wireless mouse and keyboard. With those, or a big TV, you can sit across the room and have control. I have WinAmp as the player on it. The play list fills half the screen in big font and the other half puts up the lyrics for the song that is playing. The momitor also makes DVD Concerts more fun as the netbook has a tiny screen.

- DAC - this is a tiny DAC I bought direct from a guy who made it in Hong Kong. It does 24bit, and I got it because the little thing has one tube punching out the top and was too cute to pass up =D> - It has no brand name, but the exterior is first class.

- Audioengine P4 speakers - These little 8 inch tall speakers are going to impress you -- I guarantee that. 8)

- CarverFest Amp hand built by OO under the guidance of Bob Carver -- =D> =D>

------------

Post what you might bring and which cabin it will be in.

Re: CarverFest Audio Show

In cabin #5, here will be a real show of great audio equipment. I doubt any cabin can match it.
Still, different can/might be good.

Yep, money alone does not make a system.
Guys in Cabin #5 have spent a lot more than $$ putting dream systems together.
The real test is not in graphs, but pleasing the ears.
