Hello all! New Guy Here.

Post by mhmacw » Mon Mar 08, 2010 8:04 pm

Hello, my name is Dan. I've loved stereos since I was old enough to push the power button. I've loved Carver/Stillwater since a very surreal night in the early ninties. A couple of Harleys, a demo Land Rover and two very distinguished gentlemen came to visit that evening. Honestly, its one of the most memorable nights of my life. I'm glad to have the opportunity to become part of this forum and thank you all that have made a meeting place for Carver enthusiasts available to folks like me. Thanks again, I look forward to the ride! Kind Regards, Dan

OK, I'd love too! When I was in early highschool, my father had a customer at his Harley shop named Chuck Cox. Chuck was the (good stuff) salesman at Progressive Audio in Medford, Oregon. One summer night Chuck and Bob came to my dads shop in a Land Rover that was set up for demo of the new Stillwater and Sunfire mobile audio combination (though it was dark and I didnt get to dismantle anything I believe it was riddled with Kicker tens). I was allowed to take part in the demo and was blown away by the absolute clarity and definition of reproduced sound like I'd never heard before. Though I was "into" stereos and was bugging the neighbor guy whenever I could hear him playing his tunes (and got some great Steve Vai auditoins from a rather nice Yamaha system) the demo truck was a completely different animal. As you could imagine, if Bobs driving it, its probably sounding pretty good haha. That night was a definitive turning point in my quest for sound. Bob turned my ears on to something I'd never dreamed possible and left a lasting impression that still rings to this day. To Bob, cause I'm sure you bounce around here from time to time, thanks again for opening my ears and showing me what all this "stuff" can sound like if you take the time to do it right. Let me not forget Chuck in all of this as there were numerous times I went to the Pro Audio to "look" at something when Chuck knew darned good and well at 15 I couldnt afford 10k for gear but let me audition it none the less. Hats off to you Chuck, Ill never forget that shovelution...87 and a half if I remember my dates correctly.Well thats my story guys. I hope I wasn't to long winded. All the best , Dan

Thanks for the kind welcoms folks. No, unfortunatly I'm not in Oregon any longer. After 25 years as an Oregon native (rusted not tanned haha) I've somehow got my self to the central midwest. Im now north of Peroria Illinois. I do miss my mountains and steelhead but sometimes you have to go where the money is. Youall get me thinking too much about the Pac Northwest and I might need a tissue lol. I see in your screen name jag the 97470. Thats Roseburg? Correct? I lived in Roseburg when I was in second grade, went to Green district. then moved to White City. We get to take a long awaited trip back home this summer when the kids are out of school. Have no fear! Dans goin fishing on the Rogue River oohhh yea! Well better get them of to school as it were. Thanks for the hospitality people its wonderful! Take Care, Dan
