Re: Howdy

I like it because even though the Crown is nice clean power, it has a tendency to be a little harsh. I run it between the C-1 and that, seems to smooth the tone a little bit.

Re: Howdy

Welcome to the forum! Yes, that Yaqin Tube Buffer looks very interesting :-k , but on this forum if I can speak for everyone, it's Bob Carver Tube pre-amps and amps along with the tube output stage CD player.

Please don't take that the wrong way with your last sentence. In the contrary, we love "all gear" well, maybe not Boss :lol: :lol: Other brands are more than welcome, that's how we learn about new things! Thank you. Glad you found us, and welcome again to the forum.
oh P.S. If bsturgeon89 responds to your thread he may fool you into thinking he knows what he's talking about, don't believe it! He really doesn't know Shit and has more meaningless post here than anyone!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

It does seem that we have a good number of audioheads in Pittsburgh. Tom, AKA beemers417 or OCCD on his forum, at VintageHIFI has started getting people in Pittsburgh fired up about good audio. I am really amazed how many are willing to stop in his store every other Saturday night and listen to good music and to bring their own amps or speakers down for others to listen too also.

BTW we do consume a few beers so it makes it a pretty fun night. I just can't wait till it warms up so we can smoke cigars. Stupid indoor anti smoking laws. ](*,)

Re: Howdy

Hello and welcome to the forum from a sunny North Carolina. See you around campus.
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.
