??? Who is bringing what equipment to be signed by Bob ???

Post by Toy Maker » Tue Jun 17, 2008 11:46 am

Just thought it would be a good idea to get some kind of idea how much equipment will be there for Bob to sign...
I know he is expecting to be signing a bunch of stuff, but I thought a list might be a good idea.

I would like him to sign my:

1) Lightstar Premap
2) Lightstar Amp
3) C-1000a
4) ?? I am thinking about removing the covers to my AL-V's and have him write a little something on the panels...
If I ever sell them some day, it would be a nice little surprise for someone down the road.

I'd love for him to sign every piece I own, but will probably settle for what I'm bringing, the 9t's, 490t, Plats, and maybe my two M-500t's just to get 'em signed. It sure makes them special, and I'll probably never sell any of those items.

I'm hoping to bring a 1.0t and TX-11a. How many of these tuners have his signature on them? 8-[

Well since I reserved a bedroom I am bringing my whole system.....My system is not what you would call a public address system....meant for smaller spaces.....anyway I'd like to have my TFM-45, CT-23 and my SD/A 490t signed.....but I am quite sure Bob may develop carpal-tunnel by weeks end so I will settle for anything he can sign....not picky.......just happy to have him available for conversation. :D :D :D :D :D

You guys remind me of a bunch of screaming pre-pubescent schoolgirls at a Zak Efrom sighting armed with their Miss Kitty autograph books.

If everyone brings 3 to 5 pieces to get signed, that might make anywhere from 50 to 100 pieces to sign. So, how about this as an idea: everyone brings whatever he wants but chooses 1 piece of equipment to get signed. That way the demands and pressures on Bob's time are reduced and the whole exercise becomes a lot more relaxed. And if Bob does decide that he signs everything in sight, then all the better.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

LOL....couldn't have said it better myself.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Why would a genius, a multimillionaire and a cat that's looking forward to attending this year's Carverfest want a measly $5.00 a sig?

All I request would be a decent chat and some good times and fun with the man and the chance to thank him for doing what he does, the way he does it and for helping to change the way audio has evolved. What more could I ask for?

I can hear Ray right now......"Just the chance to hear Bob setup the Amazings with the gear on hand.....THAT right there is worth the admission you have to pay to attend Carverfest. Where else are you gonna get that kind of expertise?" :D
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 have a unique idea for Bob to sign some of my gear. My thought was that if Mr.Carver sees all of his components feeding my Linn speakers and approves of the combination I was hoping he might sign my TFM45 and my Linn's along with the amp.(This will help ensure that the speakers are never fed by anything other than Mr.Carver's equipment) =D>

Wait a minute. Nobody told me there would be an admission charge. :lol:

My point was... I have done this exact thing in the past... and when you wave $500 at someone, it tends to make the task of signing a bunch of shit seem pretty small....
Point in case.....

Doug Bradley (for those who don't know him by his sir name) "PINHEAD"
I paid him $400 to sign 50 sheets of paper and 10 blocks of wood for me once a few years back... He pissed and moaned at first, till I whipped out the cash...

Hell, I'd rather he can sit there in a cushy chair sipping his DietCoke and finishing a bowl of my Bisque while he walks me through the set-up procedure for my Amazings.
THAT ALONEwould be worth the price of admission.

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

I think the original thought regarding the $5.oo autograph was to use the money to benefit a charity or something.
