A good friend of mine said this once and I think the same statement is appropriate here.....
Ahhh, the things we do in pursuit of audio nirvana
As far as the CDP? Don't get a Carver CDP. Technology has come leaps and bound since then. There is only one exception that I can think about.....that being the Carver 490t withOUT the stock tubes. They sucked. Do you have a budget in mind for a CDP?


Cables? If we meet up this weekend we could possibly demonstrate many cables....let me get up with the hosts, please.
I need to update my cables on my current CDP. However, that will be my next purchase. I do not have a budget in mind yet.

I drove roughly 1,500 miles within 25 hours. My body felt it when I finally laid down to rest.

The speakers were definitely worth the trip.

Now, if I can just get my hands on the Silver 7T's [-o<

I drove straight through from Maryland to Indiana (600 miles one way) & back within 18 hours to pick up my AL-IIIs~

I'm glad I am not the only one that will do what I did. I would do it again, if I had to. However, I would stay overnight before getting back on the road.

If you don't mind me asking, what is your real name? Gary, George, Tom [me] and another Tom have already spoken with you on this thread. It kinda sucks when we are so guarded by the internet that we can't use our own identity.

If you don't want to use your real name, that's cool. No harm....no foul. I'm just the type of guy that would like to address you properly.

That said, I have sent word to see if it's OK for you to meet up at the hosts house down in Hotlanta. No promises, but seeing as how you are much as a nutcase as we are....traveling so far for "just" a pair of speakers [as our women would say]....I'd say you fit the bill. Still, it's their decision. I should know more by tomorrow night.

George has a friend who is also a member of this board [but rarely posts on either board] that has probably 900 or so tubes to play with. I don't think he'll be buying tubes for a while unless something just strikes his fancy. You see, George has this sickness. I think they call it tuberslutitis or some shit.

He had a nice set of tube amps. I started to buy them. However, I am on the hunt for the Carver Silvers. Although i like the 7Ts, I will jump on a pair of 9Ts.
