Holy Smokes Batman!!! Unbelievable! Thanks Bob!!!

Now let me get back up off the floor.....

Can I suggest a entry for each day a person attends maybe? Would that make it fair?

This is going to be one heck of a shindig! You can just feel it coming. And its all in such a great setting!

Re: **** BOB CARVER HAS DONATED AMPS TO CARVERFEST ****

I've been applying the pressure on my lovely wife to work something out with her employer so I can make it for a few days. Damn that obstetrics department! You'd think they would just ask the expectant mothers to hold on for a few more days, but Noooo! Babies have to go and be born when they want to. Hmmph! This really cramps my style!

Bob, it's hard to imagine you could be any more generous.

Weitrhino, you could always beg off and make it a boys weekend away and thank her with something nice in return ..... lets say a romantic weekend away at soem other date when you are both available. This is a event you just can't miss.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Re: **** BOB CARVER HAS DONATED AMPS TO CARVERFEST ****

I think you are all very fortunate to have THE MAN!!! Bob carver at your festival, to be able to talk to him personally about his designs and ideas for the future of Audio. Wish i was there but its long way from home. Although the thought of winning the Amplifiers mught justify the cost of getting over there.
I am enjoying the Pure sound of Carver Audio as i write =D> this.

That was me Gary. I still think so but I've added another.... Bob is the Henry Ford of hi-fi since he created affordable hi-end gear that allowed us unwashed masses to acquire and appreciate what would otherwise been out of reach. This is what Ford did ands put America on wheels.

Thank you Bob for your generosity. I Look forward to meeting you.

Frank.

Thanks for your support Bob, it will be a pleasure to talk to you at CF and I will say for all of us you sure know how to pick a great door prize for some lucky person! Eddie!

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.
