Hello from Northern Virginia

Hi, I am new to the forum. I have been an audiophile since the very early 1970s and have had some Carver equipment through the years starting with a Phase Linear 4000. Currently I have a Sunfire 300 x 2 amp which is actually my second amp of this type. I sold the first one a while back #-o. I have a pair of Infinity RS-4.5 speakers which are power hungry and whose impedance drops to around 2 ohms in the deep bass-- a good candidate for a Carver amp, yes? Other amps/preamps include Bryston and McIntosh, Sony XA7ES and Arcam CD31 CD players, and Roksan Xerxes X and Technics SP-25 turntables. Lotsa records and CDs. I have always admired Bob as an innovative engineer and entrepreneur.

Welcome we are crazy guy's and gals, I also like your avatar.

I was looing at a used Roksan Xerxes 20, a nice T/T, but a little pricy for me.
I ended up going with a VPI Classic.

Hello !!!!!!
Good judgment comes from experience,but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

Gotta love that N. VA traffic.
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.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Re: Hello from Northern Virginia

Hello and welcome to the forum. You are from my original stomping grounds. I was born in Fairfax county hospital and lived in Springfeild/North Springfeild until I was about 19. Back then, it was a great place to grow up.
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.

It still is a pretty nice place although the traffic has really gotten bad! :( We live in Oakton which is near Fairfax. I am originally from Long Island and so while it is getting crowded here in Virginia, I count my blessings!
