Hello All!
My current active system due to cramped conditions until a remodel is complete:
SD/A360
CT-27V
TFM-15cb
JBL L46
Panasonic BDP 50 Blu Ray
Toshiba HD-A35 HD DVD

Gear just itching to be used after the remodel, kept because it's too cool, or sold on craigslist:
AV-405
TFM-6cb (2 of 'em)
TFM-6
Pioneer SA-9500II integrated amp
Pioneer RT-707 (never use it anymore, but looks too cool to get rid of)
Adcom 555 II amp
SAE 4400 active crossover
Yamaha RX-V863 (will replace with Sunfire separates within the next year)
Technics SL 1800 II turntable

Also building JBL 4344 inspired towers. Have all bits and pieces except the MK II crossovers. These will need to wait until the remodel is complete and crossovers built. These will be biamped.

Ok.. I have been AGAINST putting my system in this thread but now i dont care anymore!!

I jam in my room with a Kicker iK500 Docking staition, both my iPod Classic and iPhone, a Monsoon subwoofer,and (2) Xbox 360 Satilite speakers designed by Mirage.

HOPEFULLY!!!! Grand dad will pass down the Lightstar equipment and the malfunctioning 390t CD player so that I can finally be proud to say that I own Carver gear!!! [-o< [-o<

As far as speakers...I'll work some ribbons out of dad (eventually) ^.^ O:) O:)

Hello from Cleveland!

I have been on your site for months, but this is my first post. Thank you guys for all the great info on this site! I have just two Carver components, a TFM-35 and TFM-25. I am thinking about getting a TFM-45 for my main channels as you guys all say that is a sweet amp! I like the fact that is supposed to mirror the Silver Seven. I will attach pictures of my Home Theater...I love my room, I spend alot of time there listening to Records, DVD-A's and Blu-Ray!

Very nice gjm76! I love the built in component rack > that is sweet. I'm not sure about that tree? Is that one of those fake speaker trees?? ](*,)
Or maybe one of those sub's that look like a tree? ](*,)

Jag, you just came up with one hell of an idea. Sunfire sub trees. The shaking leaves would be a nice touch. Need to run that one by Bob. :lol:

That is one hell of a good idea!! but, ummm, Bob would have to wire each leaf individually with of course pure silver wire running LED's on the leaves. The sub would be in the base with cross overs inside the tree trunk and each bass note would cause a fantastic light show with all the leaves going ape shit!! Yes, could you please run this by Bob. I think I will let you run this by him, let me know what he thinks OK?
