Happy New Carver Owner!

Post by AFEuphman » Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:29 pm

Hello! Well, I'm psyched to be able to post to this site! I've been a lurking Carver fan for a while, and when my Polk SDA-CRS+ speakers couldn't stand being driven by my junky $50 amp anymore, I hit craigslist! One trip to Richmond and one slightly annoyed wife later, I have a really awesome CM1090 integrated and, because of the repair section of this site, a SD/A-360 that doesn't skip tracks and the tray works properly! Yes!!!

Seriously, I've been hoping to move up to something better for a while. I found this site and those components at just the right time. This stuff really sounds great!

I'm a euphonium and trombone player in the USAF Heritage of America Band at Langley AFB, VA, and have been in for almost 11 years. Thanks for keeping this site going!
