Let's see here...Going to my 1st CarverFest to hang with a great group of fellow hobbiests, to build the first tube amp I've ever owned, designed by my designated Paul Bunyan of audio, Bob Carver, with him looking over my shoulder...I score my own room in a cabin that threatens "NO" silicone, Lucas, M3 and vinyl.

Who the hell ever said you can't get it completely right the first time? WOW!!

Wow Kev, how many old O-scopes and Organs did you have to rob the tubes from to amass that stockpile? :lol:

And....a quad of NOS RCA 6L6GTs from the 1940s. I'm hoping to get another quad but the guy is not answering. Damn shame too. He had some 6550s I had hoped to nab also.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

It's not quite on the schedule we were hoping for, so it may not be as "finished" as we want at the fest.
Components: Power Amps-Carver m4.0t, 1.0t, 1.5t, TFM22. Sherbourne 5/5210. Preamps: Carver C-1, Music Angel, Emotiva UMC-1. Speakers: Magnepan MG3a, MG2.5, MG1.6, Athena AS-F1, Emotiva 4S. Source: Dell Precision T5500. Wheels: '99 Miata 10AE.

We have some tube rolling to do before we decide on which tubes will be included and our website (still under construction;^) will likely have an article on that process. We expect to bring some to the fest to compare, too.

This evening I packed my V20, Fosgate Signature Phono pre, Schiit Yggdrasil, Spatial Audio M3s(modded) PC and plethora of tubes including some of my deParavicini 7DJ8s, and Lindahl green dots, some seriously choice vinyl, new power cords to roll in Yggy and the EAR and some other goodies. I have to go in the office in the morning and process payroll and billing and plan to leave shortly after. M
