Vinyl rig at Carverfest 13

Post by BrianT » Fri Sep 06, 2013 8:04 pm

I would like to see how much interest there is for me to bring my vinyl rig to Carverfest 13.
As some of you are aware I drive 2500km each way. I do not want to bring my rig if its just going to sit there

If there is enough interest, and you guys are going to bring your favourite vinyl to spin in cabin 11, then i'm game to bring it
as it sounds "O" so nice

Sorry to be the one to tell you Kingman, your PL table is on the fritz again and Tom cannot find the issue. It looks like it won't be at CF. He thinks he might be able to bring it down when we visit in the spring.

Brian, I would love to have your TT, pre and amps to listen too. It is a long haul and you have customs to deal with. What ever you decide is fine with me.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Tom

To save me bring a Pre, you have a Sunfire Pre with Phono

Could you please bring that.

As for speakers we will just use one set and switch, or bring a second set down.

If need be I can bring you my Pro-Ject 12ax7 preamp. Incase there is not a tube pre available. I would love to hear The Cars CANDY-O on that table. If you dont have room for the 625x2 we can wait till next year.

There will be tube pre-amps. I think Tom is going to bring down a highly modified C-19 and I think we could bring down a Sunfire Classic with phono stage.

With a C-19 driving a set of 305's and a Sunfire driving a set of Silver Sevens
