Home again. No problems other than a fuzzy head for the drive home. I think it was the Makers Mark that did the most messin with sasquatch Sunday night. Got my system set up again and there was no damage from transit. I had a great time and thanks to all who attended for making it a wonderful experience. Only 360 days till the next CarverFest. WooHoo! Can't wait to hear "the wall of sound" again. Hey Rabbit, I told the better half last night I wanted a Signature 7. She wasn't too enthused. Matter of fact, she said "only if you get rid of some of your other junk first". Can you imagine? Calling vintage Carver gear junk? I think I have grounds for divorce should I ever need it.

Ok, guys...

I'm finally back to work, and will be uploading my pix after I get back from lunch.

I also have a few video clips I can upload if people want to see them?
I haven't looked at them myself yet, so when I get back, I'll take a look at them, and if any are worth showing, I'll post them as well

Yeah, the unofficial "Bass test" w/ MR standing on top of it barely standing up!
On the loft, I witnessed this.....Whooaaa!
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.

I doubt it would have been much use though, those F'n things get LOUD!!

Maxx, that hat was made for Ya buddy. Projects danger and intrigue. Won't do you any good next year though when it's time for payback for messin with sasquatch.

By the way Toymaker, I like my new avatar. :D
