OMG, is that a picture of Skip wearing those AKG 701s? In that picture it is almost like looking in a mirror.

Quite scary in fact! Well, except for the hair ..... :lol:



BTW, where is F1nut?

Awesome pics.
Just makes me more depressed that I could not be there this year.

Anyway, please tell Bob that Erik in Toronto says hi! :D

Still no live feed though :(
It should sound like it isn't there!

Re: Is the live feed from Carverfest up yet?? How do I access it

To OB156 and whomever else is interested:

As a “newbie”, knowing nobody, I leave it to others to say who is and isn’t here at he Fest. Folks are still arriving, and a few have already had to leave (Steve Ford and his Mrs., who fried their cycle clutch on the way up the beyond-terrible driveway here).

Bob is quite definitely here, and signing stuff to the point where he’s worn out a bunch of gold pens. The Q&A last (Friday) eve was all videotaped. Covered were such subjects as:

Speaker wire and “tube sound”, in which Bob admits that he’s as human as anybody (actually, one can see that right away) “I know there’s no difference, but when I see those beautiful tubes I hear it!"

How to achieve 85% tube sound with a simple tweak…

The Stereophile challenge, whose memory is faulty, and how fast Bob got out of town…

The genesis of the ribbon, Bolander-Graebner,etc.

Bob’s latest project – the theory and ongoing development of a floor-to-ceiling (line source) ribbon array, that he says will be affordable ("I haven't changed").

Another Q&A was scheduled for sometime today – not sure what time, but it doesn’t pay to worry about times, because the schedule for everything gets changed a several times beforehand anyhow. When the actual moment comes, the word spreads like wildfire and all the tribe converges.

The problem with time here is that nobody wants to go to bed, however late, so today, for example, breakfast is just being served now (11:30 AM Saturday). Largely Bob’s fault – turns out he’s a night owl.

He’s also a very fine and humble gentleman, who says he’s quite honored to be here, and means it.

As for taking pictures, LOTS of that going on, and at this point those two tube amps might be the most photographed items in the known universe. And certainly some of the best sounding. Chance for the best pic of all was missed when nobody caught Bob bending over, trying, squinting, with great difficulty, to read the lettering on my anthracite C-4000. Retributive justice denied…

Wish you were here, but check out those videos as they become available.

Very nice accounting of the happenings RobertR, thank you !! Are you a real life journalist by any chance? Please, since Mr. Bob doesn't log on to the site too often, relay my regret at not being able to get there to meet him ! Also, in the next Q&A, please ask about the status of the museum project! Thanks again, gdb :)

gdb's remarks ++. Sure wish I could have been there. Good to see jvandyke_texas lecturing Bob on the changes he made to the C-4000.
